Ilocandia trip

​A solid backpack experience with my little sister. A trip where i learn how to deal with different types of people, culture and beliefs. 1st time mag travel na kaming dalawa lang na walang kasamang matanda. Nakakainis sa una dahil mayat maya ang text ng nanay at tatay mo. “Nasan na kayo?” “bat di mo sinasagot ang text o tawag ko?” Etc.. Thats fine. At the end of the day marerealize mo 1st time nyu kase umalis na kayo lang at parehas pang babae.. gabi pa.. so understandable.. had a great experience.. 
Being on a 7-8k budget diy bagpacking for 2 not bad.

Imagine its an ilocos trip maybe missed the beach, sand dunes and patapat bridge. Ok lang di mo naman mapupuntahan lahat ng lugar ng 2days and 1night. Hitik na hitik sa kaalaman yung napuntahan namin. History, culture, food, at iba pa. 24hrs travel. None stop ang motion.
Marami ding museums ang under renovation ngayon. Nag hahanda para sa dagsa ng tao this ber months. Anyways di man napuntahan lahat worth it naman. limited time but the experience was soooo unforgetable. Maybe next time mag iinvest naman ako sa ilocos beach experience. May susunod pa naman. 
But it was a great experience meeting the barao family after how many years. Atleast napasaya nila kame at napasaya din namin sila sa pagbisita namen. Ok lang masakit sa balakang ang byahe, mabaliw-baliw ka sa tagal ng byahe. Seeing them smile WORTH IT.. Lahat pati pagod mo nawawala.. 😉

“Dati pangarap ko lang sya puntahan nung napuntahan ko na sya para akong nasa cloud9.. it was an awesome trip. Worth it and memorable.. i went on a trip for a purpose and it was unexplainable experience”
