Sneak Peek: Sagada Mini-Adventure series

My first time to reach the rugged landscape of Mt. Province proved to be a worthwhile getaway last All Soul’s Day weekend. Most of the plans were jeopardized due to the recent rage of the typhoon so we crossed out the Batad trip and decided to maximize our stay in Sagada. Unfortunately, my supposed-to-be 5-day … Continue reading

Rat race

Two weeks ago, my sedentary life has ended. From the slow paced life of internet and afternoon naps, my world was shaken by the day-to-day waking hours before sunrise. To make things short, I started my first job. As expected, it will also be an everyday struggle to commute, because I am now one of … Continue reading

Vapor nomads

All photos were taken during our trip back from Kabigan Falls, Pagudpud. Heavy photo post ahead 🙂   These scenes reminded me of Manuel Arguilla’s “How my brother Leon brought home a wife.” The sun was in our eyes, for it was dipping into the bright sea. The sky was wide and deep and very … Continue reading

Further north Pagudpud – day 2 at Saud Beach + Kabigan Falls

It was already 10 am when we left Laoag city and rode a bus to Pagudpud. It was a 2-hour ride coupled with scenic views along the way, We saw the windmills, open beaches of Burgos and the lighthouse. We thought we can conquer these places in one day but nooo. We arrived in Pagudpud town … Continue reading

Ilocandia – day 1 in Laoag

I have heard a lot of great things from up North — the pristine beaches, massive churches which hold great historical value, bizarre landforms and interesting stories. That’s why last summer I did not hold back to grab the opportunity in exploring Ilocos Norte. [FILM for this roll: Fujicolor 100] We departed Manila last Sunday, … Continue reading
