Museo Ilocos Norte

PART 2.

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.

I wonder what it would be like still living like this and everything was vintage. That also means living without phones, internet and all the modern things we have right now. But you know, I love taking a break from my phone too and people sometimes wonder why I’m not updated about the happenings and news on Facebook. I stopped scrolling endlessly through Facebook because it is such a waste of time especially when you have a load of work that needs to be done.

A little history about the Philippines and I hope you still enjoyed this post! 🙂

Happy travels,
Nicole
