We started 2017 with one big adventure, a trip that was in my head for years. I grew up in a family that was not inclined to take the road less traveled when it comes to trips and it was only after I got married that I started exploring the off beaten paths.
Cue in my kids who brought me back to the usual tourist itineraries, "easy" destinations for families with kids and hotels that offer amenities that make your visit more comfortable and convenient. Then I realized that I was bored and wanted to see more than the usual tourist traps.

When I started to follow my heart and splurged into my wanderlust, I have learned to travel alone. I can't just wait for the world to be ready. If I want to go places, I have to do it now even if it means I have to do it on my own. But during the course of my daring gest, I met a lot of people who have the same passion as I have and they became my travel companions, and later on my friends.

Sagada has been in my bucket list, probably after watching the movie That Thing Called Tadhana. It is not only a destination ...
