Who, in their right mind, would want to “swing by” Sagada, just to eat? Us, apparently, and yes, we are in our right minds. We figured it’s a shame that we haven’t tried some of the now-famous places to eat in Sagada when it is, technically, our neighbor.

In every journey, pit and rest stops are a given, and I felt it only right to share some info about mine. I consider it my small way of providing something helpful and informative, as opposed to just talking about what I’ve seen and what I did.

Whoever said that one mountain is just like any other clearly does not know what he’s talking about. Or hasn’t gone to more than one mountain. Simple as that. I love how, despite experiencing something that is seemingly ordinary, we are still somehow given a surprise. It’s like the Creator is telling us, “So you think you’ve seen everything, huh? You think you’ve experienced the best and the finest. Well, I have a lot of aces up my sleeves to show you yet.” To which, I could only say, “that is one looooong sleeve you got there. BRING IT.” One of those aces, it turns out, is called Mt. Polis.
This was another one of those “ok, just tell me when and where, and what to bring, and I’ll be there” things. I didn’t know what event we’re actually joining. Just the mention of “let’s go to the mountains” made me take off like a shot. I then learned it was the Pre-Begnas Activity, which also includes the Lepas Fiesta. It entails trekking and camping, before joining the festivities the next day.
