Here’s the part one for our Baguio vacation if you haven’t read it yet. Our 2nd day was full of adventure that the first post would be too long if I include them all.
MINES VIEW PARK
Our next stop was Mines View Park. It was peak season when we got there so the traffic was taking too long. My brother decided to walk ahead to stand in line to buy the famous ube jam, which is so yummy btw! As expected, the park was full-packed. We just took some photos, saw the view and left because it was raining and we don’t have any umbrella. We still had a great time, though.
These plants and flowers are so pretty. Wanted to buy one but it’s hard to travel with it. I ended up having one here in Iloilo My aunt gave a small pot of succulent to me.
THE COLORS OF STOBOSA
Saw this on the way to Benguet’s La Trinidad. The colorful houses were sitting on top of a hill. The photo didn’t give justice but I swear there more houses and colors that it looked like a painting from afar. There’s a hanging bridge there too. Wish we stopped for awhile to take some photos but the traffic was unreal. Still, it was such a pleasure to look at.
I have never seen these many strawberries! I wasn’t a fan of strawberries before but Benguet’s strawberry changed my mind. There wasn’t a hint of sourness at all, unlike the ones I’ve tried at the grocery store. We picked some strawberries and put them in our little basket.
The wind was cold but it the sun was so hot that time so we tried homemade strawberry ice cream! It has some bits of strawberries in it.
It took several steps to get here to the top. My brother decided to climb from the bottom while my mom and I opted for the shortcut lol. We were already tired from roaming around (ugh, excuses ) We bought candles and flowers from a local kid who sells them and offered it to Our Lady of Lourdes.
Our trip to Baguio was very memorable. The touristy spots were beautiful but I hope the next time I’ll go here, I’ll visit cafes, hike a little, and sleep under the stars. Now that’s what I call an adventure.
