On February 21, 2017, we set foot on the northern part of Ilocos region in the Philippines. Biyaheng Norte, as I call it, has been staying in my bucket list for quite a while. Fortunately, my better half amazingly brought me here.
We came all the way from Cagayan de Oro to Ilocos Norte with an estimated distance of 722 miles. A plane trip from Cagayan de Oro to Manila took us an hour to arrive. We took a van from Manila to Vigan, Ilocos Norte for around eight hours of land trip. The whole trip was a bit long but thanks a lot to our assigned driver who made it a bit of “Fast and Furious” kind of driving. We felt safe though.
