AJ and I chose to have night flight out from Manila to Cebu last Thursday because of the long lenten break and we wanted to avoid the traffic and long line at the airport. But we not so sure of our plan ourselves, so we still left our home 2 hours before the scheduled 9 pm flight and got at the airport in less than 30 minutes.
There was no traffic or line at all. The NAIA Terminal 2 looked almost deserted with very few people waiting for their flight.
We traveled light.
I always bring a book with me every time I travel. For this trip, I brought with me Elin Hilderbrand’s Barefoot, which was so good I was able to finish it in 3 days! A perfect summer read.
Thankfully, our 9:00 p.m. PAL flight was not delayed and we arrived at my brother’s place in Cebu at around 11 in the evening. We hit the sack right away.
We woke up early on Friday to get ready for our ferry trip to Bohol. My darling little nephew, Liam, greeted us in his cute bike:
For our ferry ride to Bohol, my brother booked us seats at Ocean Jet. It was a peak season for travelers, and the seats he was able to get for all of us were those in the business class section already (the cheaper seats have sold out). But am still glad he got us the most expensive seats, because the comfort we experienced in this 2-hour ride was so worth it.
Even Liam enjoyed it.
The only downside was that they do not serve food. They sell chips and instant noodles – that’s all. No coffee, even. And while I appreciated the movie they played on-board, it was so boring (and corny haha) so now you know why I was able to finish my book.
Thankfully, the water was so calm that day (and my cellphone too) that AJ and I were able to catch some sleep and re-charge for a busy afternoon that we will have in Bohol.
We arrived at our destination a little after 11:30 a.m. – time for lunch!
