On Father’s Day, make your dad feel like he’s the man by taking him to Cebu’s Transcentral Highway and great outdoors. You don’t have to have a definite plan. Half the fun is letting him sit behind the wheel and steer your family to a trip none of you will ever forget.
“Drive, just drive.” Cheer on his adventurous spirit and have his favorite tracks blast from the car radio. Push down your windows and breathe in the fresh air together. Let the sun stream in and warm your skin. It’s empowering to be trusted. Letting him know that you have faith in wherever he’s leading you in your jaunt–or in life–is the perfect gift that you can give him.
Of course, adding special touches are the ribbons and wrapper of your present to him. A cooler with ice cold beer and soda? Check. Sandwiches and a bundle of the area’s famous sweet corn? Check. Blankets and first aid kit? Check. You just need to bring the essentials and to roll with the punches, didn’t he teach you these? By packing up the things you know he’ll appreciate, you’re showing him that you’ve been learning well, when it comes to being a great provider yourself.
As you settle on a patch of green for your picnic, what better setting is there than Cebu’s sinewy ridges and serene view? The city has much to offer, and traveling to its outskirts with your family can help you give back and deeply connect to the most important man in your life, whose strength is as boundless as the wide, open roads ahead.
