Manila 2014

I've been a long time gone now
Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down
But I've always found my way somehow

Taking the Long Way Around

Short post! I've been missing all the traveling done when the hubby was here so I looked through some photos taken during our trip to Vigan and the stopovers in between. 


Before taking the plane to Vigan, we had to stay overnight in Manila. It was a good thing that my sister was already there for her one year internship so we saved on hotel expenses by crashing there for one night and catching the midday flight to Laoag the next day. One Wilson's Place is this  tall condo building that was easy to spot but we got lost arriving from the airport and had to walk back from where the taxi dropped us off before we spotted the LBC sign that marked where the building was across the street. The familiar faces (Manilyn, my sister!)  were a welcome sight, especially since they both had a lot of stories to tell and I had a lot to catch up on. 


Greenhills was just a short walk away and Manilyn showed off her skills in directions by telling us stories of how she navigated the streets when going for groceries and going off to church on her own.  We walked all the way to Greenhills, savoring being in a quiet (-er) part of Manila, passing by the hospital where my sister was spending her internship, and did a little exploring of the shops before getting a bite to eat. Afterwards, it was another trip on foot back to the condo, where we got some much needed shut-eye for the next day's trip.
