Holy Week at Taal

I spent my holy week in Batangas last March 20-22. It was in Taal, Ryan's province. The meeting place that time was in Robinson's Metro East, night of 19th then we slept in their house in Pasig and made our way to Batangas as early as 3AM the next day. From Cubao to Taal, it was almost 5 hours! Grabe ang tagal! Our first stop was with Taal Church. The church is very old but a big one.

After that, Ryan brought us to their provincial home. We had our lunch there and rest for a while. The next activity that we did was mountain hiking! We rode a banca that is owned by Ryan's aunt and it got us to the starting point of the mountain. Yes, the hiking was really tiring but it was a lot of fun! It took us more than two hours to reach the cater of Taal Volcano.

When we have arrived to the crater, whew! Ang gaan sa pakiramdam and the scenery was so refreshing, nakakarelax. We rested there for about half an hour. After that adventure, we returned to Ryan's house and immediately prepared our things to proceed to Villagracia Resort. When we arrived there, we had our dinner then we slept.

The next day was the real swimming day! We just made way to the pool because we were not that interested on the beach. After that quick swimming we had our lunch there then took a nap. Also that time was the start of support for TATRA Bank (notice the laptop besides me?). San ka pa?! Working while on vacation huh?!

We left the resort at 3pm I think and we bought some pasalubongs. Then we went back to Ryan's house to rest and pack our things because we were leaving the next day. We played cards para makapaglibang at pampalipas oras. We left Taal Batangas at around 4 or 5 in the morning. That was a quick vacation but it was really nice and do different and interesting activities!
