Banaue-Batad-Sagada in Four Days

I just got back Monday morning from a four day trekking trip up Northern Philippines with my friends from my backpacking group - ECOF. The're mostly close friends of mine with common interest for exploring the entire Philippine archipelago.

I fell in love with the town of Sagada which offers a balance between tourism development and nature preservation. I loved trekking along the rice terraces in Batad - gruelling as it was because everything seemed to be a few stairs away.

I will share some travel information, just need to gather my thoughts for a while because I've been experiencing some meltdown - two days in a row! Weird, because I only have two predominant emotions - either I'm happy or angry. Lately, I've been feeling sad, trap where I am. I'm too young and too single to feel this way. No need to cheer me up or say anything encouraging. I just need to figure something out or maybe I need to relocate.

We met some really nice people - Ifugaos, locals from Sagada, a talkative and friendly Belgian and an even more talkative Irish and another more talkative Scottish. Hehehe! I also noticed that the locals over there speak a of English, plus the weather's really cold so it was like not being in the Philippines for four days. I also have a lot of pictures to share but I'll upload it some other time. For the mean time, I would like to show you some pics from my friend Jules' camera.
