My Thrilling 682 pesos Hapunang Banoi escapade

“Survival was my only hope, success my only revenge.” Patricia Cornwell 

Its not easy to stick with your plans. Climbing mountains, saving, bonding with your family and friends.. any ways.. parang pag akyat lang yan ng bundok.. kailangan ng sipag at tiyaga.. para makita ang magagandang view sa taas ng bundok.

Being a BADget (budget) traveler is quite hard you really need to plan about your travel and you cant afford to lose even a single peso in your pocket. When i was a young girl i’d really love to travel with my Lola emi.. Lagi kong inaantay ang summer vacation or kahit sem break lang kase yun yung mga panahong nag paplano sila umalis nung mga teachers at mag punta sa kung saan saan.. Parang ang bilis ng panahon.. Dati di ako namumrublema paano yung pamasahe at pagkain ko pag mag tatravel. Tipong mag dala ka lang ng damit mo ok na pak ganern . Ngayon matanda na ako gusto pag gusto kong magtravel kailangan sinasaalang-alang ko na ang mga bagay-bagay dahil may tinatawag na tayong  needs vs wants at priorities. 

“Kuya malapit na ba tayo?” Ussually yan mga tanong ng mga nag hahike. Sagot naman ng guide.. “Mam/Sir malapit na tayo” pero ang totoo medyo malayo pa depende pa sa haba ng biyas mo. Naalala ko nung namundok kame ni dy dati kong kateam nag kayayaan ng biglaang pag akyat ng bundok. Napag usapan namin bigla na umakyat ng bundok sa may Rizal. Of course excited ang batang gala. Dali dali sa pagbili ng islanders  sandals dapat yung pang bundok sa SM. Then the waiting time is over. We decided to climb Hapunang Banoi the following week. Medyo eggzoited na medyo may takot. Hello? Its a mini-major climb take note dalawa lang kame ni dy na aakyat. Ok sige push na ito.

We took a jeepney ride from Tayuman to MCU. Then took a bus going Cubao. Then an fx to Rizal and lastly a tricycle papuntang Rodriguez, Rizal junction para mag paregister sa pag akyat papuntang Hapunang Banoi.

We started our hike 5:30 am at nakarating ng baba galing ng bundok ng 1:30 pm. took a rest then pak balik na papuntang Manila.

Medyo maputik na akyatan dahil may kasagsagang bagyo nung umakyat kame pero its a super worth it experience. Mararanasan mong sumakit ang mga binti, pag pawisan at mapagod. But when you reach the summit and view the rockies.. wooohoo! Breath taking experience. Worth it din ang pagkapigtas ng sandals ni Dy. (Hello?  Ilang bundok  na naman kase ang inakyat ng sandals mo kaibigan).

“Mam abot mo ba?” Tanung ng guide. Pasensya na medyo maliit ang biyas ng inyong lingkod. “Kakayanin kuya!” Gang maabot ko ang tuktok ng isang malaking rock formation. Wooohooo.. worth it view.. kulang na lang isigaw ko.. “im the most beautiful bitch in the world!!” Chos.

Anyways theres always a new lesson in every trip that I had.

“Never stop once you reach the top. keep on going!”

Til the next travel adventure!

Kala mo madali lang.. try mo kaya..

Ayooos!

We’re on the top of the world!!!
