Up North Trip Day 2 – La Union, Vigan, Ilocos Sur

It was January 15 and we woke up early since we wanted to catch the sunrise from the most coveted resort in all of La Union, Thunderbird. Their facilities are amazing. The view from their location is outstanding, no wonder the rate of the hotel’s sky high. See the early morning view? Love it! Love it!

After the trip from the resort, we had back to the house to eat our breakfast. Thanks to Toni’s mom it was so amazing! I love the longanisa together with the sukang Ilocos (vinegar from Ilocos). I also love the danggit and fried fish. After breakfast, we rested for a while then went to Sebay to try surfing the waves! Only Malen and I tried the surfing lesson for an hour. The money was all worth it. Believe me. So if you have the chance to go to La Union, make sure that you will have the chance to try surfing, and even if you don’t know how you have to take a one time lesson from the local, fun and experience surfers.

After surfing, we went back to Toni’s hacienda and took a bath. We are on our way to Ilocos Sur but before we drove there, we have to try the famous Fiesta Casino. Yup, I lost P200 from playing the slot machine. I think it’s only Malen who did not loose money and made at least couple of hundreds. After that we went back to Toni’s place and drove to Ilocos.

We made a short stop to experience how beautiful and romantic nights at Vigan are. It will make you want to hug and kiss your special someone, believe me, coz it made me. Make sure to bring your camera who can shot beautiful night pictures and you will get a lot to remember.

Thanks to Mario’s relatives for the warm acceptance and letting us stay there.
