Drift

Tomorrow I’m off to a very short vacation.

The ship will leave Manila Harbor two in the afternoon, and arrive in Capiz morning the next day. I'll then drop by my future in-laws in Roxas City before traveling for an hour to my hometown in Aklan. With luck, I hope to get fitted for my barong before Thursday end.

Friday and Saturday will be for other wedding matters and rest (sigh).

Sunday morning looks promising. Maybe I could visit Boracay before boarding the Manila-bound ship at Caticlan before 7pm.

The trip itself is already a break, maybe a reason why I always prefer traveling by ship than by plane.

To be gone and drifting nowhere, even for a while, is a welcome solitude.

Have a restful Lenten break.
