Abra and Apayao, my 62nd and 63rd Provinces

This is a 3-day trip in Northern Luzon that happened last May 26-28, 2012. Together with my friend, we visited the provinces of Abra and Apayao, my 62nd and 63rd provinces! We also had a side trip in Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte as we go along this trip. We had fun trying out local delicacies, visiting churches, ancestral houses, parks, capitol buildings and meeting new friends. Plus, I also had a chance to surf at the blue lagoon beach in Pagudpud. Woohoo!

Here's a summary of the places we visited and the things we did on this 5-day trip:

Bangued and Tayum, Abra

Sta. Maria, Bantay and Vigan, Ilocos Sur

Pudtol, Apayao

Laoag and Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte
  • Surfing and Swimming at Blue Lagoon, Pagudpud
  • Re-visited Laoag City (Capitol, Church, Park and Sinking Bell Tower)
  • Dined at "Dap-ayan Ti Ilocos" for Laoag Empanada

That's it for now. More photos and detailed posts on these soon! Cheers!
