Water, Earth and Air of Ilocos Norte

While the capital city of Ilocos Sur boasts of colonial architecture and history, the towns of Ilocos Norte take pride in their greeneries and blue waters. For most travelers, Pagudpud is the main destination in the northern part of the Ilocos Region due to its fine and white sand beaches. If you are travelling from Vigan, it will take you around 3-4 hours to reach Pagudpud. But if you’re straight from Manila, it will be an estimate of 13-15-hour road trip. For those who can’t take such tiring trips but have the extra money, I believe airplane flights are available from Manila to Pagudpud.

FOOD REVIEW: CATALINO’S RESTAURANT

Long road trips are undeniably fun. From the traffic-free roads, the proud and tall trees, and the clear view of the sky… Isn’t it nice to have a glimpse of the simple rural life?

Quezon is one good province if you want to go roadtripping. There are various attractions waiting for you. Beach or mountain, it’s up to you. As for our squad, we chose to go beach bumming in Cagbalete Island in Mauban. After a night, we were already going back to Manila. It was already past lunchtime and we haven’t eaten anything. I googled top restaurants in Quezon, and the top spot of almost every list goes to Catalino’s Restaurant.
