  • Exploring Mines View Park At Baguio With Kala And Karin

    The day after visiting The Strawberry Farm, we were off to an early start to visit Mine's View Park. It had been rainy the day before so we were hoping that the fog would lift up so we could see a clear view and take good pictures. Fortunately, there was only a slight drizzle when we traveled from the hotel.

    We got there before 8AM and we thought that we would have to wait until after 8AM to get inside the park but we were told that we could already go inside. This made us quite happy as we could explore the place without any other visitors around.

    Of course, the first thing to do was fo ...

  • Twelve Hours In Baguio

    It was January 2017 and I yearned to spend one day – even just a few hours – of quality time with friends and fellow travel enthusiasts in a Facebook® group chat. We planned to spend two days and a night on a beach in an island about 30 to 45 minutes from port via a sea vessel. Just as with some plans, it did not go accordingly. The volatile weather came with winds that in turn spawned fierce waves, causing motorboat operators to observe caution and stay put. We needed another plan.

    Hency Joyce Gamara had much enthusiasm in pushing for a leisurely trip to happen. On January 1, she came ...

  • 10 Hours In Baguio

    Finally, I had mustered all my remaining energy to write this post, which is not that entertaining in the first place. Before the formal classes started this semester, I went to Baguio City and tried to compress all possible spots to go to in less than a day. We were supposed to ride the Victory Liner but unfortunately, all trips were fully booked that day so we had to find a different bus line. We rode the Joy Bus along EDSA Cubao. The fare was a little bit higher compared to Victory Liner but the travel was comfortable so it might be worth it (thankful for the big leg room).

    We left Manil ...
