And I must say, I love this hat that I bought from the souvenir shop which costs a lot more back in Manila. Lol.

I’m not a fan of museums like this but at least you get to learn about the history and even see equipments and things older than you. It’s amazing how they preserve them though. So much has happened and changed through the years and some of it still affects the current. Oh well, I’m done here. Just visit them when you’re in Ilocos as there’s still more you can discover here!

Happy travels,
Nicole
