Enraptured Reality

Phantasm. Bewilderment. Clairvoyance.

Closer to Nature

Leave a comment

During the Holy Week vacation, I’ve had a quick bonding with nature without going too far from where I live.

On Holy Thursday, we went to Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban, Quezon for our Visita Iglesia. We left Cavite at around 3:30AM, and we reached Kamay ni Hesus at around 7AM. It was already a long line of devotees and Catholic visitors all the way up to the giant image of “The Resurrection.”

More and more people were coming to visit this blessed place.

Even if the sun was high, it didn’t stop the devotees to make a little sacrifice for Holy Thursday.

It was a tiring climb, but it was very much fulfilling.

 

We went home right after.

The next day, Good Friday, we’ve had our Station of the Cross at St. Jerome Emiliani Church near Alabang Town Center.

We then decided to have a quick road trip along Las Pinas to Cavitex all the way to Ternate, Cavite. We reached Kaybiang Tunnel, the boundary of Ternate, Cavite and Nasugbu, Batangas.

Yep! It’s an active road!

There are rocks on the side where you can climb to reach the top of the tunnel and have a good view of the place, with all the greens around.

We also reached Caylabne Bay Resort, though we didn’t actually get into the resort itself.

It was a great joyride, being this close to nature, embracing its beauty. City life is nice, but nothing compares to the life in the countryside.
