Sagada via Banaue, Part 3: Spelunking @ Sumaguing Cave

Sedimentary Rock Formation Inside Sumaguing Cave, Sagada, Philippines
Our second day in Sagada started with a promise of beautiful day. Lovely skies hugged the mountain, giving us hope that rain won't get in our way. Rain was not welcome for us on that day because caving would be cancelled due to the flooding inside the cave that the rain will cause.

View of Sagada From our Room
We left Manila for Sagada last December 27 at about 9:30 pm. We had several stops along the way but our first major stop was Banaue Rice Terraces at about 8:00 am of December 28. About 11:00 am, we reached Sagada.

From Indian Wells to Australian Open...Dreams of a Tennis Fan

Daniela and Who?, Indian Wells, CA
One of the events in Southern California that I always would not want to miss going to is the tennis event in Indian Wells, CA. I am a big tennis fan, I may not watch a lot of TV, but somehow, when it is tennis out there, I can take some time sitting in front of TV. And whenever there is a tournament here in Southern California, as long as I have free time, I do come to watch.

Sagada via Banaue Part 1: The Banaue Rice Terraces

The Banaue Rice Terraces
Back several decades ago, when I was much younger, my uncle would always test me what are the 7 wonders of the world. After reciting correctly the 7 ancient wonders, my uncle would surprise me, "and what is the 8th wonder?" To his satisfaction, I would proudly say, "The Banaue Rice Terraces of the Philippines!"

One of the top casinos found in Europe is located on the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal’s Casino Lisboa is one of the top destinations when visiting the capital city.

Leaving home...... Coming home

My long but seems short vacation is over, sad to leave the place that I always have called home, but happy as well to be coming back to my now new home.
Presently at the airport waiting for my boarding for the very long trip back home. Confusing, isn't it? That I am soon leaving home to come back home.
Picture below is from my cell phone from one of my hikes with my family here in my home sweet Philippines, at Mambukal Mountain Resort, Negros Occidental.

     Time is a precious possession. Gifted with ample time I would love to be on a Galapagos Cruise Ship  watching the sunset, looking at the tranquil waters, the marvelous sky, listening to my hubby's sweet nothings embracing me from behind smiling with all the happiness in the world thinking of what we both love nature and wildlife; calling out to turtles and seals and supporting the Galapagos Island conservation like what M/V Galapagos Explorer II offering Galapagos cruises with passenger safety as their main priority does.
