Travelling has and have been one of my hobbies. If you follow my social media accounts then you would probably know that I am a travel buff, whether within the City and Region or outside the country. It is one of my many escapes to destress and unwind. My other resort to keep a clear mind and mental state. My good friend and I decided to book a tour to welcome our other friend who came home from States. Nothing like a good old “gala” in the Phils to feel that Pinoy vibes. Searched through facebook available travel and tours and found an affordable package that covers transportation, accommodation and daily breakfast. For those of you who are curious about the travel and tour, don’t ask me cause I wouldn’t recommend it anyway (details to be explained in my next blogs). We’ve decided to go to Ilocos since we’ve never been there and heard great things about that place. Well, it never disappointed.
We traveled 9 hours or more but it was all worth it! The Paoay church first greeted us with it’s majestic aura.
After, we went to Marcos Museum and found great historical artifacts and memorabillas about the Former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos. Haven’t got any photos of the memorabillas due to limited time but took some nice videos which would be up soon on my youtube channel.
Outside of Malacanang of the North. Someone’s really excited to go in!
Malacanang ti Amianan also known as Malacanang of the North may have that rustic feel but it never dulled its beauty.
This two-storey mansion is overlooking the Paoay Lake.
Dragon fruit ice cream for the extremely hot weather to cap off half of the day.
For my wardrobe, I’ve chosen this short sleeve polo from Baleno cause its fabric feels breezy and comfortable. Khaki shorts from Penshoppe to compliment the dark colored top. Changed and freshen up in a public restroom cause we haven’t yet checked in at the hotel. All the while I thought we were headed straight to our accommodation but instead we went directly to our first itinerary. It pays to be a boy scout. Hand Salute. So far so good, Ilocos. Naimbag nga adlaw indeed.
Watch out for my next posts to know how Ilocos continues to amaze me of its magnificence.
