Uphill climb

Cameo-041514_01

These pictures were taken last Saturday on a road trip to Tagaytay with the boyfie and his old (my new) friends.

The trip was planned on the side of a business meeting. Though it was cancelled last-minute and the weather initially didn’t seem to cooperate, we still decided to push through.

Needless to say, we didn’t regret that we did.

Besides taking in scenic trails, we were able to breathe the fresh air that only surfaces once one leaves the city.

Beyond walls and restrictions, skies expand wider and further than any skyline could.

I was convinced in the power of travel to deepen friendships.

Though we knew the trip was short and the experience temporary, we were reminded of our own dreams and wishes. (The property development we toured has a perpetual Christmas theme.)

The afternoon brought to light what we held as definite horizons.

Who would have thought that we once again glimpsed what we considered dormant?

Sure, most of the trip was sugar-coated.

And we came “back to reality” once we returned to Manila.

But as I have always said, dreams and fantasies – once settled into habits – are not less valid.

If for anything, travel and recollection only make them more real.
