Those who backpack across the Philippines will tell you that there can be magic when you board a bus headed to your next great adventure. To some, buses even become havens – sanctuaries of peace as they get those last few hours of rest before disembarking on a journey across foreign lands. Those who truly love travel are able to appreciate long bus rides and the promise of adventure that they bring.

Our first stop, and actually my first time here, was a Filipino Cafe called Choco-late de Batirol. I have heard about this place numerous time but never got the chance to visit. Choco-late de Batirol is located at Scout Hill in Camp John Hay, Baguio City.
What a fantastic first day it has been! But we're not yet done with our gastronomic adventure as we were set to have our dinner at Te Quiero Tapas Bar and Restaurant located just beside Victory Liner terminal and Microtel Inn and Suites.
Baguio City is one of my favorite quick getaways up north Metro Manila. For the past few years, I have managed to visit the Summer Capital of the Philippines at least twice yearly. I tried to do and see new things in each visit considering the fact that Baguio City has a lot to offer. My recent visit was no exemption. Never did I realize that Baguio City is more than just the sights, strawberries and cool weather -- it's a food haven as well!
Siargao is world-famous for surfing due to its waves that barrel up to nine feet high, making it known as the "Surfing Capital of the Philippines".
