Cape Bojeador Lighthouse or Burgos Lighthouse News
It didnt take us long to reach our next destination in Ilocos Norte. Weve finally entered Burgos and before we get the chance to see the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, we had a quick stop over to one of the most notable places in Ilocos Norte ~ The Cape Bojeador Lighthouse. Lighthouses never failed to amuse me as they offer this unique picture-worthy atmosphere and a refreshing scenery that you can simply marvel. The Parola in Tanay Rizal and the Lighthouse in Sisiman Mariveles were both equally stunning but the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse is something really special.
So many places to explore and it is only day 2 of our Ilocos expedition. To start our day and make use of our idle time while waiting for the co-tourists, we had a quick stroll to take some snaps around the area of our meeting place. It is really refreshing to be in a foreign city. Thats why I love travelling because you get to witness locals say things differently and do things differently. A whole new experience of culture and meeting new people. After that brief exploration and contemplation, we made our way to Pagudpud!

A And D Travels Ilocos Vacation Part 2 - Pagudpud Tour, Patapat Viaduct, Bangui Windmills, Kapurparawan Rock Formation And More
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!

Pagudpud Beach is definitely the king in the North in terms of beaches. After 14 hours of endless roads, (including stop overs), we finally arrived in Pagudpud. This beach is a haven for surfers and families that want to unwind from the bustling life in urban cities. Sunsets here in Pagudpud is very scenic. We will definitely come back!
