We arrived in Manila at 3 P.M from Davao City and went directly to Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, a 12 hour-travel (my butt hurts I swear) via the NLEX in our hired van. A day with a van's fare rate cost more or less P7,000.00. I slept the whole night travel with a short trip to the comfort room twice. Long distance travels recommend for a neck pillow for co ...
Through the open windows of the regular provincial bus we took from Laoag City; the province of Ilocos, together with the houses getting lesser by the minute, and the landscape getting into full view, very much came alive before our own eyes. Though the 40-seater bus, filled with rowdy engagements, and even the fervent clucking of roosters echoing all over the crammed-up space full of locals all bound for several towns before Pagudpud, the almost two-hour trip was all worth it.

Ilocos Norte has a charm of its own. It has natural wonders, a colorful history and most of all, the warmth of its people. You could travel back in time at the Paoay and the Bacarra Churches, and marvel at the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse. You can be awed by the Kapurpurawan Rock Formations, the Burgos Wind Farm and the Paoay sand dunes.
It was raining when Peewee and I went to these place. Nevertheless the scenery was still amazing.

Last January 22-25, 2017, we had a vacation in Ilocos Region. All the long drive and stress were worth it! Had fun a lot and I had a good relaxation.
It took us 5 hours to reach Ilocos Norte from Vigan, Ilocos Sur(where we were staying). Travelling to Ilocos was not so easy if you'll drive nor commute(it's easier if you'll take a plane, but it's no thrill! BOO!). It took us 11-12 hours to reach Ilocos Region because it's our first time. But if you're already familiar with the place and you won't have a stopover, I think you'll reach the place for 10 hours.

The Bangui Wind Farm is perhaps the most well-known wind farm in the Philippines, mainly for being the first of its kind in the country and notably for being installed on the shoreline, making it distinct from the usual elevated terrain installations. (Although, recently, the Pililla Wind Farm, which is in my home province, Rizal, is getting quite popular as well which I am hoping to visit in the future.)
After our adventures in Pagudpud, it was now time to visit the Bangui wind turbines and see them up clo ...
The Industrial and Technological Revolutions that started in the early 1800s paved the way for our modern way of living. Machines, electricity, motorized vehicles, and automated production processes replaced laborious and inefficient human-powered methods. However, to obtain the means to power humanity's machinery, we exploited and harmed Mother Nature. It seemed that technology and nature will be branded as adversaries. But in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, the opposite is true. Technology and nature are symbiotic to each other.
Following our throat-wrenching yet exciting 4X4 ride in the La Paz San ...
