Cold Flames

For those of you who are curious about my fiancée, here is Crissy’s debut blog post!

Lost in invisible cities

My journey to Mount Pulag – also known as theplayground of the godswas very enthralling! Climbing Luzon’s highest peak and the third highest in the Philippines at 2,922 MASL was extraordinary butclimbing it with ‘the one’ – priceless!

Long before my fiancè, Steve arrived in the Philippines from United Kingdom, we already set the date for this climb, my twenty-fifth mountain and his first. Ever since I started climbing in 2014, I promised myself to climb this mountain with the one and now ready to share it as my first blog post because we already announced our engagement, I didn’t want to jinx it.

Almost every Filipino mountaineer has listed this mountain in their bucket list…

    Hi, Crissy, nice finally to meet you! Well, you know what they say, “Climb every mountain!” I’m glad you and Steve have found each other, and I think and hope you’re going to be very happy together. I hope this is the first of many posts that you and he do together. Nice mountains!

      Haha, if anything I think our dishevelled look makes the scenery more beautiful.

    Ste J, I canNOT believe how my life has been going that I never got back here to find out what’s been up with you! I know I was shocked when I discovered you got married! lol I wonder if I’ll ever be able to catch up on all I’ve missed with your personal posts, but I’m hoping to. God bless you both and a very belated CONGRATULATIONS!!!! 😀 😀 😀 oxox

      Thank you very much! It has been a while my friend, I hope you are doing well. As for me, well as you see, new wife, new life, and new continent. Everything has changed but it is exhilarating to see what has changed since January.
