Banaue-Sagada Trip: Getting There


And this is why I am hopelessly fat.

Even before we hit the road, I am already devouring our snacks for the trip.


royce chocolatesAt 10:15pm, we arrive at Frances’ house and snack on a box of Royce Chocolates.
I snack, they watch.


We leave at 10:40pm, get comfortable in the van, chat, nap and stop over for food.

These guys even have their own Coleman of beer.

The sky is clear, the night breeze is cool, and my favorite chill out music is playing in the background.

Really, I can stay here all night.
