DIY Cordillera Adventure (Baguio-Banaue-Bontoc-Kalinga-Sagada)

This trip is one of those memorable ones we have. There were a lot of unexpected things that had happened to us along the way. Long bus trips, toploading in jeepneys, the landslides and to trek the Cordillera mountains that we are unfamiliar with while being drenched with rain. Still, it was all worth it!

Again, this is our Do-It-Yourself DIY Cordillera trip. Thanks to all the blogs as my resources, the trip was successful and an achievement to be proud of.

DIY Sagada Travel Guide

Sagada of Mountain Province is now getting a lot more of attention after a Filipino movie featured the jaw-dropping view of Kiltepan. There’s also a lot of package tours for friends and family around Facebook that will make the trip easier and convenient. But how about those who doesn’t want to book to these package tours? How easy to reach Sagada by commuting? Well, it’s as easy as throwing a rock to someone you hate *insert evil face here*. Just kidding, of course it’s not that easy to throw a rock to someone. But going to DIY Sagada trip? Well it is!

DIY Ilocandia Tour

When me and my bf started travelling, we prefer DIY (do it yourself) rather than packages. Why? Simply because we want to manage our own time and we wanted to explore the place on our own. So when we decided to have our Ilocandia tour last year, it made me think if we should get a package and just follow the itinerary that they will provide to you. Since Ilocos region is very far and it would be our first trip where we will be travelling by land, then I almost booked ourselves in one of those travel agencies on facebook.

Then I think again and reviewed the itinerary and said to myself that it is soooo boring. Like you just have to sit on the van the entire tour and wait for the guide to tell you to get out from it and take some photos with the well-known spots. Aside from that, we wanted to surf in La Union and experience the struggle of backpacking. Then that’s where we have decided to have our own itinerary and have our DIY Ilocandia tour.
