Going Home Soon

Hi guys! After nearly three months of staying in Hartford, Connecticut, it’s almost time for us to go back to the Philippines. With only a few more days left, hubby and I are already nearly done packing our things. Everything’s almost ready for our flight back to Manila, except for us. Well, mostly me, actually.

I am gonna miss this place. It’s just so different from back home. Surprisingly, downtown Hartford is a lot more laid back than I thought it would be. I love how old buildings here are old and preserved well while some buildings have used original parts of an older building to be part of a new one.

I also love the Bushnell Park that’s just a few blocks away from where we lived. One can do a “tree walk” and see trees that are home to a lot of squirrels and birds that freely roam around the park. A carousel built around 1914 that’s still operational is also located here in this park. Hubby and I spent a lot of afternoons here, just sitting on the grass while he would play songs on his guitar. A park as beautiful as this is something that I definitely wish we had in Manila.

I didn’t really get to see the sights here that much but we’re praying for another opportunity for us to be able to go back here in the U.S. For now, it’s time to go back home to Manila. It’s still home. 🙂

My First Solo Trip: Bacolod (pt.1)

Hi guys! I’ll be in Bacolod till the 21st and I’m pretty excited about the whole thing! 😀 I will be flying solo for the first time ever, and thinking about it just makes the butterflies in my stomach flutter around. This is my second time to be in Bacolod, so I’d like to visit the places I went to before, with Manokan Country and Calea on top of my list, and I’ve made a list of other places I haven’t visited before.

With just a couple of hours before I have to leave for the airport, I must say I’m doing a terrible job with my stuff. And I’m blogging now… Gahhhhh what do I do? What do I do?!? Haha! I’ve semi-packed my luggage, and I can’t seem to think what else I could’ve missed. For 3 days, should I have this much clothes??? Aside from my clothes, toiletries, and some pasalubong, I’ve decided to bring my crochet WIP (work-in-progress) to work on at the airport and while on the plane. OMG I’m flying SOLO!!! Gaaaaah! I’m sort of excited and panicky and happy and scared and terrified yet super duper looking forward to this trip and I honestly don’t know what to feel first… haha! 🙂

Anyway, I’d better go now… See ya later!
