From Ronzone Highland Back To Lowland

Intro:
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR WARM NEW YEAR WISHES. HERE’S WISHING YOU HAPPINESS AND JOY IN THE DAYS AHEAD! AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!!!

Ola amigas y amigos, Feliz Año Nuevo tardía! Cómo es usted or kumustamos ginamos o bagoong con pinitpit na bawang. Pagpasensiyahan niyo si lola niyo’t medyo hilo pa galing sa biyahe. Haay, I wanted to write an update since yesterday. I know there was more I wanted to write, but my mind just went blank (kuno). I think highland air is toxic for my “brain” kaya no wonder lalo akong na windang. So I’ll just write nalang whatever comes out of my mind and fingertips, hokay?

Before we left last Dec. 27, I planned to write something short about our vacation para at least hindi kayo magtaka kong bakit tahimik dito sa bahay ko. Unfortunately, naubos ang time ko sa pag-impake ng aming mga gamit kaya hindi ko na ito nakuhang gawin. Hindi niyo lang alam na kapag si lola niyo ang bumabiyahe…halos buong gamit ang bitbit. Kaya laging inaabot ng siyam-siyam sa kakapili, kakaisip, kakatingin, kakacheck at kakapalit nang di niya type dalhin. In short, sa sobrang kaartehan…siya ay natabunan ng mga abobot na sa bandang huli ay di rin naman pala nagagamit.

Well anyway, let me tell you where we’ve been. The diva of all divas Jing invited us to spend a few days at their vacation home in Ronzone, Italy.

Muntik pa kamong hindi matuloy dahil halos lahat kami dito ay tinamaan ng linshyak na flu. Sa tulong ng antibiotic at kong anek-anek pang gamot na aming nilunok, medyo bumuti ang aming pakiramdan. Medyo bingi nga lang ako at si Papa G. naman ay ngungo at kahol ng kahol the whole time. Can you imagine how it was while we were on our way to South Tyrol? Let me give you a sample scenario, like fafa G. asked me something. Papa G: Tinawagan mo ba sila ni Jing na on the way na tayo (ubo ubo ubo)? Sagot ko: Ano kamo ang sabi mooo? Inulit niya ang tanong niya pero pasigaw na: Sinabi kong blah blah blah! Sabi ko naman: Ay aba, huwag mo akong sigawan dahil hindi ako bingi noh! Sagot naman niya: Di ba’t sabi mo hindi ka ngayon (ubo ubo ubo ubo) masyodong nakakarinig? Me: Oo nga pero sobrang lakas naman sigaw mo…parang bulyaw ang dating. Papa G: Asus, bingi na sensitibo pa.

969.50 kilometers din ang dinanrayb namin at gabi na kami ng dumating dahil napadalas ang breaktime sa ka ji-jingle ni mader. We arrived in Bozen or Bolzano around 5:30 P.M and from there kailangan pa naming umakyat. I said akyat dahil napaka steep ng kalsada at tinalo pa nito ang zigzag road ng Baguio City. The more we get higher (Ronzone altitude: 3923 feet) the more naman akong naging bingi and Gillian started throwing up. Buti nalang at may discomfort bag kaming dala (nakaw ko pa yon sa Lufthansa 2 yrs. ago) orelse amoy asim na ang buong sasakyan. Finally, after the ascent from 262m to 1195m altitude, we get in sight of Jing and Charle’s place. What a relief! Akala ko papunta na kaming langit dahil it feels like ages driving the whole 24 kilometers from Bolzano up to Ronzone.

We went to Verona the next day…

The next day, si Kathleen naman ang pinagbigyan namin sa gusto niyang mag ski.

Habang kami ni Jing ay nagpictorial muna…

at siyempre nagpakuha din ako ng solo.

After the pictorial, we went up to highest part of the “ski piste”, but of course we took the ski lift at doon piktyuran din ulit.

The ski lift ride was great but nakakalula and as we reached the top, Charles suggested we walk down the hill. More than one hour din ang lakad namin. Si lola niyo na wala ng ginawa sa bahay kundi ang maupo sa harap pc ay napasabak sa kadilakad, kaya hanggang ngayon ay damang-dama ko pa ang sakit ng aking mga joints sa legs.

Our vacation was short but full of adventures and fun. From here, I would like to thank Jing and Charles for inviting us to join them in Ronzone. It was indeed an unforgettable vacation!

  • Hello Beng!

    Nakabalik na pala si lola galing sa lakwatsa. :grin

    Mukhang masaya bakasyon niyo a. Buti naman at nakapag-break ka kahit short lang, at least nag-enjoy ka, di ba?

    Happy New Year uli lola! :bigsmile

  • Ate Beng, ang lamig dyan ah? Yukong sumama dyan, pero dahil di pa ako nakakita ng ice up close and personal, bitibitin mo ako next time.

    Looks like you all had the fun. Next time, itemize mo na ang dadalhin mo, hahaha.

    Happy New Year again.

  • Mutti yung mukha ko mukhang manas at windang kakapuyat, wala pang emyas.
    Halos di tayo magkasya sa frame.
    We´re back in Erfurt na … sakit ng mga muscles ko kaka diskarga ng mga gamit. Korak ka jan mutti … sakit pa rin mga joints and thighs ko.

    Next time bitbitn natin si Thekyang !!!

  • Wowee! You look great even with you just recovering. Walang bola. With you and your kids, nakaka-enganyo to think of having another one. Great to see you having RnR with the family.
