"welcome to Philippine Airlines bound for Manila. expected time of arrival is 6:00am". i was now inside the plane for the earliest flight back to Manila. i've been to Cebu several times but there's always something new to discover on each trip.satisfied with all the photos that i've taken during my trip to Bantayan island and metropolitan Cebu, i thought it was already time to keep my digital camera and rest. as the plane ascends, i watched by the window the city lights of Cebu during dawn. the photo above shows Cebu city (left) and the island of Mactan (right). the colorful skies displayed on my window made me decide not to sleep and instead watch the sunrise from the plane. following Cebu's northern tip, i noticed that we were actually passing by the island of Bantayan. seeing the island from the plane confirms that i was really meant to be there. i noticed the shape of the Bantayan island with the neighboring Virgin and Hilantaga-an island. going north leaving the islands of Visayas and we were now entering the Luzon island. i observed that there's a mountain shape tip coming from the skies. it was actually Mt. Mayon's peak! the Philippines only nearly perfect cone shaped mountain. 40minutes has passed and the sun's rays are really stunning from my point of view. it looks like they were one with the clouds in displaying the sunrise's beauty. as we fly lower, this time we were over Mt. Banahaw. from all the flights that i've taken to and from Manila, i've never been this close to seeing Mt. Banahaw from the plane.
it simply shows that we were now approaching the Manila runway as we see more houses below. we were now landing with a view of Makati city's skyline and Fort Bonifacio.
it was another one memorable escape trip. i didn't expect this trip will really be this exciting. thanks for joining me on this travel.
