It was a turbulent flight, both during take off and landing time. I held on to my armrest when we were on ascent and descent, as I was having a very different feeling. I just closed my eyes, pumped up the volume on my iPod, and thought about happy moments.

Nonetheless, when we were already up above the clouds, the sunlight beamed on me as I rest my head by the window. Seat 14A. I felt better, though still stressed. I reached for my bag with potato chips and munched my way throughout the flight, taking time to chit chat with my travel mates and to also read through the in-flight magazine. After 40-minutes, we were about to land. I looked outside and saw a group of islands that are so surreal. A sight that is picture perfect. I believe it was already the Calamianes Group of Islands, and just the sight of it made me though about how beautiful our trip will be in the coming days.

After arrival at Francisco B. Reyes Domestic Airport, we went outside and looked for our shuttle, a white 12-seater van driven by Mang Jimmy. It was another 45-minute ride to the town of Coron, some parts were bumpy, some were on paved roads, and most of us were busy chatting about that recent plane experience.
