Not all my out-of-town trips were done in the Turista Trails haste (booking 2-3 days prior to the desired date) like I was trying to escape from a metro-based monster. There were some, after browsing a few folders on my laptop, that reminded me how distinct two places could be -- Metro Manila, my home base and anywhere away from it.
Now that I'm conveniently working from home as my employer and I agreed on the arrangement, I'm no longer suffering from the draining gap that resulted from the vast enclave between my weekday grind and weekend rest. Working so hard since college probably took a toll on me.

This most recent trip was one of those out-of-town getaways that I booked weeks before just so I could feel the bed behind me, wake up in the morning with sunshine on my face or stare at a foliage and find some redeeming value from doing so. Clearly I was suffering from burnout.
I remember taking pictures but only because I loved what I saw and wanted to use them as possible wallpaper on my computer. In retrospect, I did not expect them to land here as shown below:
