baguio_1We never really had a solid plan for this year’s holy week. We couldn’t travel outside of the country because most of my family had their passports renewed. But come Maundy Thursday, my mom wakes us up at 6AM and tells us to pack our bags because we’re going up to Baguio.

baguio_4baguio_2Road accidents (including a 10 car pile up on the highway) + a few stop overs, we finally arrived in Baguio past 6pm. After 9 hours on the road, we went straight to one of our fave restaurants in Baguio, Cafe by the Ruins! baguio_3baguio_7My mom is a big fan of ABS-CBN’s hit teleserye, Forevermore. So the next morning, we decided to check out Sitio La Presa where it’s currently being shot. La Presa is located a top Mount Cabuyao in Tuba Benguet. It took us about 30 minutes to get there from the city proper, but due to it’s popularity, it took us an hour to get up the mountain and find parking. Check out how to get to La Presa here!

To enter the actual house, they will charge you P25 (which is illegal by the way!) for a so-called Environmental Fee.
