Captivated by Caleruega

“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature, and it will never fail you.”

~Frank Lloyd Wright~

I am home by now, but my mind is still in Caleruega, all Flora and Fauna (fishes, birds and a dog!), complete with a magnificent chapel, rooms if you want to stay overnight, serves food too, and a very kind dog, yes a kind dog! And lastly, any corner can be a place to commune with the Creator. When you go to Caleruega, you will be closer to God and be reminded of all His creations that we sometimes think as already ordinary. When they are not.

I once said, to be very lucky being near Tagaytay. It is an “Everything Beautiful Zone”! There are lots of hotels to choose from, restaurants, inns, parks, resorts, all sorts, farms, monasteries where you can have ube yams (one of my favorites), markets where you can find the freshest fruits and vegetables (I once bought a purple cabbage from there – which isn’t always available in the lowlands), there’s a mini zoo, there is also an area where you can purchase unique pieces of wooden (carved by local artisans) furniture, and famous for the famous smallest volcano in the world. Did I miss something?

A trip to Tagaytay is like a stress – buster. Cold weather, friendly people and everything nice! Just a few inutes after Tagaytay is Batangas.

Caleruega is just one among the endless list of spots in that area where you can relax and just be who you wanna be for a time. As if smelling the flowers and being one with nature is something you can not exchange with anything. For a time! (–,)

Captured this for my friend (Mia bunso)!

This is a flower…one of a kind!

This is the church…Attended a wedding here years ago…Chatty’s wedding! (–,)

I noticed they are equipped with useful signages. This one gives cautions to take care. “Ingat po!” is a Filipino way of saying “Take care” or “Be safe!”

Takin’ a rest from the long walks!
