Paoay lake can be seen from the lawn. Staring at it was relaxing. How nice it would be to have a garden with a massive view of the lake. Dreaming...
After traveling for 8 days around the Philippines, it was finally, time to go home. Though vacation's over, I felt more than ready to go back because I missed my family.
Ilocos Norte was my last destination in my birthday backpacking trip. My two friends continued their travel to Ilocos Sur while I headed back to Manila to go back to work since I've already been gone for a week.
I started the journey alone and was ending it alone. I waited for a bus from the highway excitedly. No more living out of my backpack. Although it's thrilling to be on the road, I love being home more. :)
I might not have to explore much but I got the vacation I wanted. :)
This post is part of my 8-day birthday backpacking trip from Mindanao to Luzon
