3rd day of our Ilocos Vacation! We woke up later than usual, we were a bit tired na haha. Again BOS and I took turns with our breakfast and kids. Good thing I brought cereals like Koko Krunch and fresh milk (our room has a mini ref) and plastic containers so they can eat in the car. This was our last day of tours! We went around Laoag City's famous landmarks and tourist spots before heading to Vigan for lunch.
Hola Espana! We are clearly not in Spain. We are still in the Philippines ladies and gents but doesnt everyone agree with me? Calle Crisologo really has that "Espanya Feels". It is not only an instagrammable place but it is more than meets the eye. It holds a lot of memories and history.
I havent had a chance to see my grandfather as he passed away a decade before I was given birth he is a pure Ilocano born in 1890s. Ocols were originally from Ilocos and I havent been in the place nor know any relative in the area. When the F8 group has finally settled to visit Vigan and Pagudpud, I instantly included myself in the list, excited to discover the pride of the northern region and hopefully a family trace.
