How many times have you jumped out of your skin just because your little ones suddenly disappeared in the middle of a busy airport or big shopping mall? What about coming to a trip ill-prepared for frigid weather and long hike? But the most common and most hilarious of all time, our experiences with the most ubiquitous of all travel essentials--the camera. These and more in this week's edition of FIRSTPERSON.
Let's get started:
So, fine. Keribells na ang lamig. We took a jeep to Batad Saddle Point and I asked where we were going and sabi nila sa akin we're gonna walk to the village daw ng Batad. I thought a few meters lang, so I changed to my Thai Pants which was heavy and long and looked like a long skirt. Then, we trekked for 2 friggin hours!!!! We stopped na sa village for brunch tapos dumeretso agad sa Tappiyah Falls... still with my Thai pants on trekking up and down the terraces cause I couldn't change kasi my things were back at Saddle Point and I was only wearing undies inside. It was a daytrip, so the same afternoon we trekked all the way back to Saddle Point. All the time, I was dragging the long pair of heavy pants. Haggard!To make things worse, when we passed by one of the villages, there were kids following me screaming 'Bakla! Bakla! Bakla!'--Robbie Bautista of www.thetravellingdork.com
