An odd house along the highway in Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte

It was a serendipitous moment. I was behind the driver of the motorcycle and we were passing through the main highway of Kapatagan in Lanao del Norte enroute to Cathedral Falls. out of the corner of my eye, this odd looking structure, standing in the middle of an open lot fenced with concrete blocks, caught my attention. I had to tell the driver, with excitement, to stop and go back.

Once we were at the front of the lot, I was just smiling, enjoying the vista of a beautiful but unconventional house, the form of an eight. Beautiful. Interesting was what I can only say.

That’s why I so love travel. There are just moments that surprises you. The unexpected and the odd making an impression and it is seared into your memory forever. A great A-HA! moment.

Have you also experienced discovering something that surprised you as well? 🙂
