Manos Greek Taverna, Tagaytay


I have always dreamed of going to Santorini in Greece, I have always wanted to explore it and get lost in the traditional villages of the island built on tall cliffs, and just leave my jaw hanging on the view over the submerged volcano. That is why I was so happy when we discovered by coincidence a little piece of Greece humbly tucked in Tagaytay. Manos Greek Taverna is similar to Santorini in a way, and a little imagination was very much helpful to make our recent discovery  very much worthwhile.

Special thanks to our boredom one Saturday morning, we decided to take on a spontaneous road trip to Tagaytay. We discovered Manos Greek Taverna and found ourselves in one of Tagaytay’s best kept secrets. We were just taking a stroll along Tagaytay and noticed a quaint Greek bed and breakfast at the side of the road. We willingly indulged to its humble invitation, and lo and behold, we discovered a great place to lounge around and relax.

Tagaytay Ridge and Zipline


I live in the south, and living in the south of Metro Manila has valuable perks especially when it comes to accessing the most accessible destinations known for leisure and recreation. One of the most visited destinations here in the south is perhaps Tagaytay.

My boyfriend Pao and I celebrated our 5th anniversary (2009)  in Tagaytay Ridge and Zipline. We are both thrill-seekers, but since we were still in college back then, we did not have the luxury of time to take on weekend trips to try out something novel and exciting. However, a zipline adventure may be the next-best-thing to do to celebrate. And so we were off to Tagaytay to experience a new kind of adventure.

We drove from Makati to Tagaytay in a matter of less than 2 hours since there were intermittent traffic jams along the way. But nevertheless, the long drive seemed a lot better when we were welcomed by the cool breeze of Tagaytay brushing through our faces.
