Short getaway for us

Our little family took advantage of the long "Undas" weekend to take a short breather from our daily routines. It's not often that we get such a chance. We simply went to nearby Tagaytay via a short 1 and a half hour drive. We simply borrowed a relatives' house, did our own cooking. Our kids loved playing in the playground (free!) and it was so much more fun when it was cold. They were able to run about in the village's deserted streets, which we don't get to do back in the city. How much did we shell out for such a trip? Let me put it this way, the money spent for the food for 5 adults and 2 kids for the 4 day 3 night trip would have lasted us only 1 night in wood cabins and log beds. And did we enjoy ourselves? Tremendously! There are ways of having a great time without spending a lot!
