Photo Diary: Mushroom Travels to Aklan

Over the Holy Week, Hubby and I travelled to Aklan with our two brothers, my mother-in-law, and our four-year-old nephew  Dmitry, or Mushroom as he is lovingly called by our family.  It was Mushroom’s first time to ‘ride a big white boat’ aptly called St. Ignatius of Loyola (the patron saint of Ateneo where Hubby and I studied). It was also Dmitry’s first big adventure (i.e. long distance travel) so I’ve documented the trip for his parents.  But I’m sure you’ll enjoy his Photo Diary, too.

Note:  2GO’s St. Ignatius of Loyola leaves Batangas port at 9pm every night, and arrives in Caticlan Jetty Port at  6am the next day.

If your child is bored and in need of a little entertainment,  a little photo session will do the trick.

When we arrived in Aslum (my hometown in Ibajay, Aklan) the next day,  we just rested a little before walking to the beach. Mush was the happiest among all of us, I think.
