Our Fantastic 2011 Family Vacation

The last two weeks have been hectic and exciting for my family. Sponsors in my big family took me, my wife and my kids to a two-week big family vacation that included trips in Cebu, Bohol, Camiguin, Bukidnon and Cagayan de Oro City.

Some of the places we visted

I have summarized the places we visited in the diagram above. It was a mix of air, land and sea travel. There were lots of sight-seeing, fun photos, swimming and snorkeling. I'll be blogging about each of them in greater detail in future posts.

Though it was a fast-paced vacation, it was very fulfilling. We were able to experience a lot of things as a big family with the limited time we had. When we arrived home, our skins were darker but our smiles were brighter.

Too bad I was not feeling well since Day 1 of the vacation. But I was able to carry my body well enough to enjoy it. Others in the family got colds and fever too. Maybe I brought the virus to them :)

Anyhow, the vacation has given me more than just time with my big family. It has also given me a fresh look at the beauty of the country, the Philippines.
