ILOCOS TOUR Day 1

First Day.

Date: April 10, 2015

Time Check: 7AM – 7:30AM

Location: Baluarte, Vigan City Zoo

Good News: No Entrance Fee! Pagpasok mo palang dito, una mong mapapansin ay ang mga dinosaurs. Siguro, eto sa isip ko lang ah, kung nabubuhay tayo sa panahon ng mga dinosaurs. Siguro, kasing laki at tangkad din natin sila. Pero hindi. 🙂 There’s also a Safari Gallery there but unfortunately, it was still under construction when we went there. So, we haven’t got a chance to visit the gallery. Other than that, it’s a typical zoo with birds, deer, peacocks, ducks, and etc. The only thing that captured our attention was the golden mansion of Mr. Chavit Singson that is located inside and from our view the mansion was still not complete and It’s currently under renovation.

Time Check: 7:46AM – 8:45AM

Location: Bantay Bell Tower

This is a historic and well-maintained place. But sadly, we haven’t got a chance to see the beautiful view from the top because we only have limited time to stay here and it’s too crowded inside the tower and too hot that morning.  So, after took some pictures, we went directly to visit the Bantay Church.

In Bantay Church, we prayed and thanked God for giving us the opportunity to visit this place. 🙂 Thank you Lord!

Time Check: 10:36AM – 11:05AM

Location: Marcos Museum & Mausoleum

Bukod sa tinikman namin ang dragon fruit juice dito, we also got a chance to see the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ remains. We are not allowed to take pictures inside but the image remained clear in our memories.

You can also buy dragon fruit juice worth Php 35.00. Lasa siyang dragon fruit. (Kahit di pa talaga ako nakatikim ng dragon fruit.) I’m with Niña, my honey’s best friend.

Time Check: 12:06PM – 12:48PM

Location: Paoay Church

Before going to this place, we took time to eat first. We never noticed, na Inabot na kami ng tanghalian. We just ate nearby the Marcos Museum. Then, go directly to Paoay Church. Based from my short research, Paoay Church is one of UNESCO heritage site in the Philippines with its unique baroque architecture. Believe me or not, from every angles of this church, I can see that this place is wonderfully photogenic. You will agree. Right?

Time Check: 1:12PM – 1:59PM 

Location: Malacañang of the North

There’s an entrance fee worth P30.00 per person. We said “Masaya na kami sa labas at maganda naman ang view dito eh”. Until now, we were really asking ourselves, bakit di kami pumasok? Php 30.00 lang naman. Eheh! Siguro, our eyes are tired already and need to rest for a short while to see more beautiful places Ilocos has to offer that will happen in a bit, especially Bangui Windmills. 🙂

Time Check: 3:32PM – 4:10PM 

Location: Cape Bojeador Light House

When we went there, the light house was still under renovation. Therefore, we heard noises from the ongoing construction. But the noise won’t let us destruct  our experiences to see the scenic view from the top of this captivating light house. Just a tip for everyone, be very careful when going up and down the staircases because it was too steep.

Time Check: 4:21PM – 5:07PM 

Location: Kapurpurawan Rock Formation

Ilang shots nalang at halos lahat ng gadgets naming dala for capturing photos and videos ay malolobat na. Time to save some batteries lalo na’t mamaya na namin makikita ang Bangui Windmills. Well in fact, on our way to Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, we saw some of the windmills already. But there’s a certain place where the tourists can stay for long and have a picture picture with the giant windmills. 🙂

Time Check: 05:40PM – 6:20PM 

Location: Bangui Windmills

This was one of the best days of our lives. Our hearts skipped a beat when we saw these giant windmills. Can’t believe that after years of dreaming of being here and have a picture with them. Finally, it happened and it was real. The long stretch of windmills was picturesque. Thank you Lord for giving us the opportunity to see your wonderful creations.

IMG_4651
I wanna travel the world with you. Go to every country, every city, take pictures, and be happy. 🙂
