Got the chance to travel again to Baguio last March when I was tasked to attend a seminar from our client. My trip coincided with the closing celebration of Panagbenga Festival but we managed to experience some activities like the “Session Road in Bloom” where the whole stretch of Session Road was closed to give way to vendors showcasing native products and “Cultural Dance Program” sponsored by Aloha Philippines and Baguio Metamorphosis.


sorry for the poor photo

This trip also made my overdue plan of going to Sagada and Banaue possible. So I tagged my travel hubby along and woke up early to catch the first trip of GL Transit bus going to Sagada located at Dangwa Terminal. I was stunned to see a lot of passenger piled up at the terminal that early, and with this, we got to seat at the last row of the bus.

Once settled, I noticed this plastic bag tied up at the front and back part of the bus. I was curios but did not bother to ask until we started our journey…


“mahiwagang plastic bag”

Zigzag roads… sharp curves… driving up and down the hill… and people started getting one of those plastic bags. Even my travel hubby who is used of riding the bus also felt dizzy (but did not get to the point of getting one of those plastic). Now the purpose of that plastic bag was made clear.
