Ilocos Trip Part 2 (Heading North + Multiple Breathtaking Views of the Sea)

After the sand adventure, we took some time to check out the Museo Ilocos Norte, a mini museum that showed how life was before in Ilocos.

On the right is a dining area wherein they use the big ass fan (manually operated by servants wherein you pull a string for it to sway and produce cool air)

After a glimpse of Ilocos’ History, we headed to the Burgos Lighthouse in Cape Bojeador in which they said there were ghosts in some parts of the place and should be extra careful (I never liked such scary stories). Anyway, the view from the top was amazing and it was cold and windy that the winds were strong it was pushing me. I needed to stay away from the edge because it’s a long way down if I fall. Yikes!

Moving on to the next destination: Kapurpurawan Rock Formation. I didn’t expect that it would be that nice and even used this as my cover photo. Hahaha. I was so in love with nature that I didn’t mind the strong winds blowing and pushing me that I almost stumbled down the rocks. Good thing there was someone to assist me though because I am a clutz. My favorite part? Horseback riding! I even wanted to take one horse home.

A few minutes away from Kapurpurawan was the famous windmill farm in which they call Bangui Windmills. This is what I usually see from other people’s photo and yes, I finally had the chance to take a photo with the windmills just like them!

And the final stop before heading to the beach, we passed by the Domeless Bell Tower of Bacarra. The second bell tower I have seen in Ilocos.
