tuesday travels: i heart baguio!

The view in front of The Mansion

Baguio is probably one my most favorite places here in the Philippines, I have only been there once + I fell head-over-heels in love with it. It will really be ideal if I live there. I love the weather, I love the people, + most of all I love the veggies + the strawberries! ;)

I went there, together with my teammate December of 2006, we’ve stayed for 2 days if I remember it clearly. We did not get the chance to see most of the place, though, as it was raining a lot most days  (there was actually a typhoon around that time!). It was really freezing cold, but I just love the weather! It is perfect for just lazily chatting with your good friends + catching up on the latest buzz. + most of all, the weather is just perfect to whet once appetite and go out + sample what Baguio cuisine has to offer. Now, no amount of rain can stop us from going out + eating!  We had our first meal at those eateries near Session Road which sells barbeques!

We’ve also managed to visit SM Baguio + go to the market to buy some souvenirs + stuffs. We also did not forget to swing by the series of Ukay-ukay stores in downtown. I was able to buy a knitted, turtleneck long-sleeved top + a purple jacket (or is it a windbreaker) for Jared’s dad. We also stopped by grotto + the butterfly farm, + bought some knitted stuffs from Mine’s View Park, too!

If given the chance, I’d definitely love to go back there. I want to go to the Strawberry Farm + visit the place that sells those yummy Ube jams, too! Or maybe we can venture farther + pay a visit to Sagada as well (oh well, that probably has to be in a separate post altogether!)

    1. i enjoy joining your travel meme, i only wish i travel a lot so i’d have more interesting stuffs to share :)

  2. I’ve been to Baguio twice, for a youth assembly and GSP camping in high school but like you I fell in love as soon as we entered the city proper. If it’s just me, I’d rather live there away from Manila pollution.
