Photo Diary: Quick, Spontaneous Getaway to Sagada

How do you define spontaneity? In my context, it was when my relatives decided to go on a trip to Sagada just the day before the 30th of November. We really had no plans, no itinerary, no bookings, etc. We just packed our bags and left early in the morning of November 30.

My uncle drove from Manila to Baguio. From Baguio, we decided it's better to commute since the road to the Mountain Province is steep and unfamiliar to my uncle so we took a bus en route to Bontoc. It was more or less a 5-hour trip from Baguio to Sagada town proper but the view was amaze balls! :)))) Plus, I loved the cold weather!

Our breathtaking view on the way to Sagada.
At the stop over, we tried the local version of yoghurt in the Mountain Province.
When we reached Sagada town proper, we were all very hungry. And what's the first thing a hungry person would do (especially in my case)? FOOD TRIPPPPP!!!

I'm not a fan of coffee but the coffee here actually tastes good. :)

From a pig out adventure, below is our actual adventure - CAVING!

Lumiang Cave - where some of the burial coffins of Indigenous People (IP) in Sagada are found

The weather was really cold but I just have to wear shorts so I'll be more comfortable when doing the caving activity in our next destination.

Sumaguing Cave- we were inside the cave for almost an hour and a half. We survived this caving experience - from climbing the steep, slimy rocks to the rappelling activity and of course the darkness of the cave. :))

There's a lot more to eat at and do in Sagada but we were pressed with time. Hopefully, I could come back again with some friends and do the more challenging caving activity - the 4-hour cave connection experience. :)
