Not to bore you guys with words, here's how our first day in Ilocos went. Enjoy! Comments after! :)
|First stop: Bantay Church!|
|Bantay Bell Tower|
|Me and Jac! :)|
|Me, Mam Rhea, Greggy Mehaj and Jessa|
|Next stop: Burgos National Museum|
|So nice seeing kalesas everywhere! It's like their second mode of trasportation next to tricycles and motorcycles!|
|Inside the Burgos Museum|
|3rd stop: Baluarte ni Singson. |
BTW, notice how this pic is on fish-eye mode? It's just one of the many effects my new camera, Samsung Wifi WB150F, has!
|The thing with Ilocos is that almost all of their establishments is structured like this: old and Spanish-inspired/columned buildings. |
Even their fast food chains are structured like this. Awesome!
|4th stop: Vigan Heritage Village|
|Common souvenirs in Ilocos: Ethnic bags|
|And of course: Ref magnets and Vigan purses!|
|Saw this dessert shop in Vigan. I dunno if it's the same as Dulcinea here in Manila.|
|Me, Mam Rhea and Pam|
|Seeeee! Look at their fast food chain!|
|Last stop that day: Paoay Church|
Of all the places in Ilocos, this had to be the one you should not miss out!
The view is, like, the perfect example of a picturesque photo with an eerie feel to it,
what with the calm and silent ambiance.
|Another effect on my new digicam: the Split Shot!|
|Touchdown, Fort Ilocandia!|
|Chillin' like a villain outside the hotel.|
|Dinner at Palacio de Laoag.|
|Toying with Jac's dslr :)|
And that's how our first day went. Will blog about the rest of the tour soon! Got tons of school stuff to do so please bear with me if I can't post regularly. Hehehehe.
