First Hike in 2017: Taal Volcano

When I was young, I thought the Taal volcano is really the one that I saw every time we go up to Tagaytay. It is not! I believe in that for almost I don’t know years of my life. Lol! The crater of the volcano is right behind that Mountain. The one that we saw every time we go to Tagaytay is Mt. Binintiang Malaki.

Here are some of the photos from our recent hike:

I want my coffee cold just like his feelings for me. I love planting herbs. When I am not blogging or watching Korean Dramas I am indulging myself with books and magazines. Always hungry for adventures.
