Finally, our Ilocos trip! Although it was too late, I realized that this trip was unforgettable and so I decided to make a travelogue about it. hihi. I really love summer because it really sets my whole being to go outdoors! I especially love my job because it sent us out to try these things this season. Anyway, not much of the outdoors are here yet but everything seems so fun.
We left Pampanga via private van on Wednesday morning. So practically, we spent almost the whole day on the road.
Here are some photos of the places we visited. It was indeed a privilege to see the beauty of God’s creation from such places. 🙂
These are windmills at Bangui Farm in Ilocos Norte. These giants were worth-seeing, almost surreal. I couldn’t get enough of the view that I’d loved to go back there just to see them again. 🙂
Vigan’s Hidden Garden where there are several varieties of potted plants, shrubs and herbs. I actually bought ginger turmeric for my mother for it has a lot of health benefits. 🙂
At Juan Luna Shrine
Animals encounter at Baluarte Zoo in Vigan, Ilocos Sur
Amazing view on top of the Towering Cape Bojeador
Of course we will not miss Paoay Church. This church really has a beautiful structure. Pay attention to its huge buttresses. I’ve been to several churches but this church made an impression to me. 🙂
Amazing how one’s body craves places like this. The shore, crashing of waves, cool water and the sun on my face. Oh how I love every season of life. 🙂
Vigan’s Dancing Fountain Show, I was expecting to be wowed by this show and indeed I was! Throughout the show, laser and lights synched to popular music illuminate the fountain jetting through the plaza. What a beautiful show! 🙂
Calle Crisologo, Vigan City – This old house made me feel like I was travelled back in the 16th century. The overflow of antique and unique things from one store to another will delight you even more.
Ilocos is a place that you should add on your vacation list. Remember, be sure you are prepared for an 8-10 hours long drive. haha. I can’t wait to go again and explore more of the other towns next time!! Have a favored day y’ll!! 🙂
