Kapurpurawan Rock

Burgos, Ilocos Norte

Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is situated in Burgos, Ilocos Norte. From the national highway, one will traverse a long winding dirty road. No public transportation goes inside the area so it is a must to have your own car rather than walking under the heat of the sun.

  • 9 Months Back In The North

    Our Tourism Global and Understanding class had a cultural exposure tour last year in Ilocos and I’m posting it super late because I can! Yes. The home of our late president, Ferdinand Marcos. I was so excited for this tour because 1. Ilocos is on my travel list 2. I wanted to take photos of the scenes in the North and 3. I needed a break from hell, aka school.

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 ...

  • The Great Amianan Southbound Ilocos Norte Part II

    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.

    Southbound, Here We Come!

    "Agyamanak, Manong!" yelled the old lady who alighted somewhere nearing the town of B ...
