Never in my wildest dreams did I think that we would experience Puning Hot Spring this summer along with our many firsts. First press/free trip for the blog. First engagement with fellow bloggers/travel journalists. First 4×4 ride. First hot spring bath. It all felt surreal! A special shout-out to Xenia Hotel and Hotels Guide PH!
It’s no secret that I love to visit new places but honestly, it’s not practical to travel every week especially I’m working full-time and going on a long vacation frequently would also mean using the allotted leave credits from work and pile of tasks to finish post-trip. To keep the adventure rolling while waiting for upcoming travels, I spend time to explore and experience something new in our own hometown.
I have this group of friends in college who invited me for Mt. Arayat trekking last 2013. I joined and loved the experience so much that I even looked forward to more of that kind of adventure.
