Trip to North

September 11, 2015
Travel brings power and love to your Life” 
P.S from the start:
Travelling is an art of knowing yourself within the challenges you’ve encountered.
The adventure, expenses, laughters and sweats  are just a piece of cake if you enjoy a lot.  No matter how hard to bring all your stuffs from day one until the end of the trip, every moment is worth. As long as, you achieve your emotional desire to touch down all the spots you’ve wanted. Plus,  fall in love with a wondrous once in a life time experience is worth to treasure at the end of the day.
It’s been almost two weeks I had my first ever touch down to Northern Luzon. The seven days of extreme adventure were unforgettable. Everything happened for good despite of some circumstances beforehand. There’s always surprising if you didn’t expect anything and that’s how I treasured every utmost challenge, I had. I was wondering also what’s really special for those twinklings. And surely, the places I’d been were AWESOME. The people I’d met made my seven days so AWE-INSPIRING. The momentous experiences were AMAZING. And most of all, the ladies with me were AUDACIOUS to dare some risks and they’re the best travel buddies ever (and looking forward for another trip with them).  At the end, I learnt not to limit myself anymore. I wanted to go far away from where I am. I wanted to fly…
I wanted to fall in love my life… and I did everything for the first time.
Excuses before the trip:
I was doubtful to continue the journey due to some excuses: first, the typhoon “Ineg” hit the places days before our trip and there’re lots of landslide happened in the area, then I wasn’t sure if the place was safe or not; second, the original number of travelers would be nine but it became four; lastly, I couldn’t barely had a guts to leave my mom for seven days for the first time.
However, everything ensued in a right way in God’s grace.

 I’m a little bit ashamed to tell you something, but it’s kinda made me proud to share my first trip.
Everything happened was definitely my (twelve) FIRST TIMEs.

4th- First time… to try spelunking.

9th- First time… to have a long hours of land trip.
10th- First time… to know and amazed the life of Marcos and Cordillerans.
