Roadtrip: Quirino Daytrip! (3.26.2016)

We have arrived at Quirino probably past lunch time. I remembered we had breakfast at Chowking Santiago so my estimate is probably right. We ate lunch when we reached our house but an hour or two later, we are on the road again to Maddela. They recommended Governor’s Rapids but after a long dizzying trip we’ve…

Roadtrip: Tarlac Daytrip! (3.25.2016)

We were told by our relatives (mother side) that our Mamang (Grandma) wanted to see us. So just in time for the Holy Week, we decided to visit her at Tarlac. Our final ETD is evening of Thursday and will be coming home by Sunday morning. With that in mind, we have two days to go…

The Batangas-Tagaytay Roadtrip (2015) Part 3

We started our journey right after breakfast and checked out. We navigated towards Taal which is hailed as Vigan of the South. We had high hopes for the so called ancestral houses but said buildings were a bit sparse and the moniker is just a bit exaggerated. It is clean though. For a town center…

The Batangas-Tagaytay Roadtrip (2015) Part 2

La Chevrerie We are all in awe at the villa. The place is just comfortably huge you can fit like 7-10 people easy. There are tons of beds and the sofas are huge. There are also two baths, large TVs on both floors and an overlooking balcony. Even the table is good for hosting a…

The Batangas-Tagaytay Roadtrip (2015) Part 1

Whaaaaaat!! I’m posting an old roadtrip?? Yes way! So I won a contest last year from Nailaholics: a one night stay in an exclusive resort at La Chevrerie. It was supposed to be for 2 people only but I thought I should bring the family along instead. Upon conversation with the management of the hotel,…

The Cordillera Road Trip: EP15: Alapos Inn

It was the only inn that would take us for reservation 2 months before Holy Week and I am more than glad in getting anything at all. A night for 4-5 people will cost you 1000 pesos. We got a double deck and a larger bed fit for four. Initially our reservation entitles us to…

The Cordillera Road Trip: EP14: Church of Saint Mary the Virgin

It’s still early to retire for the day so we went to the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin. It’s a good place to tone down the roughness of the caving earlier. We looked awfully muddy but thought that being a tourist is an excuse 😀 Imagine the campfires here: While we were walking around,…

The Cordillera Road Trip: EP12: The Sagada Tour

We are provided one guide to take us for the rest of the day. I can say that 500 is enough for 4 people who are only up for a day in Sagada. First stop was Sugong Hanging Coffins Viewpoint: Our tour only allows us the view and if you squint a little, yes you…
