|Excuse my morning face here.|
Hello everyone! I'm back from my trip in Mountain Province and here's the map for your reference:
My main destination is Sagada and our first stop was Benguet! I was prepared for some thick clothes because the weather is more or less 10 degrees! We left Quezon City around 10PM for long drive. The last time I had a long drive was in my Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte trips that are also located in North Luzon!

I uploaded some of the photos on my facebook, twitter and instagram for some updates for my family and friends (if we are following each other you already saw the photos). I also received some requests to update my blog from my trip, so here you go friends! :)
I believe this message is a "welcome message"
I traveled with Carissa of IslandTrotters.com we were both excited for this trip and we can't describe how it feels.
We had our breakfast somewhere in Benguet before our few more hours drive going to Sagada. Look at the fog!
Promise "the cold never bothered me anyway..."
Carissa was not prepared when it comes to proper clothes, maybe because she was too excited. So, we decided to check some of the stores near the restaurant. She bought beanie and jacket!
We also bought some key chains for our friends and family.
The highlight of this stop was to see the famous Benguet Rice Terraces that we always see in our history books when we were grade school. However, we can't see it as a whole so I decided to take a photo with this kiddo.
This is how Rice Terraces looks like if the season is summer, I guess.

The Banaue Rice Terraces (Filipino: Hagdan-hagdang Palayan ng Banawe) are 2,000-year-old terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao in the Philippines by ancestors of the indigenous people. The Rice Terraces are commonly referred to by Filipinos as the "Eighth Wonder of the World". It is commonly thought that the terraces were built with minimal equipment, largely by hand. The terraces are located approximately 1500 metres (5000 ft) above sea level. They are fed by an ancient irrigation system from the rainforests above the terraces. It is said that if the steps were put end to end, it would encircle half the globe. (source)
This is the
best photo I can get.
The reasons why I choose Sagada is still on draft. I can't wait to share my adventures with you friends!
How was your weekend guys?
Have a great day everyone!
