Back to Back in Cagayan


Cagayan up north is as hot as its hospitality. Tuguegarao is not just about the temps going on high 30s but the best place to have a 2 hour massage, have coffee and eat longganisa anytime of the day. Callao, in chavacano is silent. But you can’t help but give a shoutout once you reach the 184th step in this side of the province. Or when you get to see the chapel in the cave or the skylight from within. Think journey to the center of the earth…or avatar.


Oh, Iguig. You made my heart sing. It was like a smaller version of the hills of Batanes with the statues of the stations of the cross.
