Ilocos Norte 2015

My family and I went to Ilocos Norte to actually pay for our land tax in Burgos, Ilocos Norte and of course, to do some touristy things. It took us 9 hours (with lots of stop over) till we reached Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte where my uncle lives. Since we arrived 12 midnight, all we did was ate, slept and prepared ourselves for the next day.

Pagudpud - Pagudpud is highly known for it's white sand beaches. We woke up early and went to see it. There are lots of resorts there but since we won't be staying for long we just settle in an open area. The place was windy and it perfect for chilling. How I wish we can stay there for a week. Then we drive until we reached our next destination which is Bangui.

Bangui - It is where you can see lots of these huge windmills that supplies most of the province's electricity. I was able to see them finally! I can now tick this off to my bucket list :))
Bangui is obviously windier because of these giants. I like how they are lined up just along the seashore.

Kapurpurawan - Just drive a few more minutes and you'll reach Kapurpurawan which is located in Burgos. It is known for its creamy white rock formation.

When we finally reached the municipal hall and paid our tax, we then went to visit our land. From our view, we can still see lots of windmills! We still had few stop over to some cafe but my phone gave up on me. We were supposed to go to Vigan too but it was getting late and I still have my duty to attend to. Oh well, there's always a next time :)

  2. This place is simply breathtaking! I wish I could explore the grounds and seas of Ilocos Norte soon. It's beautiful even without trying, and I swear it's giving me heartaches just trying to watch its splendor!
