North Luzon Road Trip



"Tara Na! Byahe Tayo!"

Vigan, Ilocos Sur; Fort Ilocandia, Ilocos Norte; Laoag ; Cape Bojeador Lighthouse; Bangui Windfarm; Pagudpud; Kaibigan Falls; Blue Lagoon; Tuguegarao City; Banaue Rice Terraces

This trip was a really memorable one for all of us :c)


taken at the famous Crisologo Street in Vigan city


Fort Ilocandia


Paoay Church (all the while we thought that this was the church on the 10 peso bill hihihi)


Saint William Church


view from the veranda of Malacañang of the North


Malacañang of the North with Labsydoo


Sta. Monica Church and Bell Tower in Sarat


Bacarra Bowing Tower
it's also a sinking bell tower but it's called the Bowing tower because the structure was leaning (like the tower of pisa) when a huge earthquake struck Ilocos Norte. At present, the top of the tower has already fell down and this is what's left of it. Most of the fallen parts are still surrounding the area.


tres marias with the South China Sea


Cape Bojeador Lighthouse



super scary experience just to reach the top of the lighthouse!


stucked at the Bangui Windmill Farm!
uhm.. to the left.. nope, to the right..


with Labsydoo at the Windfarm


Laughtrip at Pagudpud
i think it took us quite a while to get this shot because the huge waves were taking davis (our photographer) away..


Trekking towards the hidden falls


goofing around as we got to the falls


Kaibigan Falls


the Blue Lagoon is also considered as the Boracay of the North.. you can obviously see why


Patapat Bridge

this is the long curving road across the Pagudpud beach

"Golden Gate Bridge of the North"


Nuestra Señora de Piat in Tuguegarao City
