My daily journal started 11 years ago! I’ve always wanted to remember wonderful blessings in my life then I formally started this blog a year ago to share it to you through technology along with my hopes, dreams, accomplishments, joys, travels and who I am.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the people for all the inspiring messages/comments. I may not be able to reply on it one by one reading it made me happy. Knowing that I somehow became an inspiration to someone else’s life is remarkable.

My blog reaches 45,700+ such a great number of visitors for a 1 year old blog! A million thanks to all the blogs that featured me. Let me return the favor by publishing your link too… and if my blog is included to yours and not on the list just let me know. Thanks!

Fun-Filled Tagaytay Zipline Adventure

Published July 19, 2010 by starvillanueva

“When you’re with your family, it’s always a precious moment that money can’t buy”

The Day Started by attending  an early mass at Antipolo Church (around 4am) and a Coffee zip in Mcdonalds! Then my mom and I saw the Tagaytay Zipline on a Newspapers’ frontpage!  Since we were blessed with bright rays of sunshine and no sign of rain that morning, we thought of going to Tagaytay! Tagaytay is one of the place my family and I always visit, it’s near, it’s cool, it’s refreshing.

 

This time, we tried Picnic Groves’ Zipline! I love the feeling I get when the adrenaline is pumping through my body! Whether that be from bungee jumping, roller coasters, Parajump, skydiving, or other activities, I cannot seem to get enough of it. Some might call me an adrenaline junky since I am always looking for the next adventure!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We all soared above a lush jungle on a zipline! Since we are in the Philippines and not America, the safety regulations are quite different this giving you the option to be strapped in however you wish. My choice was to fly face first while lying on my stomach, like Superman. (Since I already tried being strapped in Harness while sitted in Singapore’s Sentosa Zipline which I should blog next time.) You are secured by a few straps that are supposed to be one size fits all. My 10-year-old sister and I both had the same size of harness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I felt extremely secure because the strap was invading my personal space. Besides flying higher than a football field above the ground, the view encompasses a reflection of the center part of the volcano off the crater lake that has formed from a previous explosion. Best part above all (in my opinion) is that they have their own photographer to click a photo of you while your up in the air! The Photo will be given after 10-15mins! Wow! I love souvenir photos especially rare moment ones!

After Picnic Grove had an early dinner at Josephine’s, Starbucks and Tierra de Maria. With its cool climate and close proximity to Manila, Tagaytay has evolved from a mere quaint, transient stopover to one of the country’s favorite holiday and weekend retreats. What’s so special about Tagaytay? The food, the place, the climate, the price – everything except that it will probably make you fat to go there often!
