2008 Nov: Ilocos, Philippines: Day 2: Photoholic

2008 Nov: Ilocos, Philippines: Day 2: Photoholic

Next day, our wake-up call is 6am. We took our breakfast and by 7am, we already boarded the bus for a trek going to Kabigan Falls. We thought it would be just an easy trek, but we passed by around 4 small streams and 3 more deep streams with strong waves. Good thing we have helpful guides to keep us safe on crossing the strong water waves.

After, we passed by some rock formation again and go straight to Maira-ira Blue Lagoon.


We again stayed for a short photo-op on Patapat Viaduct and Agua Grande.

We were not allowed to swim on the beaches we visited due to big and strong waves. Thus, we go back to Saud Beach (Polaris Beach House) to enjoy the sand and clear water.

By 3pm, we’re ready to depart Pagudpod and go ahead to Vigan. It was another long bus ride with a few stops.

Finally, we reached Villa Angela for our dinner. We took our dinner outside the old house. But walking along the secret passage and checking out the antic pieces - you’ll surely feel being part of scary scenes on movies.

We started the Vigan Walking Tour on the Vigan Plaza where all pink lights are hanged on trees.
Few more steps and finally we reached Calle Crisologo. Here we stayed for more than 2 hours to do some shopping and a lot of night shots!


On our way to Manila, we drop by Marsha’s Delicacies to buy some pasalubong. By around 6.30am, we again the experienced the traffic and bustling sound of the Metro!

I acknowledged our kuyas, titos and titas who were there to prepare our food, drove us to our destinations safely and take care of us during the whole trip. Happy to meet all the participants and joiners on this tour, to listen to your stories and to laugh with all of you. Thanks to my sis, and friends janel and gelo for joining me on this trip. Big thanks to Jaja, Mef, Tupe and Leai for making this weekend a very special one.
