6 months ago, my friends and I decided to embark on an adventure that was pretty out of plan. We decided to visit a special place called Gaas, Balamban. What I thought was just a typical hangout turned out to be one of the most memorable moments in my life as a young adult. It was surely an adventure worth remembering. It was exceptional, not only for the reason that I was with friends, but it was a day with many firsts- my first visit to Gaas and my first time to be able to travel a long distance ride on a motorbike.
We left the city during the night where the streets were busy, not only the streets but also the sidewalks, people walked from place to place, running for errands and if there’s one thing that I love with busy streets is the sound of music everywhere; From the stores down to the honks of different vehicles in this never-ending traffic of Cebu.
After an hour of travel, I felt a drop of rain on my head and it was about time when the rain came pouring when we arrived at our place. Immediately, we set out the table and placed all the foods so we could start rocking the night out. Haha! After a while, the rain transitioned from drizzle to heavy rain. However, the rain didn’t stop us from having fun. We played, talked, and laughed all night with about anything, drank coffee to keep us warm, and stayed up past midnight ‘til we didn’t notice it was already 5 o’clock in the morning. And then we slept early in the morning to boost our alertness and energy level for our activity right after.
Yes, we were stranded but it’s so nice to be stranded with awesome friends. The weather didn’t stop us from having fun. In fact, the weather progressed our relationship to levels never imagined possible. Haha. To break the silence, we decided to have a Videoke session since singing is the thing that I was into that time. Haha. The others were playing basketball game via pc and when it seemed to become dull, they play with the cards. When night came, we spent it by watching a movie together and because I didn’t like it and was so dead beat, I fell asleep during the first part of the film. Haha.
Each of us experiences day after day after day of clear blue sky, then all of the sudden storm clouds appear on the horizon. The storm passes. Then once again, it’s a better and brighter day. They say the thing about storms are its beautiful sunshine after it. And I couldn’t agree more! Look at that photo! It was one Sunday morning and I woke up 5 o’clock in the morning and was so happy to see the beautiful scenery that God has painted right before my naked eyes.
Behold! The beauty of nature! I just can’t help but love this picture! It looks like a painting. Isn’t it nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of the citiy?
How about you? Do you have any unforgettable adventure with friends?
