Horseback riding in Baguio Camp John Hay

They love horseback riding so much that they even have favorite horses at the riding trail in John Hay. V’s fave is a horse named Rainbow, while Pat’s is Tanduay (yeah, yeah, it’s named after one of Baguio folks’ favorite beverages).

They love horseback riding so much that hub, at one point, considered buying a horse! Eh. Not gonna happen. Where are we gonna park it? Out in front of the house, tied to the gate? šŸ˜€

Hello from Baguio!

Hi, friends!

i’m just dropping a few lines. My family and I are still on vacation in my hometown, Baguio City. We’re going to stay here for a week. As always, I look forward to spending time with my parents and family and some old friends I grew up with.

I am thankful that there are areas such as this one that are still forested –

Incidentally, I posted about Baguio at the FilipinoMomBlog (FMB). It’s a two-part series, and Part 1 is now posted.Ā Check out the FMB post here.
