Ready to Conquer the Sky

I have tried various modes of transportation during my travel. I have conquered both the road and the rails, the land and the sea, but not yet the sky. I have not tried riding an airplane yet!!  

I have tried riding the Jeepney, the "King of the Road"
But not an Airplane yet!
jeepney has always been my favorite, it's cheap and it suits well with my kuripot budget

I have tried riding the Tricycle
But not an Airplane yet
Well in most provinces, these three-wheeled beasts are the champs

I have tried riding the Bus (ordinary/airconditoned)
But not an Airplane yet
buses can be butt-numbing, but my butt loves it

I have tried riding the train (PNR, LRT, MRT)
But not an Airplane yet
the cheapest and most convenient ride in town (except during the rush hour)

I have tried riding an outrigger boat
But not an Airplane yet
into the island of Cagbalete, I faced the monstrous waves.

I have tried riding a ferry boat
But not an Airplane yet

the first time I left the Island of Luzon was during my Corregidor trip

I have tried riding a RORO
But not an Airplane yet
Roll On Roll Off  - my memorable first solo trip to Marinduque

I have done topload rides
But not an Airplane yet
Topload in Laguna, Sagada, and Marinduque. Where the best views are seen

I have experienced riding a boat for P2.00 only
But not a Piso Fare Airplane yet

oh yes, only P2.00, I was able to cross a tributary of Pasig River at Sta. Ana Manila

I have tried riding a Calesa
But not an Airplane yet

what's better than touring the Old Town Vigan in a Calesa

I have tried riding a six-wheeler truck
But not an Airplane yet
that's right nothing can stop us now

 So what's the big deal if I have not tried riding a plane yet? 
ughmmm.. nothing really.. haha
I'm just getting ready for my first plane ride

  1. Habal-habal, raft, horseback, 4x4, bike etc. marami pang pwedeng masubukan. Try mo rin dun sa "hinihila ng kalabaw" - hindi ko alam tawag dun. May ganun sa province namin in the early 90s - my most memorable mode of transportation.

  2. haha.. oo nga, yan yung mga hndi ko pa natry.... gusto ko rin magpajila sa kalabaw.

  3. Excitement galore lang - let's follow it up with a cruise ship naman! Nax! And an international flight will follow soon! Yey! :D

  4. Next goal dapat sa private jet ko. hahaha! joke! Bon Voyage!:)

  5. ay natry ko na mag pahila sa kalabaw nung 5 years old ata ako. sa bukid kasi ako lumaki. kumpleto ang childhood. Pero pag ngayon ko tinry yun, tiyak na sira ang track record ng kalabaw sa pagiging pinaka masipag na hayop. Hika ang aabutin niya. ^_^

    once you pop you can't stop. Prang plane ride din yan. you'll see. Enjoy and make sure sa window seat ka ha. God Bless!
