From South to North of Ilocos: Patapat Viaduct to Bangui Wind Farm

Our last destinations in Ilocos was the mini waterfall near the road going to Cagayan Valley and the Bangui wind farms wherein my macho called it electric fan. hehehe.

Though this was the 3rd or 4th time that I went to Ilocos, this was the first time I went to this mini waterfall. The water is cold as ice and yeah, it’s drinkable. My cousin tried to fill a 5 gallon container, few had reactions about my cousin’s doing, but being an Escalona (again) we always have witty comebacks that the only thing you have to do is to hate us or laugh with us. And by the way, it has a little grotto too, we visited it and prayed.

You may wonder why my little macho had few pictures, well, being my son, he is also sleepy so yeah, he’s inside the van and sleeping. hehehe.

After a few pics in the mini waterfall in the boundary of Cagayan Valley and Ilocos Norte we leave the place and decided to go to the windmill farm for our last destination before going home.

I don’t know why but I love taking pictures with the deserted place and me on the middle. It’s like (for me) you see, I am alone and this is me under my own sun. Alone but happy #whogoat. Something like that! Get my point? If not, just leave it like that and yeah, nevermind.

Along the way, we stopped at the Patapat bridge to take some pictures. We do (again!) childish act that for our eyes only *wink*
















Here we were in Bangui Wind farm. Though I really like to remind you guys that the sands are too hot since we went there around 2 or 3 I think. and it’s really hot, but we’ll do anything for photo op. So, nevermind the tan, nevermind the sun, nevermind if we’re going to be negra for the entire year. The essence of the summer is to be tanned after all. So yeah! nevermind all that, Tan will fade but memories will remain right?!

I just like also to remind again to bring lots of water because you’ll need it after going to the windmills.



After going to wind farm we went to Vigan Heritage to eat dinner. Guess where we ate our dinner? tentenen! We ate at Mang Inasal! hahahhaha.. of all places right? mang inasal! the reason was that it’s the only restaurant that offer unlimited rice and since we had more boys than girls and girls who eat like boys, we decided that we could save lots of money if we eat there. Even if Mang Inasal is too overrated (I think) my tummy was still happy.

At 8 pm we decided to go home. We arrived in Manila at 6 AM the next day.

PS. if you like or decided to have a vacation in Ilocos via land with your car, I would like to remind that you should let someone check your car if you don’t know how to check it , have a spare tire and full your tank. It’s a long drive and most of the time especially when you’re in a secluded area, you can’t find a gas station. We experienced a flat tire along Pangasinan when we’re going home. It’s really nice to have road trips and go miles miles away from home and see new places but we all have to be safe! Please enjoy and be safe.

Do you have something you wanted to share so we could go there and try it? Places? Restaurants? adventures? activities? Name it we’re game! Comments are love!
