First day of 2017: A Quick Escape to Mt. Gulugod Baboy, Mabini, Batangas

Yes, you saw it right. The day after New Year’s eve, we headed straight to Mt. Gulugod Baboy to start the year on top.

It wasn’t really the main objective. We went to Mabini, Batangas to celebrate our dear friend Kathleen’s birthday (Yes, she’s a New Year baby). Since their home is very near Mt. Gulugod Baboy, we decided to visit the minor-climb mountain along the way.


This time, I’m with my college buddies Gil, Hanna and Buffy.


All these greens and rural feels at the beginning of the year are invigorating!


It was raining a little when we hiked Mt. Gulugod Baboy, making it difficult to control ourselves from slipping on the muddy trail.


But that didn’t stop us from taking Instagram-worthy shots. Haha!


Notice how excited I am to reach the top of the mountain. I didn’t even notice I was too far from the squad already. Haha!


Happy new year from the top of Mt. Gulugod Baboy!

Ending it off with this dramatic nature-admiring photo of me

It was a unique feeling to be on top of a mountain on the first day of the year! It felt like you’re on fire and very eager to start the year right. It actually reminded me of my priorities and ambitions in life.

Hopefully, 2017 for me will be a year of reaching dreams and conquering more heights.
