Philippine Road Trip – Day 2

I felt better after a good night’s sleep. Thanks to Star Garden Tower Hotel. 🙂

John and I ate at McDonald’s because that’s the only breakfast place available early in the morning. We decided to start early since we still have a long way to go.
I asked John not to feel bad anymore. What happened the previous day was in the past. (For Day 1 of this road trip – please check:

You know, John was more disappointed than I was. Actually, he really took it worst that I did. Maybe because in my case, I was already prepared for the worst. Like what everybody says, interview at the US embassy is like a game. If they like you on sight, they’ll give you a visa. If they don’t, too bad for you. 🙂  If you like, pay again the fee next time. And hope that luck is on your side that day… Nice right?

So John and I agreed that we will not let it spoil our vacation. We work everyday, even on a Sunday sometimes. So I thought, we both deserved to rest.

Somewhere in Quezon Province.

I am glad we took a road trip because John and I loved every bit of it. The countryside was gorgeous and the view was great.

Giant Silver Swan Bottle in Quezon Province. 🙂

We stopped in Naga City for lunch and rested for awhile. John bought a back support thing from a hardware in SM Naga. I’m so happy  he found it because it made driving more comfortable for him. 🙂
Finally, we arrived in Legazpi City around 5 in the afternoon. We looked for hotels and decided to stay at La Roca. I loved the place. It’s just a 2 storey hotel so it was not so crowded. The food was great too…
But what I love the most about it is that, the majestic Mayon Volcano is just very near. John drove a couple kilometer and we’re there.
We just stayed on the road, watching this magnificent mountain from afar. It stood there, breathing smoke, on a beautiful day looking so grand and regal… I felt lucky and blessed that I was given a chance to see and take photos of it.
