Philippines Road Trip: Part 1
So last weekend, I got to go on a two day roadtrip with my cousins, aunt, and mom. We traveled up to Sagada to spend the night and these are some photos taken along the way. There we are, getting ready to leave haha. We're all so fresh faced since we got up around 5 to get ready.
I'll admit, most of the ride I spent with my head out the window, gaping in awe at the spectacular mountains we were driving through. Its just stunning how beautiful it is here!
I decided to try a shorts+tights combo for the trip, and I'm surprised by how much I ended up liking the outfit. I've never really liked this style on me because I felt my legs were too short to pull it off. Guess third times the charm though.
I had to take a snap shot of the sticker on the back of our van. Haha, Igorot is the tribe my mother is from, thus, the tribe I'm from. Just a small part of my heritage that I'm proud about. Did you know we're ex headhunters? Yeah, that's what I use to threaten my dates with if I get upset ;)
We passed through Bontoc, and they have these awesome tricycles along with jeepneys that are used for transportation. Sadly, there aren't any in Baguio, so I was dying to take a ride in them. But it was just a quick pit stop, so I just took a picture instead. Next time!
Haha, so these are a few of my cousins. The goofy one above is Marlon. He's a musician, plays drums, guitar, bass, and almost anything else. Is it any surprise he's in a band?
The guy above is JR. We're always being reminded about how when I was 4 and visited, we'd instantly bonded. Seriously, I think I dragged that boy everywhere. Haha, I was a bold child when I was little. I often think back to then, when the language barrier meant nothing. I know it can still be like that, but it's not as easy to overcome now that we're older. I miss it though.
And this cutie would be Albert. He's 6, and he has the most adorable laugh. I love listening to him giggle over every little thing.
Finally, this would be the view coming outside from one of the caves we visited in Sagada. They have what's called Hanging Coffins, and you should seriously Google it. They're so cool to see!
I have a ton more pictures, but I tried condensing the first day into these photos. By the end, my camera was dying anyway. Day 2 will be posted soon!
