It is January once again and I found myself thinking about the trip I made in January 2009, while I was 28 weeks pregnant – a trip to Cagayan de Oro in Misamis and Camiguin with Travel Factor. It was the first ever TF trip I made with Tikoy Tan, and there, got to meet her own circle of TF friends. It was a really fun trip, made even more exciting by the presence of Maya, AJ and Ver! I love you guys. 🙂
H and I actually arrived later than the others. We were on a different flight with Kim. When we got to CDO, the first thing H and I did was find an Ob-Gyne to sign my Cebu Pacific Expectant Mother form for the flight back to Manila four days after. That was actually quite of an easy thing to do. We then spent whatever was left of the day eating at Bigby’s Cafe and Restaurant! My, my, Bigby’s is great. I love Bigby’s!
We left early the next morning on an hour- and-a-half van trip to the wharf in Balingoan, Misamis Oriental – about 86 kilometers from Cagayan de Oro. From there, we boarded a barge that took us to the port of Benoni in the island of Camiguin in an hour or so.
On the ferry with us were a lot of boy scouts going to the island to attend a Jamboree.
