Roadtrip to Aurora (Balete Park)

     I’ve been hibernating for a quite long time because of my busy work, even in the weekends. Wednesday afternoon I received a message if I want to join with their roadtrip going to Aurora and Pampanga our budget will be 1,000.00 each back and fort, share for gas, toll fees and foods, at first I’m hesitant because I’m not sure if my mom will allow me to travel because it’s Lenten season. After my work when, I arrived in our house the first word came from to my mouth “ Ma may biyahe ako.” saan “Aurora at Pampanga manonood ng ipapako sa krus” fortunately she permitted me, spontaneous travel indeed.

     We leave Manila at 12:00AM Thursday midnight to evade from heavy traffic. No Google map and GPS(Global Positioning System) and only our instinct because one of our buddy have been there but almost 10years ago hahaha. When we were at the NLEX our buddy got perplexed we passed the right exit because they open a new road in Expressway, we’re lost for almost less an hour fortunately there are signboards but we don’t know where we will be our exit and also the the funny thing was the signboard we saw was “Manila” baka daw makauwi kami ng Manila pabalik hahahaha

     After we visited the Cagbalete Island our group decided to change our route instead of Lucena we will take the Lucban bound route and to try the famous delicacy in Lucban the longganisa fortunately sir Irog suggested to visit the Kamay ni Hesus and I became interested because many devotees visit this place especially for those who are sick to heal from God because of their faith. As ma’am Weng said for those who only interested will join to visit the Kamay ni Hesus and as respect to the others we didn’t force to join the others because not all the participants were Catholic and others were tired. I never hesitate if I will go or not, I guess this is God purpose why we change our route, to remember him and to be grateful all the blessings we received, that we met new friends through our adventures.

     My buddy asked me a good place where we can spend our summer weekend getaway, I suggested to her the Cagbalete Island because of its long stretch of powdery white sand during low tide that I saw in the photos of other blogs. I read some blogs of what’s the best resort where we can stay that can offer comfortable and affordable price of accommodation and good facilities and I found out Villa Cleofas was the most recommended by the travelers who were visited the Cagbalete Island and offers many activities like hiking, horseback riding, volley ball and kayaking. I texted one of the owner sir Tonet for our reservation because I’m expecting a crowd of tourist during weekends and the summer vacation is already near.

     The group met at JAC Liner Kamias terminal near GMA Kamuning fortunately none of us were late because the last trip of JAC Liner bound to Lucena is 11PM, at 2:00AM we arrived in Lucena grand terminal because we will catch the 4AM first trip of mini bus (NCR Rieton Lines) going to Mauban Quezon, for almost 1hour of travel time from Lucena to Mauban.

     Saturday morning past 8 o’clock my phone beeped, I read the message “saan tayo ngayon?” I never expected someone will ask me where my destination for that day. I replied to my buddy “hindi ko alam” and she replied to me “ayaw ko masayang ang oras ko ngayong weekend”. Baka magtampo kung tanggihan ko kanyang request. I want a cheap travel and also educational, I texted my PTB friends who visited the Paco Park fortunately all of them replied to me and they taught me how to get there.
