Are You Travelling This Christmas?

November 15, 2012 6 By admindel

In this part of the world, it may not be December yet but Christmas is already in the air!
Since the month of December could mean school and work break for most people, then that could also mean free time to travel as well.
My hubby and I have spent three Christmas seasons together and I just realized that all three were spent outside of our home city! Wow, maybe this means that for this year we may not do any travelling for a change. But well, it’s not yet December, maybe we might end up going somewhere for Christmas again this year.

This native lantern caught my eye in Bohol (2010).


We were in Bohol for Christmas in 2009 and 2010. Our first Christmas had to be spent in Bohol in 2009 because my father who resided there died just days before Christmas so we decided to go ahead and just spend Christmas time there. Thankfully, my father’s close friend invited us for Christmas dinner so that lessened our sense of loss that time. Christmas 2010 came and my sister invited us to spend Christmas again in Bohol. I would say that this seemed really like our real first Christmas together as a couple minus our grieving in 2009. And for last year’s Christmas, we spent it with my other sister’s family in Gen. Santos City. It was quite a long travel from our place in Butuan. We took a van which meant about 5 hours going to Davao and then 2 hours (again by van) to Gen. Santos. But we did have a great time there.
How about you? Are you up to some traveling somewhere special this Christmas?
