I thought going home to Laguna would be difficult but things were better than I expected. We waited for the bus early because we thought that there would be a lot of people going home. That's what we thought, during the whole trip there were only around 15 passengers riding the bus. We had several seats for ourselves. Then we thought that there might be counterflow problems along the way. The traffic went smoothly. We only had several stops which were not that long. The only problem was the driver. He was very slow. He drives like he was still learning the ropes of driving a bus. We were so slow that buses which were several hours behind us were able to overtake us.
In the end, our travel from Isabela to Laguna took us 15 hours. We got on the bus at 6:30 am and arrived at Pacita around 9pm.
