It was last year when I first heard of Fortune Island, and because I know for a fact that in this life I will probably never ever step a foot in Greece and on this island are pillars which resemble those of The Parthenon, I immediately locked it as a target. Last month, while looking for beaches to go to, I read in the comments of a blog post about a trip to the island organized by #JJTours. I contacted two of my friends and in no time I was already at the bank paying for the down payment. What did just happen.
For a change, I spent Valentine’s Day on the beach with two of my roommates during my first year in college. On the eve of the Dinagyang Festival last month, we were out drinking celebrating it our way; that’s where they mentioned their plan of visiting Marinduque. As I can’t just let this life pass by with my seemingly growing love for the
bitch beach, I didn’t bother putting up a fight.
This year’s Independence Day brought me back to the place where I earned my degree in Computer Science. The holiday fell on a Tuesday so naturally one just has to file a leave on the Monday and call it a looong weekend. As for my ticket, booking it was semi-accidental. I was just playing around with Cebu Pacific Air’s Travel Funds when boom! History.
