Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Baguio: Food, Friends, and Events

I've been to Baguio a couple of times and have shared my experiences in this blog (Baguio-Bontoc Adventure and Places to Visit in Baguio).

This particular visit is special because I am going there to do what I love, share with educators what I know and how they could maximize Google Apps.

Day 1

Jomar and I left Quezon City at exactly 11:00PM riding the Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc. A review about the experience in a separate blog post. We arrived a little after 3:00AM which makes the travel time just 4 hours between Manila and Baguio! We took a cab going to my favorite hotel in Baguio, Azalea Residences. The person at the front desk said that they have to charge us for two nights already since there's an early check-in charge. I was too tired and sleepy to argue, even if I am worried since I have a limited budget for this trip. I paid using my card but it seems that there card reader isn't working properly but I informed the front desk personnel that as I check my account balance online, the amount was already deducted. He said, he'll confirm with their accounting the following day and we could already go to our room.

After an additional 3 hours of sleep, Jomar and I walked going to Berkeley School. It's the venue for the Google Apps for Education Baguio training.
