Everything is ready: passport, ticket, and a bagful of essentials. On Sunday, I will be boarding an airbus bound to Singapore.
Although the rush of excitement runs through my veins, I regret the fact that due to this trip, I will not be able to be with my friends from high school. Light beer, dance-til-you-drop, chit-chats, pure laughters – those are just some of the things I would’ve missed this Friday just because of the preparations for my Singapore trip. Not to mention the apologies I had to make (sorry Camille, Ivan, James and the gang who planned this Friday night-out).
A new discovery *red light blinks*: planning an itinerary abroad is not easy. Plans went well for me during my former domestic trips, but abroad? Whew! We didn’t book for a “package tour”… in other words, we have to package our own trip – in a country with places with sooooo exotic names! (Boon Keng, Bukit Gombak, Tiong Bahru, blah blah blah!) Oh crap! Now I have to find hotels, landmarks and shopping centers (interesting but time-consuming) on my own.
Moments after I Googled in search for the perfect adventure, I found this activity (doing your own itinerary) very interesting. You are in control of where you want to go, and you even discover more about the country where you are going to. In tour packages, you are locked and unable to go where you want to but in this way of travel, you can do anything. Hmmmm, now booking an escort is possible… *giggles* I was just joking of course! I’m not even of legal age (that is why I still have to get a DSWD permit, how awful!)
Preparations are on the go *green light blinks* and there is no stopping us now. By the first day of June, I will be back. It’s a time-out for me (therefore, no cellphone so that I will enjoy the holiday). Anyway, my phone’s international roaming feature wasn’t activated. I am not even sure if I will be able to be online.
