EXPERIENCE: Mt. Banahaw 1 of 3
Dolores, Quezon Province,
One who knows others, is knowledgeable. One who knows one's self, is wise. - Lao Tzu
I wanna share to you my 3-day stay in Mt. Banahaw as part of my adventure on rediscovering myself as MYSELF. This 3-day activity was funded by a private organization which aims to build a community of empowered people through service and giving back to less fortunate individuals. Among the 400++ members of this organization, I was blessed to be part of the chosen 35 who undergone a transformation upon finishing the said camp.
Before heading to camp, participants were advised to bring the following:
As I prepare my things for the camp, I can't help but to jiggle as a sign of how excited I am with this. I very much excited since its my first time to be at Mt. Banahaw and to meet people from different parts of the Philippines. I don't have any pre-judgement on the activities that we're going to have but all I have was pure enthusiasm.
All the participants have been gathered to a place in Pasay City around 4:45 am. Departure time was at 5am. We were composed of three (3) private vans. We gotta chance to have a stop over at South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) to grab some breakfast. It was a two (2) to three (3) hour travel by land from Pasay to Dolores, Quezon.
After a long ride, we finally arrived at Nature Villa Banahaw.
