Nostalgia #4: My First International Travel Experience


I felt the thrill in my first international travel. I felt nervous because I was imagining bad things in my mind. I have asked myself what will happen to me if there's going to be a plane crash? Gosh!! It was an awful thought..tsk..tsk.

Anyways, I haven't even imagined that in my entire life, I can experience to travel especially outside of my own country. Honestly, I am afraid to travel alone. I remember when I left my home to visit my sister who stays at Davao City, I need to ask my mom to bring me there. I was afraid to take a bus and to go in unfamiliar places. I am afraid to get lost.

But, when my dear one invited me to go visit him at his place sometime on January 20, 2007, I was so very excited. The day of my travel, I felt so tired, especially when I was lining up on queue in the immigration window for passport stamp. God!! The lady attendant asked me some supporting documents. What I brought that time was my luggage, passport and money. The departure time was 8:00 in the evening. I phoned my boss at 7:30 in the evening and he advised me to look for someone to help me out. I phoned my dear one and informed him about it. I felt too disappointed that time. I was thinking to go back in my place if the immigration won’t allow me to travel outside the country. But, I still found ways; I went to the security information and asked for his advice. He brought me to other lady attendant and she advised me what to do. I completed quickly my immigration form and changes some details. At the same time I felt very nervous; I can feel my muscles trembling At last, exactly 8:00 0’clock in the evening they allowed me to board the plane.

Thank God! I had a very safe and sound journey. Had the immigration denied me, I have no sweet memories to share with you all, like these pictures below:

We stopped in this bridge for a single shot. I love the scenery in this picture. The peaceful river and the palace of the empire king.
Brrrrrr....I was supposed to be inside the hotel, but I had to go out just to take a picture in this very cold foggy weather, at Genting Highlands.
Beautiful and attractive lights inside the Genting Highlands
I dont want to fly..heheh..I only raised my hands to tell you that this place is beautiful!!

Outside the palace. Before, I only seen this in videoke background. In this photo, I stood in front of this kingdom. I felt like I am the Queen of the World! LOL!

This is the whole story of my first international journey. My dear told me, I am brave!! do you believe that? I hope so.

Thank you so much for reading A Maiden's Testimony.
