It is just hard to believe that there are still people who think that taking a trip is an extravagant activity and that it is just a waste of time and energy. Okay. I’m not discounting the fact that travelling can be expensive, it eats up a lot of time and it can be tiring. Yet it is also enriching, refreshing and reviving!
Perhaps, those who have negative views about traveling have mostly witnessed its negative side – how it can drain finances, time and energy that can be spent on something else.
Well, if only those people know how to strike a balance those things, then they are going to be as excited as I am every time I get to go out of town.
To me, taking a trip doesn’t mean driving or flying hours away from home. A short drive to Rizal Province, which is just on the eastern boundary of Metro Manila, is already an exciting trip for me.
Just thinking about its adventure camps, mountains, waterfalls, rivers, churches, and food makes me gush. I’ve already seen a lot of the province, yet I don’t think I’ve even gotten to even half of what it has to offer.
I can go on and on about how Rizal is a paradise close to the city and why it just keeps me coming back. I’ll just sum it up to two things: a new revelation every visit and my favorite bulalo. Wait for my next blog or better yet, see for yourself! 🙂
