It was the first time I joined an organized tour. Thanks to our travel agency client she assisted us in joining their Penagbenga Festival Tour. I am not a fan of organize tours but I gave it a shot to join my officemates. So here’s the PhotoBlog of our tour last February 2012 =)
We left Manila at 11pm and arrived at Baguio City at 6am. Well that was really long! The tour organizers intentionally had a stopover for an hour at Shell in North Luzon Expressway. Another hour of stopover in Pangasinan. Good thing about organized tour is you have a tour guide who talks about the place all the time. In our case our tour guide started talking when we get to the zigzag road. I realize I wanna be a tour guide in my retirement… hmmm??? lol
The Mansion and Wright Park
It was not my first time to step on Baguio thus this is not the first time I saw Wright Park and the Mansion.
Mines View Park
The picture above? I don’t like the idea of using animals for profit. They should be on our homes playing with us and not being exploited for human stomach! So why I have this picture? Again my officemates wanted to have a photo with the St. Bernard so I joined and I found it cute. hahahaha… Though I have a picture it doesn’t mean that I agree with it. In fact I openly rebuked the men who were using this cute dog. I asked them why are you using the dog for profit? He told me that they have a permit and they are being regulated by authorities. And the dog takes a rest from time to time. He added that the reason why they charge high compared to others is that others do not have permits and exploit the dog.
I was really exited to visit the strawberry fields!!! Why??? I LOVE STRAWBERRIES!!!
Looking for Baguio City Hall???
The Loin’s Head
During this time my spirit was really low but I was trying not to show it to my office mates. I tried to enjoy the scenery but my fake smile showed my sorrow. I just said to my self instead of agonizing I had to make the most of my trip. If you wonder whats the problem… I lost my camera =( I lost it while doing a sight seeing at the Penagbenga Festival. There was a kid run on my side where my camera was located. It was late when I knew that my camera was lost. We were already on our way to PMA when I realized it.
