Windmills, sand dunes, light house, bell tower, rock formation ... and other attractions that you'll surely won't miss.
Ilocos is truly a great place to visit.
As we arrived going to Ilocos, i feel jittery because of excitement. in three days, we will experience to leave in our home and explore something that we'd never seen & do before. on our way i feel so drowsy, it was so cold in the bus that i couldn't get to sleep. plus the fact that it was raining on the outside. ( i'm also worried during our road trip due to the bad weather.) i'm sure everyone else feels the same way too. it was a long...trip.actually. until we finally came in. it was already 5 o'clock in the morning.
after a long day of trip, we went to Heritage Resort of Caoayan to have our lunch/breakfast. the food was so good, i remember the "pinakbet" where my uncle ( my auntie's husband ) used to cook for us in his own style since he lived before in pangasinan.
Then we went in Baluarte, owned by Mr. Chavit Singson. a well-known politician in the country. This place is so attractive & enjoyable as a tourist attraction & entertainment also. because it features gigantic dinosaurs, there are information about the animals. & if you want, you can also ride on a miniature horse with your friend.
The Cape Bojeador Lighthouse is just so tall that it gives the panoramic view of the south china sea. in this place, many artists had shoot there like a popular tv show, Walang hanggan(starring Coco Martin & Julia Montes). some scenes are capture there. wwooowwww..... i am so lucky! one of my idol ( JM ) have been there. i am so happy. :) and also, the horror movie Shake,Rattle & Roll ( starring Kathryn Bernardo & Louisse de los Reyes ). very nice place...really. i hope it doesn't have any scary story.

For me, getting there in Burgos, Kapurpurawan is much a lot of harder than in others. because the way to go in rock formation, it's like a rocky road. but once you get there, you will finally get the chance to see the view of all rock ages without thinking that you're tired. excellent!!!
One of my unforgettable embarrasing experience is when my doll shoes got damaged. and because of that, i wasn't able to use it again that's why that time, i need to bought a slipper & use it the whole time and take note, i am the only one not wearing a close shoes. i am so ashamed. well, i've learned my lessons enough.
After kapurpurawan, next is Bangui Windmills. The sea & the sand are approaching us to go near to the water. but unluckily, we need to get back in the bus as fast as we can so that we can go to our next destination. but before we leave, we make sure we've got something to have as a souvenir. we take pictures in the windmills, make jump shots, buy key chains. i already make video as we left the giant & unforgettable, windmills.
isn't that amazing?! when after you go to church, you can visit the Bantayan Bell Tower. this place is so wonderful that all tourist must have been see this heritage site. with my friends, going to the top of the tower, all i want to do is to shout, "i'm the queen of the world!!" (but of course, it's not allowed to that. Ha-ha). i just take the moment to be contented being there in that place. spend a lot of my time to explore as fast as we can. & make some moments lasts.
This place is surrounded with sand & seas...perfect for having an outing with families & friends. the food is so tasty & delicious. thanks to the lunch held in Plaza del mar, i recharged myself to explore the place.
Vigan is one of the best place to visit in Ilocos. because of the old structures of the museums, the landmarks of furnitures & antiques they made. & the delecacies you'll surely won't forget to buy. still, i am mesmerized of how they managed to maintain the city, of how long they preserved their culture.
This is one of those museums worth going to. There's enough information about his personal life & career. i got to know him better. seeing his body at the mausoleum is fine but the music inside makes me creepy, same with the flowers around. i really wonder if it's really lying there.
well, anyway. i was touching to still see the physical remains of President Ferdinand Marcos despite the so many years that passed since he died. visitors are reminded not to touch anything around the coffin.
breathe in, breath out. are you ready to take the dangerous activity?
not totally danger, but extraordinary adventure.
never forget to go in La paz sand dunes & experience the sand cruising, also known as "4 by 4 ride" & sand boarding.
experince the thrilling activities that you will enjoy (i'm sure of that.) just keep your hold tight & let you feel you are flying around the world.
