I visited my sister in Surigao City
September 11, 2012 3:35am CST
I attended a seminar at Cagayan de Oro City for about 3 days. At first, I was thinking of proceeding to Surigao City after the seminar but I was not sure if I can do it. I sent a text message to my sister and she said that her girls were happy to know that I was going there. That was the statement that made me decide to visit them. I could not afford to fail my nieces' expectation that I'll be going there. That was the first time that I traveled in a place that I have not yet gone and it was by night. I started traveling at about 1:00 pm and arrived at the place already past 9:00 am.. The girls were very happy and we had a great deal together taking pictures for 2 days. I was likewise happy that I saw them again after several months.

I hope that you found the seminar interesting. It was wonderful you were able afterwards to visit your sister and your nieces. My sister lives within walking distance. I have two nephews and two nieces. It was superb that you traveled to there overnight because it saved you a day of traveling. It was very worthwhile your seminar was on fairly near to your sister's home. I sometimes travel by train overnight sleeping in a comfortable compartment.

Thanks, I learned so much from that seminar. All the topics are pertaining to my work. It was not really near but at least it was almost half way from where I am residing. From the seminar site, we travel only about 4 to 5 hours to reach my residence however we have to cross the sea at the end of the land trip. that is by bus, that was about 4 hours, I think. Then by ferry for 20 minutes. While my sister's place is 8 to 9 hours travel all by bus from the seminar site. That was really enjoyable.
