Day 2: Ilocos Norte

Our day 2 in the North is more of exploring the province. It’s more of the nature than the city proper. I think that’s one of the reasons why we should travel here in the Philippines, there are so many beaches, rock formations and other God-made scenery.

Our first stop was in Bacarra Bell Tower. The rocks where we were standing were actually the rocks that came from the bell tower. And yes, there are still rocks on top of it!

And mind you, these rocks are really huge.

Next stop was in a Dragon Fruit Farm. Nothing much to do in here because it’s not the season of harvesting dragon fruits, hehe. Though we see some of these fruits while roaming around the area.

We headed to the Cape Bojeador lighthouse after. We have to do lots of walking, but upon reaching the light house, the view was really worth capturing.

Next stop was probably my favorite destination of the day, Kapurpurawan Rock Formation.

This requires long walk as well but you have the choice of riding a horse going to the Rock Formation. You also have the option to rent out hats like we did! :)

Pictures were as good as postcards!! Very beautiful view, it also overlooks the newly installed Bangui Windmills. These rocks were formed by the waves as shared by our tourist guide. I love how natural the beauty of our country is! Nothing can really beat our nature. Just lovely.

And of course, our tired but fulfilled faces after that mini adventure.

The Bangui Windmills was just a few minutes away from the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation. Who would have thought that I’ll be seeing the places that I was just seeing in my books when I was just in Grade School? :)

The windmills were really big! And you get a bit of excitement everytime you see the fan moving, haha!

Our last destination was in Pagudpud. Originally, the plan was to visit Pagudpud first. But we wanted to enjoy the beach for the rest of the day so Ms. Jacque, who organized our itinerary, was really nice and rearranged our schedule. That’s why I call our tour, a customizeable tour. Thank you, Tita Jacque! :)

We also stopped by the Patapat Viaduct on our way home.
