    #BaeTravels: Banaue Trip Day 3

    Hi, guys! I know I am already so behind on my Banaue blog posts, so let me make it up to you by writing this 3rd volume out of the 5. We spent five days in Banaue, so naturally, I would be writing 5 blog posts as well. On our third day, we woke up to the sun shining brightly at us, we had a hearty breakfast (mom’s choice), and then we went to Sagada for a quick trip. Ready for Day 3? Let’s go!

    #BaeTravels: Banaue Trip Day 2

    So you’ve finally reached Day 2 of our Banaue trip. Well, good for you. But hang in there as I have more blog posts to follow. On Day 2, we woke up as early as 6:29 am. I was the last one to get down from the hut and they said that it was freezing outside so I wrapped myself in layers of jacket, bonnet, and hand gloves before getting out of the hut. True to their word, it was freezing cold.

    #BaeTravels: Banaue Trip Day 1

    Hi, guys! I’m finally writing about our recent Banaue-Sagada trip, and I’m so excited because I have so much to share with you all! I’m gonna do a short disclaimer here and warn you that this is not my typical blog post wherein I take Instagrammable pictures and get so nitty-gritty with the layout and chronological order. What you’re about to see are just random shots I took (enhanced with VSCO app, of course) since I want to show you how we naturally spent our days sans the curated images. All in all, we spent 5 days in the North. We left even before dawn on Tuesday and went home…

    Bae Takes Banaue | Day 2, Part 2

    For my work, I was assigned to work on travel articles that focus on Europe. Of course, Wild Spirit immediately came to my mind. I may or may not have referred to it several times while writing. Anyway, writing all about travels, of course, I couldn’t help but yearn of traveling myself so I made a spontaneous decision to finally blog about my trip to Banaue. This is honestly starting to feel like a blog series as it’s clearly taking me forever to finish blogging about our 3 days there. Anyway, let’s have a recap on my last Banaue blog post. The last thing I mentioned was going to Sagada and how…

    Bae Takes Banaue | Day 2, Part 1

    Our day 2 was too long and we did so much (or maybe I just took a lot of photos?) so I will be chopping this blog post into two parts to give justice to our trip’s 2nd day.  On our second day in Banaue, I was already awake by 6:07 AM to take photos of the sunrise. I was the first one up and everyone else was having a good slumber.. because why not when you’re in a really cozy hotel up in the mountains?! My photos do not give justice to how breathtaking the sunrise looked. I can still remember how it felt – it was so cold…

    Bae Takes Banaue | Day 1

    As promised, my family and I went to Banaue over the weekend and despite just my 2nd time to go there, the trip seemed shorter. Okay, well, I was asleep majority of the time, to be fair. It seemed only like yesterday when I first took a glimpse of our famous rice terraces in flesh. Nothing much changed with the place except it was less cold. Nevertheless, it was still every inch beautiful. Let me take you back to that weekend and share with you how we spent our first day. Come this way! 🙂
