The buwis buhay shot that my friend did at the start of the trail! She's trying to capture my other friend's picture that is in that far bridge.

Me with my friends at the trail! It was fun walking and taking photographs at Tagaytay Picnic Grove trail! It's tiring but I enjoyed it.

Now I know why it feels like my first time here in Tagaytay Picnic Grove! It's because I'm finally with my special someone that I waited for a long time. This was our first trip as boyfriend and girlfriend together!
