Feeling stressed? Then the best thing that you can do is to take a break. Stepping away from work in small chunks of time will help in releasing physical and mental pressures. It allows a healing mental break and serves as reward for better feeling of oneself.
On this coming week, from Thursday up to Sunday would be my great escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. BFF Aieen invited me to go with them in Aringay, La Union to visit her family and relatives. Swimming at the beach and traveling up to Baguio City are listed on our itinerary. I'm so enthralled to go walking along the seashore and swimming at the beach. I can't remember when was the last time I went to a beach for swimming that's why I'm so thrilled to feel once again the saltiness of seawater and air. It would be nice also to experience lying in a hammock near the sea while sipping a favorite drink.
After a day or two, we'll be driving up to Baguio City which is only 1 hour drive from my friend's place in La Union. I'm not really excited to visit the place because I've been there twice. Baguio City is beautiful but not as beautiful as before. I couldn't see anymore the abundant pine trees that triumphantly parading on the highways and on top of the mountains. I just feel sad because the natural beauty of the place and the cool weather of the city seems to fade. There are thousands of houses built in the mountainside and it looks like dove houses when you had seen it in a farther view.
But still, there's a lot of wonderful things to be enjoyed at Baguio City. I'll gonna have a chance to visit once again the Baguio Botanical Garden, The Burnham Park, The Mines View Park and a lot more. It's nice to capture magnificent view and wonderful moments with my friend's family on a place like this. It's also a perfect moment for me to enliven my spirit, rejuvenate and recharge my stressed body and mind. It will also the best time to connect and embrace myself with Mother Earth's exquisite beauty.
For now, I'm so excited and ready for our upcoming travel.
