Our plane departed at around 7 p.m. Guam time and expected to arrive at 9 p.m. Philippine time. Our flight was fully occupied and I had to endure more or less 4 hours of being seated away from my family. We had an uncomfortable flight, there were a lot of turbulence along the way, wasn't able to relate with the food they served me (sorry...), and the kids were not feeling well (did I mention we all had cough) which made me worry a lot, thinking my wife was left alone with our kids. Still, everything turned out well, we arrived safe and sound in Manila... and we thanked the Lord for a safe trip.
From NAIA Terminal 1, we rode a shuttle provided by the airport to Terminal 3. And since our flight to Davao was at 3:45 a.m. the following day, we decided to wait inside the airport terminal. We had a midnight snack with the kids (good to see prices to be lower and in pesos... LOL). The only downfall was, even if we are known for our hospitality, a lot of passengers (both locals and foreigners) were sleeping on the airport floor. Good thing we brought a lot of blankets for the kids. Our airports should install or at least provide more benches for their passengers especially for those staying for an early morning flight schedule. It would definitely show their concern to passengers and more making the world know that our hospitality isn't only limited in books.
Good thing we're seated together during our flight to Davao. We arrived safely in Davao on a beautiful Saturday morning. When we arrived home, it seemed like we had not rested for days, so we slept the whole day.
Thank you Lord for the great experience, You gave our family, to visit another wonderful country. For providing safety and guidance in the whole duration of our trip. We are truly grateful for your kindness and we bring back all the praises and glory to You...
