We had a four day road trip with my family and Louie's family in ilocos region. It's beautiful though it's extremely hot.
We spent most of the days in ilocos Norte where the windmill is. We also visited light house in there. Then our last day : the heritage city VIGAN:) it's lovely.
We visited the late President Marcos house in Locos, visited the Marcos Museum and had a chance to had a glimpse of his body. Too bad photos were not allowed so couldn't show you here.
Five years ago, we were able to visit Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur. It was my long-time dream to visit Ilocos but it was so far. At that time, my husband doesn't like long driving and he said if I wanted to visit Ilocos mag-eroplano daw kami. So when I saw the P12 seat sale of Cebu Pacific, I immediately bought tickets.
To make our life easier, I rented a van for this trip. At first, I was not sure if we can tour Laoag, Vigan and Pagudpud in three days but surprisingly, we were able to do Laoag, Vigan and Pagudpud in two days though it is like an amazing race trip. We had three kids in tow b ...

Truly, we will only realize the importance of someone or something once it is already out of sight. After graduating with a Master's Degree, I felt that I had nothing more to ask for. I had a good career, a loving family and a supportive boyfriend??"a simple yet happy life. With all the blessings I have been showered on, one could say my life was very content. Here's a complete Guide to Ilocos.
I was unaware that the happiness in my heart would be replaced soon by so much heartache that seemed to last forever. The news about my father's stage four cancer gave a shock to all of us. It was th ...
Ah! It's been a while since I wrote my last blog and I am here again. Last few weeks was crazy! I was kinda busy plus I've been to different places and one of those is my 3 days, 2 nights stay in Ilocos; Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte. (with my cousins!)
From Pampanga, I think the estimated travel time to Ilocos is 7-8 hrs via drive. Thanks to express way it will only take 8 hrs max cause before I think it's 16 hrs max if you will pass through the regular road. So we planned this trip, my cousins and I few months ago. We just looked from a travel agence offfering a package trip to different p ...
