My ideal Nuffnang summer is a trip to the Ilocos Region (Vigan, Laoag and Pagudpud) with no other than Sef. I love to travel, take pictures of old buildings and spend a day at the beach. This Ilocos Trip would surely combine beach life with photography.

Since there is no direct trip from Manila to Pagudpud, Sef and I will travel by bus to Vigan first. We’ll take pictures of this historic Spanish colonial town, hear mass at the Vigan Cathedral and visit various museums, old houses, churches and pottery shops. Our itinerary would include the Baluarte Open Zoo, Hidden Garden, Padre Burgos Museum, and Bantay Church.
Our next stop would be Laoag (capital of Ilocos Norte) and we’ll visit places like Patapat Viaduct, Bangui Windmills, Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, Baroque Church of Sta. Maria and of course the town of Pagudpud, which is famous for its white sand beaches. We’ll take two important items with us to make sure we won’t get ourselves sunburn:
“Schick. Free your skin.”
“Banana Boat Sunscreen Lotion. We’ve got you covered.”
I haven’t tried these two products yet but this Ilocos Trip would certainly be the best time to try these out. I would surely enjoy putting sunscreen lotion to Sef’s back.
This trip would probably take 3 days for us to enjoy all these historic places. Most probably we’ll take this trip after the Holy Week (April 2-8, 2012). We’ll take a Farinas bus to Vigan and we’ll leave around 10PM. The estimated time of travel is 8 hours so we’ll probably be in Vigan the next day.
More details of the trip would probably be discussed in the next posts but hopefully this plan would push through. This Ilocos Trip would definitely be our ideal Nuffnang summer!
