I'm back!!! , just arrived from a 6 day vacation from the province of Marinduque. I was here 18 years ago and I never thought I'll be back again to this place. It was almost a 3 hour drive by car from my place in San Juan City to Dalahican Port in Lucena City. We took the Roro vessel (roll on-roll off), the fare was P260/person and P1900++ freight expenses for the car . Another 3 hour travel on the sea and finally, we set foot on the island of Marinduque at the Balanacan Port. From the port, it took us another 45 minutes to an hour drive and we arrived at our destination, Cawit, Boac, my father's birthplace.

On our return trip home, the travel was much easier and faster, we took the Cawit Port which is just a few blocks away from where we are staying, they had a scheduled trip back to Lucena City, so we had an extra time to spare to say our goodbyes to our relatives.
My family and I really enjoyed our vacation to Marinduque. It was a long and tiring trip but it was all worth it. Too bad, my father isn't here anymore to join us, he was so eager to return and retire back to Marinduque when he had a major stroke and died in 2002. I'm sure wherever he is, he's very much happy that we finally made that trip.
