    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!
