Last April during Holy Week me and my family went to Batangas to visit my sister's mother in law. When we were there we have agreed to climb the mountain nearest to their house its called Mt. Malaraya, There were 8 stations in the mountain that we need to go through before we can reached the top most where there is a huge white cross. We have to register first on the station 1 for the climbers security. During our journey it was very exhausting but very exciting! your tiredness will vanished because of what you see so many trees, plants, flowers, insects and animals everywhere. You can smell the freshness of air and i cant help but to inhale deep because i know i cant have this fresh air in the city. On the 4th station you will find a figure of Mama Mary (grotto) and a flowing water, they said that it is a sacred place and we offer our prayers here. A lot more of walking and then finally we reached the top where you can find a very huge white cross. I was a very nice experience to climb a mountain..have you tried it?

Last year I too along with my husband and his friends, visited Rafting camp. We enjoyed a lot there. We climb a mountain and then jumped into the water. We did body surfing, rafting and rock climbing, etc. It was just fun, full of life. I was not tired at all. But when we come back I was feeling so tired and exhausted..:-)

I have tried it also in Holy week, because me and my friends have a (panata)0r maybe what you call sacrifice we go to Grotto in Binangonan, Rizal we spend the whole night there. But there is no station like you experience in Batangas we just go there to see the statue of Virgin Mary and also have the bonding to make stronger our friendship with each other.
