And to cap off the life-changing year of travels, I go up north- to the mountains of the Cordilleras for a year-end hike organized by my friend Gideon Lasco of Pinoy Mountaineer. We went exploring Bokod, Benguet and trekking Mt. Purgatory Traverse, passing along Mt. Pack, Mt. Purgatory (which is not really a mountain) and Kom-Kompol Viewpoint which is an overload of pine trees and mossy rainforest trails.
I know that my blogger friends will talk about the hike details and itinerary so I would just be showing you a simple edit of how the hike went out.

Shout out to Sir Gideon for inviting me in this climb. Hello to my new outdoor friends Coby, Koi, Miki, Daniel, Steve, Ralph and Wilmer. Of course, to my fellow PTB Christine and Ivan, we finally see each other on the trails. Until our next major climb!
