Ilocos Summer Preview

Ilocos Tomatoes

My summer has officially started with a road trip to La Union. I’m saving more exclusive space for the opening of the newest hideaway, Maritoni Bali Suites and Villas, owned by good friends Tony and Mary Teng, the same owners of Macy’s Diner and Hotel Tiffany in Laoag, just a little south off surfing spot San Juan.


Meanwhile, take a look at my new discoveries. Went with the guys to burn some incense at the Ma-cho Temple (in San Fernando) and headed to Halo-Halo de Iloko before going back home. However. Reny and I were not rushing, so we climbed up the Sta. Maria Church, another UNESCO World Heritage Site in Ilocos Sur. And then sunset at Suso Beach beckoned. The beach brought to mind memories of childhood travels with my mom and dad.
