AFFORDABLE PLACE TO STAY IN BATANES: Time Travel Lodge in Basco, Batanes

During my latest trip to Batanes last January 2014, Marfel's Lodge, my favorite lodge in Basco is fully-booked on the weekend that the we arrived. Ate Fe who manages Marfel's Lodge and Ryan, our tour guide suggested that we stay at Time Travel Lodge.
