I’m not that adventurous… but I’ve been telling everyone I need a vacation – somewhere exotic, somewhere relaxing. And although the Philippines is as exotic as it gets, I tend to drift somewhere further. However, my family’s call is louder than the enticing and soothing nature’s call…. So in short, I have to go home.
It’s been almost a year since my last vacation. I am happy the company I’m working for the past 8 years allows me to take a vacation every year, paid leave and free airfare – perks of working in the Middle East.
When you work in scorching heat for almost a decade, you tend to miss greenery. I miss seeing trees, I miss road trips seeing rice fields left and right. It maybe corny, but I miss those. I miss the rain, drizzling rain – not the habagat-storm-signal type of rain.
And now that my vacation’s almost here, I feel lazy at work. I always associate it with holiday mood. I told my boss my sloppiness is actually because of my upcoming holiday. It’s taking over me. I need the vacation. I must have a vacation.
I don’t have plans yet what to expect, what to do, where to go, once I’m home, but I am seriously considering going with some of Filipino backpackers for day trips. If you ever get a chance to join, hope I can see you and organize an event with the Backpackers of the Philippines.
Note: Sorry I haven’t been writing for a while. (again, holiday mood)… 🙂
