ILOCOS SUR, May 18,2016
Arrive early stop over morning at the streets of Calle Crisologo in Vigan, Ilocos Sur… Why? Because our driver said to take a walk and picture taking while the sky is in eve… So the purpose of it was to capture the night scene of the street and pictured out the street itself like in other post pictures of other past travelers. How cool our driver had a quick thinking about that stuff!
So much for an early vintage items.
The sun is rising a bit.
Restoration of vintage Spanish era houses are still on.
Me in a cool bench just to have a chill from the long hours of sleep while we were on the road… Sorry for the morning face though. 😭✌🏻️
Breakfast at Hidden Garden Restaurant.
When it says ‘hidden garden’, it has truly had a garden that hid in a restaurant.
I ate “Bagnetsilog” because I was in Ilocos, I am longing for their ‘Bagnet‘ which is a crispy pork of their version… And of course, I don’t forget to order a cup of coffee as my morning routine wasn’t complete without it.
After we ate breakfast, we visit the ‘Pinagburnayan‘ where clay pots and jars are made… And watch a little demo about pottery making by the locals there.

When in May at the peak of the summer here in the Philippines where we headed to the North, specifically, Ilocos Sur/Ilocos Norte. We decided to have and pay for a tour/travel package to that provinces, but we have only paid for a van ride and a driver. It was almost a “do-it-yourself” tour because the driver explains us that we only paid for a trip that consist of a van and a driver that knows where to stay, where to eat and know the destinations of the itinerary package. But overall, we enjoyed and had fun touring around.
It was a three days trip, so expect to soon more photos will be posted.
