At the Strawberry Farm

I’m back from a busy days. Anyway, just to continue my retreat and tour experiences at Baguio City. Actually we only have 1 day tour on some beautiful tourist spots in Baguio. The first stop of our tour was at the Strawberry Farm. I was really excited to see how a strawberry plant looked like, and as we arrived to the place we went directly to the farm and to my amazed it was just a small plant. We took pictures like we were the owner of the farm (hehehe). They also have other plants like onions, lettuce and cabbage. After we took pictures we went to the other side of the farm where small stores were located. They were selling souvenir items like key chains, t-shirts, hats and etc. They also sell “pasalubong” like the famous strawberry jam and wine, peanut brittle and other delicacies from Baguio. We have so much fun at the farm that as we went back to the bus all of us were carrying bags of “pasalubong”.
Before going to the Retreat House for our breakfast we went to the Lourdes Shrine. There you can found the Grotto of the Blessed Virgin Mary but before you can reach the Grotto you have to climb the 200 steps stairways. But I haven’t gone to the top because we were busy choosing silver accessories located nearby.
