We all have stories to tell. These are mine – the twisted words of life.

Energetic October – Mt. Gulugod Baboy Ft. Isla Sumbrero

leave a comment »

Our October getaway should be at Calaguas BUT due to unavoidable “talkshits”, Calaguas didn’t happened. But hey, we won’t stop right there. We have to go somewhere near and something feasible. So Batangas is the place to be.

This friend of mine is dying to go here at this mountain in our place and since the weather was so cooperative that day, TADAAAAH! Touchdooooown!

How to go here:

1. Ride a bus from Buendia/Cubao going to Batangas City Pier. Ride the one with the signboard ACTEX Derecho for you to travel in a much shorter time.

2. Alight at Batangas City Grand Terminal.

3. Ride a jeepney going to Mabini. Php35.00

4. Alight at Bayan ng Mabini. Then ride a jeepney going to Gasang. Php8.00

5. Alight at Brgy. Gasang. You’ll notice a “kubo” with lots of motorcycle parked that will bring you to Mt. Gulugod Baboy. Php150.00

6. Then you’re ready for hiking.

We arrived just in time to witness the sunset which we all loved by the way.

The first time I was here was way back 2011. My mom and my sibs didn’t even rode a motorcycle. We walked 4 hours I guess from Gasang to the top (with lots of rest and lots of chikka of course) Everything’s easy now I guess. you can even bring your own car.

Our tired faces from walking because we didn’t let the motorcycle drivers wait for us. It was fun walking in the dark with our phones only in hand. We were actually playing cards that time after having dinner form that tiring walk to home.

The reason why were here – beach! I guess you all know how I love and adore the  beach and everything related to it.
