Ilocos Norte: Like you’ve never seen before

Time and Tide

I took a gazillion photos over the weekend– all within Saturday. I don’t even know where to start. Checked-in at Casa Consuelo in Pagudpud with my bestie Leehiua Lu, who was spending her birthday in Adams, a town in the northeastern side of Norte. Let’s start with the travel magazine kind of photos:) This is what happens when two besties travel on an SUV all by themselves. Will be posting more in the days to follow. So proud of the place I call  home — Ilocos Norte! In my more than three years of blogging, I’ve scratched only the surface.
