When I received an invitation from Eurotel last week to an all expense paid trip to Baguio in time to catch the last days of the celebrated Panagbenga Festival, I knew it was just the break that I needed. It was my first time to travel away from home without the hubby. I was a bit hesitant at first, but with my husband’s approval, I figured it was the perfect getaway a homeschooling/work from home mom could really make use of. It was a healthy time out for me, away from my crazy busy schedule back on the home front.
I love that I was able to experience Flower Festival for the first time! We were there the last couple of days of Penagbenga and the crowd was still thick. It was fun to see lovely floral masterpieces such as this along Session Road.
This Baguio tour by Eurotel was exceptionally special. We were not just housed in very comfortable and homey rooms, the Eurotel Staff were beautiful people as well. My sincerest thanks to Ivan, Joseph and Ana who made sure we’re stuffed with treats and all out pampering. All eight of us bloggers, Iris of Pinayads.com, Jen of SexyNomad.com, Claire of LakwatseraDePrimera.com, Gay of PinayTravelJunkie.com, Montsch of Yipeemedia.com, Melo of OutofTownBlog.com, Jonel of LetsGoSago.net and me thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
My roomie, Claire and I were given the Euro Suite 1 room. A classy and decent room with Leaning Tower of Pisa on its wall. A Euro Suite 1 room has a queen-sized bed, hair dryer, hot/cold water / bathtub / shower, 24 hrs. cable TV movie channels, air-conditioned, safety deposit box, free Wifi and buffet breakfast. They used the right slipcovers that made the room really cozy. Rate for this room is P2,900, which is pretty affordable, if you will ask me. I will make sure to bring my boys here on our next trip to the Summer capital. 🙂
Eurotel Hotel also has function rooms that are perfect for company team buildings, event venues, training, parties, special occasions, seminars and conventions. They have a complete range of audio visual equipment and training tools which are suited for the most discriminating taste of participants.

After an hour or so of getting settled in our rooms, we went down to the dining area where we were served with this feast. Little did we know this was just first dibs on what’s to come throughout the duration of our tour. If I had known I would have dieted for a whole month. 🙂

The people behind this tour really made sure we get the most of our stay in Baguio. Leaving Manila early last Friday allowed for a quick r&r before we toured around the hotel and the socials. It was fun through and through. We were all satisfied with what we were able to do on our first day in Baguio. Totally took all the stress of having to wake up early and the long drive from Manila.
These are the people behind our lovely stay in Baguio last weekend: Joseph, Ana and Ivan with Eurotel Hotel Manager, Arnel Salvador.

Here are some photos I took from our trip that day to Oh My Gulay (Artist Cafe) where Melo treated us with refreshments. This O.M.G. Artist Cafe is a tourist spot in itself. Typing away this post while munching on Strawberry candies on the side is really making me miss Baguio. More posts on our blissful Baguio tour courtesy of Eurotel coming up. We were treated to more tours and feasts on our second day and massage too. 🙂
