Today, we leave the Philippines. Our flight actually leaves at 1:50am, but with everything closing down in Cebu city, we find ourselves at the airport 5 hours before our flight to Shanghai.
Our busride back to Cebu City was pretty miserable. 3 hours (a lot of it stuck in traffic), in a standing room bus…. Full of cranky people (us included!). At one point, someone brought in a massive Nemo balloon, filling up a large portion of the top of the bus. I thought I was going to suffocate.
At least they played a movie: The Fast and the Furious. I had actually decided never to watch any of those movies, after seeing the first 10 minutes of the first one. Fate had other plans…
The following 2 days will go like this:
Wake up at 8am
At 3pm, board a 3 hour busride to Cebu city.
Grab a taxi to the airport after getting a quick bite to eat.
Our flight to Shanghai leaves at 1:50am
We arrive at Pudong airport at 5:40am
We travel to the hotel we stayed at before leaving for the Philippines and pick up our luggage.
Our flight to Vancouver leaves at 3:55pm
We arrive in Canada at 11:40 am… On the same day…due to time changes.
At 1:25, we depart for Winnipeg and will arrive at about 6pm.
Long story short…
We will be on the go for a good 42 hours…. Sleeping only if our flights allow it.
Goodness, I hope our plane is empty!
