Baguio Trip with Family and Churchmates

Last year, we planned to be in Baguio for the Holy Week with our family not just to be together but also to attend the Luzon Grace Youth Conference (LGYC). I am thankful that everything went according to plan. On March 28, 2015 the reunion we were all waiting for finally happened when our parents and siblings arrived. The last time we were complete was back in October 2013.

Meet my family: Beb, Nate, Me, Nanay, Tatay, Jeriel & Ashiel

We were in Baguio from April 1-5, 2015. It was a great time to be complete with your family and be able to fellowship with the other believers in the Lord. Since we were there for a fellowship, we didn’t have much time to visit the parks in Baguio until the tour time in the program and before going home . We were only able to visit a few: Wright Park, The mansion, Botanical Garden and the famous strawberry farm.

We went to strawberry farm before we travel back home. It was a very short stop with our tour bus because the driver didn’t want to go home at night as it would be very foggy and dangerous to travel back home (sobrang tarik pa naman ng kalsada dun!). Plus, binagyo pa kami, it was the time that Chedeng decided to pass by the Philippines. Thankfully, we went home safe and protected from the storm. It was reported that typhoon was at signal #2 that time. Strawberry picking costs Php 400 so we didn’t mind availing of it. lol! But we bought strawberries, strawberry wines and other sweets. It was still fun anyway and the place is amazing!!!

The botanical garden is one of the nearest parks in the city so it was our first stop. It’s a wonderful place (as usual!), I think everything’s nice in Baguio. lol. The place was good when we were there so as Nate’s mood so it was perfect and we all had a great time.

WRIGHT PARK AND THE MANSION

Pretty obvious that it was already raining but we still enjoyed the tour.

I bet they all had fun in that short ride
Trees have hands in Baguio 😉

Nanay had to just stay on the bus after we left the botanical garden. She couldn’t breathe easily and was having a hard time walking due to her sickness so she decided not to join us in going to Wright Park and the Mansion.

We didn’t visit as much places as we wanted to but we still had a great time. We weren’t able to visit the famous La Presa, it’s OK, we may be there next time. I’m happy to be able to visit Baguio with my family. It’s a dream come true for me to be in that cozy place with all of us together, I wish we had more time, nevertheless, the time we had together was fun-filled!


I don’t know when will our next reunion be but I’m thankful that God gave that 2-weeks for us to be together. When we all look back to where we were before, we would always end up praising God. Not that we’ve now become so very rich but now, we were able to have a short family trip together. Back when we were younger, we couldn’t even afford a Jollibee meal, haha (or maybe we could, we just didn’t try and the money spent on that meal could be our whole day food. We may not be rich but time and money just come and go, so why not spare some amount to be together with family. I definitely look forward for more reunion with them, but maybe not in places with long walking times in the mountains anymore, nanay can no longer enjoy that kind of adventure. I hope to be with them on a beach or have staycation together next time. 
A family is a family no matter what

  1. Baguio looks amazing! We also went there last December. It's great to spend time with your family there. I would want to visit Sitio La Presa because Forevermore is my favorite series to date 🙂 I cannot believe that strawberry picking is sooo expensive already!

  2. It's always fun to travel with the whole family. It makes up for the lost time, to catch up on each other's stories and bond with them while creating memories. Next time, you guys should try to visit Balatoc Mining as well in Itogon, Benguet (around 45 minutes away from Baguio) and La Presa of course.

  3. Nice photos! I haven't been in Baguio for awhile and would love to return and visit the popular sites again. Maybe not this summer, but the husband and I will definitely try to visit this year.

    Family trips are precious, because it's not always easy to organize and usually costs a lot. I am happy for you that you were able to go with your family and some friends too. It is a dream for me to be able to travel as a family – including extended family. The only thing we ever did, though we did it yearly, was go on summer outings, and it was always so much fun. A day at a pool resort, or a beach resort. Those were happpy times spent with cousins and aunts and uncles. I hope we can do those things again, and maybe even really travel together.

  4. It's really a blessing that all of you were together on that trip. We don't get to go to a lot of trips together with my side of the family kasi but at least we were able to have one trip recently too. 🙂 Precious times!
