I terribly miss Baguio’s cold, gloomy weather. Last time I was there was last April 2010 when I participated at a trail run event organized by The North Face. I was with my favorite trail running buddies. I was also able to meet with a friend who now resides in Baguio and currently running his own bar with his brother – former football playmates of mine. My friend took me to Oh My Gulay, a restaurant that serves vegetarian meals amidst a cozy setting of plants and old furnitures.
Well, I’ve always had fond memories of Baguio. Me and my mom used to go there a lot back when we were monitoring the renovation of our property there. We never lived in it. It was given to my dad as payment for his services as a financial adviser or something and we sold it during hard times. Since I was not into backpacking back then, I never had the chance to roam alone and explore it for myself. Even when I got older, Baguio was always a destination with friends.
Now I want to go back to Baguio and embark on a solo adventure. I don’t think I’d get lonely because Baguio’s awfully crowded lately.
I also want to check out Bencab Museum which spiked my curiosity when my friend found this painting of a woman who looks eerily a lot like me and posted it on his Facebook and tagged me. I hope the painting’s still there when I drop by.
I wish I can go this weekend but I really can’t. For now, I am sharing you my itinerary. Perhaps, you would want to try this as well. Happy Traveling!
