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!

I didn’t know that my The Manila Bae blog post would have a second volume. But since I don’t have a specific title for this blog post, I used The Manila Bae again. I hope you don’t mind. We did explore Manila. It’s just difficult to think of a particular title when we went to so many different places.

Anyway, Jec and I went on another #walkathon date. Why do I refer to it as that, you may ask. Well, for the simple reason that we literally walk the entire day until our feet hurt or we have nothing else to do or it starts raining and we have to head home or it’s getting dark, which makes it hard to commute. Any of those are valid reasons to call it a day. Anyway, a few hours of walking and taking photos are so worth it if you know the right (and nice) spots to visit.

I woke up this morning dreading the day ahead. I’ve never been particularly fond of Monday, but it was somehow harder for me to get up because I’ve been MIA from work for weeks because of my recent dengue so that somehow meant that I needed to start from scratch and tap the writer in me. Fortunately for me, work is light today, so I don’t have to go on full-blown writer mode. My tasks are enough to put me back on track.

Having spent the last few days in the hospital and at home made me crave for an adventure again. The last time that I was out and about was when Jec and I went to Intramuros and Escolta, a few days before I got sick, and admittedly, I’m starting to get sick with malls because now I only need them for personal errands and nothing more. I’d rather go elsewhere than spend a day in a mall, case in point. I mentioned to Jec that I wanted to do something next weekend that would bring me some adrenaline rush since I’m ready to be pumped up again. I remembered my photos from Escolta and I’ve been meaning to make a photo dump here in my blog, so that’s what I’ll be doing now until the weekend arrives again.

It’s a bit chilly. It’s way colder than your average day in Manila, my stomach is grumbling from hunger, and it’s been drizzling nonstop since this morning, but I don’t mind. I actually like it. Cold weather always lifts my mood, especially when it stays chill all day so there’s one less reason for me to be grumpy from the Manila heat.

Anyway, enough of this talk. Let me take you back to July 23 on a warm Saturday when Jec and I shed pounds from walking some of the famous streets of Manila.

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 we made a lot of stops along the way, so now let’s talk about what we did in Sagada and the things I discovered.

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 and you could see just the first ray of sunshine peeking into the day. The mountains and the rice terraces were covered with fog and I even caught myself asking if anyone would dare take a dip in the pool beside our room – it must be freaking cold! It was so quiet but not in an eerie way. In fact, the cold gave some sense of warmth and comfort and a promise of a good day. And a good day it was! ?
