From the time I started to love having succulents at home, I never stopped having them. There’s this itch that every time I acquire one succulent after another – the desire is insatiable. I therefore, am a succulent addict.
Last Sunday, my day off and “me” time, I decided to visit the nearby town of Sto. Domingo. Roughly, it took me only 20 plus minutes or so, hitched on my friend’s motorcycle. The air was breezy, sun is not too hot, it was the perfect weather and it was a perfect ride – where you can smell the fresh air, mesmerized by the vast green farms, cows grazing and the beautiful Mayon as the background.
I first visited the Sto. Domingo church, said a little prayer, then I headed to the supermarket, plaza, and finally the beach!
Not only for plants and my love for succulents and nature, I hope the following reasons might make your trip interesting and worthwhile in Santo Domingo, Albay.
Such a beauty and a perfect sight especially when you’re just driving a motorcycle. It’s God’s way of telling you that He’s just everywhere.
