I'm Home! And I Have (LOTS of) Pictures Of My Trip!

Well, I'm home now :) I got back yesterday morning and I'm still so tired! The flights back were OK and surprisingly smooth. I braced myself for lots of turbulence, so I was pretty relieved! I had a stop in Hong Kong and there was a mix-up with the gates, so I ended up walking down from the end of the airport to the beginning like twice! So annoying! But I did get to do some duty-free shopping and I'll post my hauls soon :)

Anyway, here are some pictures of my vacation!

We went to a city  called Davao. It was gorgeous! We stayed at a beautiful hotel called The Waterfront Insular.

There was a man picking fresh coconuts from the hotel grounds!
 
 Unfortunately, the beach wasn't great. But they had a gorgeous swimming pool!
 
How cute are these?

We were there during the Kadayawan festival, which is the festival of thanks and for the harvest.

The whole city was decorated and very festive. We watched the parade, it was so colorful!

And OMG look what I found!!!! I was soo excited!!

Then we headed back to Manila!

We had to go to the Immigration office to extend our visas.

 We went looking for a wholesale bead store in a shopping area called Divisoria. It was an "Experience"

There was a typhoon, which resulted in thunderstorms and rainstorms across the city. It was like this all day and night!

 But it was a gorgeous, unusually bright and clear day when we went to the Sunday Market.
 
So those are my pictures! Obviously not ALL of them, but I don't wanna bore you guys! I can't wait to show you guys the stuff I got. My suitcases were so overweight when I left! I was lucky, though, and didn't have any issues with it. 

How is everyone's weekend going? :)
