For the past weeks, my life has changed so much. I discovered the inner passion I have inside my heart – to travel. Travel with the person I love.
Looking back, there’s not much to talk about our adventure. But the things that we did together were one of the most memorable experience happened in my life.

I was surprised because I wasn’t expecting him to be home earlier than I expected. He said his arrival will be on Monday (December 19, 2016). I even thought that I will be one surprising him (as told by his cousins). However, that was only part of the plan – to pretend that I’ll be the one making surprises for his homecoming. When in fact, it’s the other way around. Sabotage!
December 21, 2016, Baguio City
This was our first trip together. Basically, as a first-time traveler, we were literally lost in the city. A lot of people were walking and rushing across the street as soon as we stepped out of the bus. Some of the vehicles make the city even busier. We have no idea where’s the location of our hotel. We walked from SM Baguio to the public market (where we asked manong guard the location of the Burnham Suites – our hotel). I thought it will be the end of our long walk, but then again, we crossed the Burnham Park before finally arriving at the hotel. So yeah, that was one of the most tiring yet memorable experiences with him.
Even though we were tired from walking, we still went to the Strawberry Farm that same afternoon.
We picked strawberries (take note: 500PHP = 1 basket) with his friends Carla and Raiden. After the picking session, we decided to go back. But upon heading back to the hotel, there were no taxis available – we waited for almost an hour. Till finally, Raiden asked one of the taxi operators to drive us back to Burnham Suites.
That night, we were absolutely out of energy. We did a little movie marathon, though. But he fell asleep and wasn’t able to finish Lights Out. The funny thing is I kind of discovered he is making weird ZZZ sound while sleeping. Haha!

Our second day! Oh my gosh, I thought our first day was the most tiring day of our trip – I was wrong. The second day was the most tiring one (worth it, though).
First, we went to the bus station to buy tickets (it’s Christmas season during that time) so there’s no need to rush the following day. But then, there were no available trips going to Capas. Though the Victory Liner Bus Station offers trip going back to that place. But again, we have no idea where the F we were going. We asked several people about the location of the terminal and walked almost 1,000 miles, kidding!
To make the story short, we went there for nothing. The line was… ugh, I couldn’t even describe it using my own words. But looking at the bright side; we ate our lunch at Teriyaki Boy, yay!
After our lunch, we decided to go to Mines View Park. But once again, we need to search for a taxi (the struggle of not having your own vehicle, haha!). Good thing, manong driver (Manong Jhonny if I’m not mistaken) offered us to hire him instead so that there’s no need to wait for another taxi for our next destination.
We went to Christmas Village that night. It was a chilly evening, btw. Brrr.
Love is an adventure. You can travel whenever you want to visit the beautiful places on Earth. What’s more exciting than traveling is to be with the person you love. Like a win-win situation, you are traveling while making memorable moments with him.
In our situation, we shouldn’t waste our time because we are in a long distance relationship. Being in a long distance relationship is quite difficult. There’s only a certain time where we can travel together. We couldn’t do it more often because we are not standing and living on the same ground. But in the end, everything will be worth it. When the long wait is over, sadness turns into laughter. Loneliness turns into hugs and kisses.
I never imagined traveling with the person I love will be one of my most memorable trip I had in my entire existence. I will surely cherish these moments forever. It was such an amazing experience and I’m looking forward to our next adventure.
