We didn’t stay long, just enough to look around, and light a candle, and say our prayers. It was the first church in the series of churches, and chapels for our rounds.
Understand and Live With It — That You’re a Filipina traveling by herself.
Stay in love.
So far it has been nearly four weeks after my 12 day jaunt at Palawan. What I thought would be my last travel before doing a travel haitus for the rest of the year was jinxed by a message from a travel buddy I’ve also just come to befriended on the road. Before, in the middle, and right before my Palawan trip ended, I got several messages for a standing invite for — GIVE Project to Manobo Tribe children at Pigtauranan, Pangantucan, Bukidnon. Travel was a bonus, delivering gifts was the highlight.
There is more traveling than just seeing new places, and making new friends. For some, traveling has become so rewarding that they give back. The GIVE Project started at Ifugao initiated by Heiz Ramos [Journeying Pinay] with the efforts to deliver school supplies, slippers, and treats to schools at far flung communities. The success of the GIVE Ifugao led to another project took nearly a year to realize. So in a heart beat, only after two nights of comfortable sleep in my familiar sheets, I set out to Cagayan de Oro to meet with H for GIVE Bukidnon with two other travel bloggers Tupe [Trekero], and Bon [Con Tour Blog].
|And Journeying Pinay was always all smiles.|
To the Givers, and the people behind the GIVE Project, may your lives be blessed more, your soles bring you farther, your hearts to care more for others, and may you be inspirations to give back.
