Lucky me, I married David. Why? Because my husband’s family enjoys visiting different places together. And because we are part of his family now, I was able to join them too.
Last year’s adventure was at the north part of the country , Ilocos region. We spent 3 days of vacation, my husband was also here during that time. It was month of April then.
And this year, we were dragged to Baler. My husband wasn’t here to help me look after JD. He missed this adventure, happened on April too. I thought I can’t join them as I also had a work then, but they asked me first when I could possibly take a leave, and they’d schedule according to my availablity, very touching. I wasn’t expecting that 🙂 They were thinking of me so I could join them, albeit my husband wasn’t here, thank you!
And the adventure began. It took us more than 5 hours of drive to reach Baler, it was that long because we took a different route, we had it at mountains, scary as it was beginning to get dark, and we heard that there’s lot of NPA around. But thank God He guided us and kept us safely. We reached Baler at night and started to look for a place to stay. Glad we found one, but transferred again the next day.
On our 2nd day, that was the time that we enjoyed Baler. We enjoyed the beach, as well as JD. If I were big that time, I would probably not be wearing a swimwear, I would perhaps be saying, “these plus size bathing suits” love me 😀 but the opposite, thanks my braces, I was thinner to wear the not for plus size bathing suit.
Besides the beach, one of the most wonderful yet tiring experience was the trecking to Ditumabo Mother Falls. It took us more than 30 minutes of hike, the way was rocky and rough. Imagine I was carrying Jhaydii, that was too adamant of me to carry my 11kgs daughter. But thankfully, my legs and arams were strong to endure the hike. See below pictures too…
Let these pictures tell you the whole story. Thank you Baler!
