.. And The Infinite Taste for Travel and Infantile Adventures

Baguio: Rendezvou Point to 2,922 Meters

It was Claire and I’s dream to set foot on the highest but most accessible mountain out there. Living in Manila, the runaway winner for accessibility was non other than the highest mountain of Luzon, the 2nd highest in the Philippines; Mt. Pulag. In actuality, “accessibility” wasn’t that accessible.

It was holy week already, a Wednesday and we still don’t have a ticket going to Baguio, our rendezvous point with our group. It took me almost four hours just to have a ticket.  I started falling in line at around 11pm and ended up getting our ticket at 2:30am but this time the next earliest bus going to Baguio is at 7:30am, Thursday.

It took us 6 hours to reach Baguio city where we took the rest of the day to rest and find ourselves a nice meal. Baguio was dubbed the summer capital of the Philippines since people from different parts of the country flock to Baguio during summer to seek refuge from the scorching summer heat. When we reached Baguio, as expected it was quite packed than normal judging from how many people are falling in line to get their advanced ticket back to Manila (or wherever). This time we were smart enough to get our tickets in advance going back to Manila.

We had a nice dinner courtesy of 50’s Diner. They serve it BIG but their price is cheap. And food tasted good, really really good plus the taste of nostalgia of a decade even my parents never saw.
