Cordillera Soul Searching

When I look back at it, funny how I have to experience first five days of social detachment before I can figure out that I don't need certain things in my life, that I can live with less cyberspace clutter and that I need to get my act together to finally move on to much important and better purpose in life. I've been stalling for more than 2 months now when I seriously need to get my shit together and find a decent job to feed my own mouth.

I was pretty much determined to do the latter but first I have to get away. Originally I planned on going alone but had second thoughts, I've spent quite a lot of alone time the past few days I might break down and cry when I get to my supposed destination so I might as well ask some confused souls in my sojourn. And that's how we three ended up being together. Unemployed people unite!

Thank you Mick and Claire for coming with me in this travel adventure, our mutual employment status made this trip possible. At least the money went to something relevant right? ;)

Tappiya Falls at Brgy. Batad, the bus we took from Banaue to Bontoc, Bokong Falls in Sagada and the three traveler's baggages

I would forever remain in awe of the great Cordillera mountains no matter how many times I've been in it. Actually, there's still so much land to see, Cordillera is so vast it would take an entire lifetime to explore it all. And I don't think I have an entire lifetime dedicated only for it but at least I've been there twice already. NOIIIICE! I will see you again, soon.

And oh, I found my soul. It was still there somewhere. Bruised but perfectly intact. I hope it has been refreshed as what I intended it to be in the first place.
