Celebrating 18 Years of Friendship Up North

“So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.” -Hellen Keller

This is yet another late travel blog. But I am more than happyย to share with you my 14 hours reunion trip (Manila-Tarlac-La Union-Vigan-Pagudpod) with my beloved high school friends. ๐Ÿ˜€

There are lots of historical places in the Northern part of the Philippines that most Filipinos might not have the luxury of time to visit yet. This is my third time in Vigan, first to facilitate a leadership training at St. Paul College of Ilocos Sur, second time with boyfriend and his friend who is Chavit Singson’s nephew (so we got the chance to explore his mansion at Baluarte). But I must say, travelling with my high school friends is a totally different fun experience.

The Sand Dunes was also an awesome experience! We loved it!

The weekendย was really a short time to spend with the friends Iย missed so much, considering the long travel hours to get there. Haha! But we sure did collect great memories again. With all those unlimited picture taking and Instagram updates? Who wouldn’t?

At the Bell Tower and Kapurpurawan Rock Formation

Nothing beats spending quality time with people who knows you too well that you can always be yourself and still be loved. We promise to travel again this 2015, especially when one of them comes back from abroad again.

No dull moments with these funny ladies

Go travel with the people you enjoy spending your precious time with. Ilocos Sur is a great place to explore. It is definitely more fun in the Philippines!
