Sagada: My Last Whisk of Dreams & Mountain Adventures

November 03, 2018

It's been a long while since I went out of town to do some unwinding and just travel and expose myself more to nature, but as you can see on my travel logs, I didn't have anything planned for this year (which was kind of a bummer, I really have to roll my luggages on 2019 New Year's Day) so I am left with reminiscing the great great times I had travelling with my friends and colleagues.

My travel to Sagada is one memorable feat, as it was my first time to bring along my sister to my colleagues' regular nature getaways (yep it was during the time when we were still best friends). Oh what changes a year (or more) can have with people: relationships broken, forbidden love blossomed, and friendships rekindled. When I look back at these photos, I couldn't help but feel that I have been a different person back then. The lady I see on these photos was unaware that certain darkness and challenges would come her way, within her family and among her friends.

I declare this adventure as my last taste of mountain climbing because of my knee condition. I had such youthful energy in involving myself into this extreme sports activity that my body couldn't catch up. My frail knees gave up and made me feel I cannot go up another mountain. 😭 It made me sad for a while, but then again thankful that I was able to experience mountain climbing. Never in my life have I imagined myself doing that, and I know my experiences in the mountains changed me forever.

I just love this picture above. Although my face is in the shadows, the scenery behind me is such breathtaking. I want to look back to this photo when I'm old and fragile, and just proudly tell myself that I did a great job because I was able to experience being in the mountains and seeing the beauty of the sunrise (my second mountain top sunrise that is!)

I don't know when and where I'll have this kind of adventure again, but I am forever grateful I was able to have these memories in me -- of the forests that I trekked, of the wonderful scenery I was able see from the peak of the mountains. I guess my ever-cracking knee will always be a reminder of the great great adventures I got to experience in life.😄
