Infected with the Travel Bug

October 8th, 2011

If you could do something with no limitations and restrictions what would it be? For me, it would be traveling to places where I want in and when I want it. I grew up in a family who loves to travel. Every Sunday we take a trip to our grandma’s place and spend the whole day bonding with relatives. Once a month, my Dad would bring the whole family to visit our farm. While he’s busy checking on our crops, me and my siblings would spend the day doing anything from playing hid and seek to enjoying horseback riding and playing with our farm animals.

Now, that I have a family of our own. I and my hubby see to it that we could set a date and take our kids on family vacation. It’s our way to unwind and distress ourselves from the grind of our busy work schedule from and our way too to reward our children for doing well with their studies. Four years ago, our kids tasted their first airplane travel. We could see the excitement from their eyes especially our daughter who jumped with exhilaration before boarding the plane. They have already flown four times visiting different places and I think that all of us are now infected with the travel bug.

Last year, we decided to travel by land and spent the birthday of my husband in Davao. It was a five-hour long drive but it was all worth it. We spent whole day in a resort where the kids took pleasure in a man made waves, visited a nature’s park, and spent a cold afternoon in a mountain resort. What else? We enjoyed our hotel hopping for three days. How I wish we could have all the money and time for traveling. I love to visit the famous Disney Orlando Hotels or stay for a week at Hotel Inn Lake Buenavista. My sister-in-law who lives in the U.S. invited the whole family for summer vacation. If only approval of VISA is easy, I am sure we have been to her place long time ago. I am not losing hope, I know one of these days we could tour around the famous states in America.
