Sagada, Philippines

Our weather was perfect for the mountains. Warm days and a little chill in the evening. Loved meeting people at the Cellar Door over dinner and a campfire. He craft brews beer, his wife makes traditional dinners, served buffet style.

Never have I been in a cave with NO safety rails or steps, where they were surely needed! But our guide took good care of us. Made for an authentic experience!

Baguio, Philippine Islands.

For a treat, we stayed at the five star Baguio Country Club for one night, before returning to Manila.

As we traveled we read my grandmother Betty’s letters written in 1933, when she traveled here as part of her husband’s Official Government Delegation. After riding horseback through some of the villages, she wrote how nice it was to return to the Mansion House in Baguio. It is still the summer palace for the government. Although destroyed and leveled by the Japanese in WWII, it is totally reconstructed.
