Lost Somewhere in Bulacan

Have you ever found yourself in an offbeaten path, phone batteries low and with no signal, and to top it all Google Maps was also acting up?

I have. This weekend en route to a farmstay in the province of Bulacan. We got off course when the bridge leading to our destination was closed off for repair. In desperate haste we took a detour, and found ourselves traveling through half-paved roads in the beginning, to dirt road and then eventually nowhere. Google Maps said the road was unnamed. There were no other cars, lamp posts, no one. For a minute I remembered horror movies I watched back in the 90s like Jeepers Creepers.

Luckily there was a bit of great scenery.

And then a few minutes later farmers coming from the opposite direction rode by – our chance to ask for directions. Turned out we missed the right turn a few miles back.

We lived through it. It was a bit of an adventure, really. Looking back now we could always turn around (and probably argue along the way back). It was quite a relief to finally get to Numana Farm where we would be staying for the weekend. All turned out just fine.

No road trip would be complete without a few navigational hiccups, after all. That’s always part of the fun!
