We had a long weekend last week so my friend and I decided to go falls-hopping in Samboan, a fifth class municipality about 150 kilometers south of Cebu City.
We arrived at the South Bus terminal at around 1 AM for our 2 AM Ceres bus, but to our dismay, the bus did not arrive until 3:30 AM. By then, another bus company, Sunrays, had arrived. Despite Sunray’s non-aircon bus, we opted to take it since it was a direct trip to Samboan (Ceres was via Barili).
Because we were exhausted from work and all the waiting, we slept the whole duration of our trip. I only woke up when I felt the first rays of sunshine on my face.
Here’s my first view of that day’s sunrise.
As the bus cruised along the highway, I relished the feel of the summer breeze on my face. This is actually why I prefer to ride non-air-con buses during trips to provinces – it’s nice to inhale air that is devoid of pollution and smog.
Another reason why I prefer taking non-air-con buses on provincial trips is that on them, I can snap photos anytime. (Most air-conditioned buses have immovable windows that prevent me from taking really good shots of the scenery before me.)
I love how the clouds looked fluffy. Too bad I had to again crop this since the signage is right underneath the sun.
From Boljoon to Oslob, I kept on snapping photos in between snacking on the sandwiches I brought with me.
Here’s one of my better photos from this set.
I love how the coconuts and trees framed the sunrise on the above photo.
Here’s another favorite because the plants again nicely framed the sunrise and clouds.
Here’s a teaser photo.
