On our 1st anniversary as a couple, we celebrated in Ilocos. That was the 7th of January. Its a year-long wait but we've just planned our itinerary weeks prior to our trip. There're a lot of packages offered online. But we felt it's better if we do DIY because just looking at their itin, it's exhausting plus we want privacy.
It's my second time there and Chi's first. But it's him who planned and created our itin.
We left Cubao at exactly 10pm on a deluxe bus bound to Laoag. We arrived there at 8:30am the next day, made a quick stop at fastfood chain to fuel ourselves up and at 9am rode a ...
One simply cannot explore the past in 3 days. "There's so much detail and complications there that cannot be understood in a short period of time", folks might say. Perhaps the theory is true, but it didn't stop us from experiencing a taste of it!
Since my childhood days were spent mostly far away from my mother and without any siblings to play with, it has always been my dream to spend an out-of-town vacation with my family. Just last month, I turned that 20-year old dream into a reality at last! From Saudi Arabia, I flew 5,000 miles to spend a month-long annual vacation in the Philippines ...
The Philippines is known for its beaches and friendly people. No matter where visitors come from, Filipinos welcome them with open arms. This may be the reason behind foreigners' undying appreciation of the Philippines.

Many of the better-known places are swarmed by tourists and locals alike, but there are other hidden gems that are underrated but definitely worth the road trip.

No, the name of this waterfalls in Barangay Balaoi, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte isn't derived from the Tagalog 'kaibigan' or friend. According to our local guide, the name is derived from the word 'kabig' which in this sense, means [to] collect. More specifically, it pertains to how the water from the streams coming from the falls is collected and then shifted for the irrigation in the area.
Most of the times, we don't get to know and hear the story about the origin of a place's name and are left to make guesses.
Story behind the name 'Pagudpud'? Clue: Pagod and Pudpud.
