I spend too much time in airports than I should be. Preferring early morning or early evening flights during my domestic trips, I find myself hanging out during the hours when I am productive. Being an online freelancer, and having a cool boss who allows flexibility in my work hours – I get to bring work around with me. It may not always be the ideal vacation for some – to have work around with them when they are meant to take a break from work, but that is not always my case. I end up going to the airport early to find some place to do some work while waiting for my flight. This is one of the reason I discovered and now frequent an airport lounge called The Wings Transit Lounge at Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

It was my first time to visit Baguio City, and I have always found myself drawn to it even when I know it is a crowded city with high tourist traffic. I am never a big fan of large crowd, ironic may it seem for a traveler. I have always found joy in the remote, and beautiful places I would find myself nesting at and calling it a home for a few days stay. The Forest Lodge at Camp John Hay warmly welcomed us and it became home for the next few days at Baguio City.
