Fly High: From Manila to Mindanao
My mom told me that my first ever plane flight was when I was just 6 months old. That was the time my parents decided to leave the province and settle in Manila. Since then, flying in a plane from Manila to General Santos or Davao has always been an interesting experience. I remember myself being the curious little girl, gently seated in this huge chair sitting for an hour and 45 minutes before touchdown with the seat belt as my toy. And how could I forget that infamous sweet candy ball given by a lovely stewardess that unfortunately to be blamed for breaking my little innocent tooth! That jawbreaker!!! I therefore realized as I grew, plane flights can have their own scary moments.

When you are flying 30000 ft above the ground, inevitably the ride can sometimes get a bit bumpy, especially when the weather isn't that cooperative and turbulence follows. I once had a plane trip scheduled during monsoon season, and had to bear a nasty flight from General Santos to Manila via Cebu Pacific. God knows how hard I held on to my seat, desperately wishing I could just fall into deep slumber. Interestingly since then, I became a much braver passenger!

Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 islands. Seeing these beautiful islands from your plane seat is a fantastic way to appreciate their beauty.
