Weekend Roadtrip 2017: Highway Scenes and Sceneries

I have been driving since I was 13, thanks to a childhood girlfriend who got herself a boyfriend with a scooter. So when the BF visited her the scooter is all ours-ours, being me and another childhood girlfriend, who happened to be a cousin of the BF. They got married, by the way. Happy ending!  LOL! (Yah guys! If you’re reading this you know who you are, hahahaha!), Scooter transitioned to motorcycle and eventually cars.  I’m always up for long drives and I’m quite confident with my driving skills, but the road to Cateel in Davao Oriental from Dahican, Mati City and from Cateel passing through the towns of Surigao del Sur and Agusan del Sur going home tested my skills to the limits. The long, winding, uphill, downhill and most of the time isolated roads tested my patience. Still, all’s well that ends well!

We made some stops along the way to capture some wonderful (for me, at least) sceneries along the way…

Route: Mati City-Tarragona-Manay-Caraga-Bagangga-Lingig, Tagbina, Barobo, San Francisco, Prosperidad, Sibagat, Bayugan, Butuan City, Buenavista and home Nasipit!

(My husband’s gonna kill me for this. We, my travel buddy-my daughter- and I, took these routes without him knowing..)
