I love travelling, especially to those beautiful spots here in the Philippines. I’ve been to Pangasinan, Quezon Province, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bataan, La Union, Baguio, and Tagaytay.
One thing that I can’t forget are my trips to Baguio. I’ve been there several times with different companions. I almost memorize the different places there that the tourists visit every time they go there like Burnham park, Mines View, Wright Park, Botanical Garden, Strawberry Farm, Groto and others.
One of my trips to Baguio that I still remember was when I was with my uncle and his family, together with my sister and husband. It happened last January 1, 2011. It was already four in the morning when I woke up, because we will leave at exactly 5 am.
After four hours of travelling, I could feel the cold breeze of the air. At last were there! But the smell of the air, the cold that makes me chill from the first time that I’ve been there seven years ago was not that similar for me now. Then our trip to Baguio started for the whole day, we go to beautiful places there. Because it was their first time there, my husband and I served as their tour guide. We ate our breakfast at KFC in Session Road, I ordered fried chicken, rice, coffee and sundae for desert. From there we started taking up our pictures.
After breakfast we went to Baguio Cathedral, and there they took a lot of pictures, because it was their first time there, they were so excited. With their different poses, anywhere even there were not so beautiful view. Even it was foggy and the views were not that clearly seen in the pictures we still continue taking up our souvenir pictures.
Next place we visited after the cathedral was a garden, that was the Baguio’s Botanical Garden, for me it was more beautiful now compared before. It was more systemize and clean now. The cave that connects Botanical Garden to Mines View Park was more interesting to try now, not like before that...
