    Hello, friends, how have you been? Its been exactly a month since my last update. The holidays have also come and gone. Quite a number of things happened, which was partly to blame for my month-long hiatus from this blog. Let me just sum it up in 4 words: holidays, rest, RSI and laryngitis. BUT! Its a new year, so lets leave them at that. Also, instead of starting anew, lets just pick up where we left off, shall we? This time, I bring you to the next stop in our road trip up north, to see to the famous Bangui Windmills up close.

    I guess it is safe to say that a trip to Ilocos will not be completed without visiting the picture worthy attractions offered by the Bangui Windmills. Those windmills in Burgos (Check : Burgos Windfarm and Kapurpurawan Rock Formation) might put those people with OCD on whack but those in Bangui will put them back in calm state due to its straightly aligned windmills along the shore.

    Second day in Ilocos! You can read about our first day here. And as I've mentioned in my previous post, I booked the tours thru our hotel. A tour guide was with us for this day and the next day. It was a jam packed day for us. Ganun talaga if you book tours, maybe next time we can DIY our tour na din. The problem with traveling with kids, schedules aren't always followed. Haha! I knew I have to be the one wake them up, feed them, change their clothes and fix our things for the day. So, I woke up extra early so I can eat breakfast peacefully at Cafe Bonita. Ha!
