Mighty Ambuklao

One of the things I liked about the husband is his spontaneity.  Most of our travels are spur-of-the-moment decisions like when we are invited to friends' birthdays, baptismal, even funeral and weddings.  Usually though, our trips to Baguio are made to show family and friends Baguio itself. This time we went there to sort of treat  two of his friends who has helped in the repair of our home through their time and efforts in painting and doing a bit of carpentry works Sande and Laping.  Sande brought with him his wife and their baby. Laping's girlfriend was not able to come with us because of a prior commitment.

We had lunch at Coran Ihaw-Ihaw in Sta. Maria, Bulacan.  We dropped by our previous landlady, the owner of the apartment we had rented in Mandaluyong to get our deposit. She was glad to have us for a visit.

So we stayed again at what has become our favorite inn , The Villa Princess Theresa along 221 Session Road.  They have a family room(P2,500) with 2 queen size beds, clean bathrooms with heater plus big enough space for extra beds.

We could have found a cheaper alternative by renting an apartment on a daily basis where we could do our own cooking but it does not make sense if we stay only overnight. Still,  we did get value for our money at this inn. So we toured Baguio and got lots of photos and on our way back the husband decided we take the Ambuklao Road because we haven't pass that road yet.

Well , the road to Ambuklao is zigzagged and stopped only when we descended onwards to Nueva Vizcaya.  our travel companions who were seated at the back of the fortuner were dazed and didn't enjoy the view. Maggie, our youngest threw up and i had to change clothes. As for the rest of us, we wondered at how mightly Ambuklao was and how magnificent God's creation is! We stopped just barely to take in the beauty of Ambuklao and then proceeded to Nueva Vizcaya and arrived at past 2 in the afternoon. We visited a friend of the husband, sang a few songs on the karaoke and travelled on to manila arriving just past midnight.  All credit to husband's driving and to God Almighty's Guiding Hands. We did this in less than 48 hours, yes that's the kind of road trip we do, almost always in the road. :)
