Weekend trip

One of my friends will be having her birthday and to celebrate, we'll be going to Baguio City, a place high up in the mountains, for the weekend. We'll be leaving in about 11 hours; the trip will take around seven hours (but knowing them, it'll probably take a bit more because of stops we'll be making along the way).



The weather in Metro Manila (where I am) is in the 23-32 Celsius (73.4-89.6 Fahrenheit) range; in Baguio City it plays between 15-24 Celsius (59-75.2 Fahrenheit) now. That might seem practically balmy to many of you who are in North America and Europe, but it's considered cooler weather here! :-)



We'll relax, take in the scenery, relish the fresh air and the ever-present scent of pine trees, and just have fun! But I'll pop in every now and then to check up on things online--and maybe to make a post. (Shhhh, don't tell the girlfriends I'll be sneaking out on them!)

Have a great weekend, you sexy creatures. Be safe, don't be too naughty. Always remember that someone's waaatchiiiing you!

Awww that looks breathtaking. And trips with good friends...what could be more awesome? I am ready for some fresh air and green stuff. I feel like I have been trapped in the office for months. Enjoy the scenery and the company.

ZI: It should be cooler, yep. But we'll see. Have fun too. ;-)

Lizza said...

Thanks, Deb. You don't like La Gioconda's eyes? They're way better than her overrated non-smile! Your threesome pic, on the other hand, is just plain wrong. ;-)

Wendz in France said...

Now what is that Moaning Minnie looking at her? Her private bits? Looks very suspicious to me...

Have a fab weekend - it looks smashing. Drive safe.

Sidney said...

Enjoy your weekend in Baguio. Nice place to celebrate a birthday!

Your Mona Lizza is a bit creepy. I hope it is not a self-portrait.

mist1 said...

Next time, I want to come along. I will need a little advance notice, of course.

Kiyotoe said...

Go ahead and rub it in Lizza. The only scenery i have around here is all the damn kudzu growing in my backyard.

Damn.

Have fun anyway.

BeckoningChasm said...

Gorgeous photos. Though I could do without Mona's laser stare. No, no, I will not tell you! Stop it! No snacks for anyone, now.

terra shield said...

The scenery looks amazing!

Have fun!

Tom Atkins said...

That mountain scene calls to me. Very lovely! Wnjoy your trip. I'm not sure I'd come back. I fled the city 25 years ago and never looked back.

Hi, I landed here through Prometheus' link. Have a great trip!

Mimi Lenox said...

That is a very strange Mona Lisa, my dear. Spooky. Have a wonderful, relaxing trip, my little beautiful blogger girlfriend. You deserve a rest.

Lizza said...

bond: Thanks! I had fun and I'm back safe and sound.

Wendz: She's freaky, she sees everything. :-D

Sidney: It's as much a self-portrait as the one you put on your blog. Haha! I still don't believe that was you.

Bud: Thanks! She says thanks too. :-)

Pining: Hi there! Great to hear from a fellow Pinay. Welcome to the blogging world. Baguio was so relaxing (except for Session Road).

Nan: Batteries are charged...full speed ahead! :-D

Aisby: It's a beautiful place. Thanks!

Kyels: I tried to behave, haha!

mist1: Of course, how remiss of me. Leave a week open for May 2008, okay? :-D

kiyotoe: Kudzu can be fun. Just takes a bit of imagination, haha!

beckoningchasm: That means she likes you! She always does that to people she likes. :-D

Terra: Thanks, I did!

Tom: I can understand how you feel. Your photos show just how beautiful mountain scenery is and how serene everything can be.

Michael: Thanks! Pay no her no heed, she's just attention-hungry.

Steve: Thanks, you lovely kook!

Julia: Welcome! Of course I know who you are. Our dear friend Prometheus thinks the world of you. :-D

Mimi: Spooky...she and I both. :-D Thank you, O Queen. We enjoyed ourselves.

Julia Scissor ;-) said...

*goes red in the face* Ah, the wages of flirting is fame...

Lizza said...

Haha! Well, he sure can pick 'em. He has good taste. :-D
