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.

Wang-Od: The Last Kalinga Tattoo Artist

There were so many things that happened to us on our way to Buscalan village to get a traditional tattoo from Wang-Od. There were times where I told Neil that we should head back to Bontoc instead and just forget about it but then decided to pursue with the plan the next minute. It was a very unexpected trip and had to hike steep mountains of Cordillera just to reach the village due to landslide. However, I think everything was worth it and something to be proud of after all.
