Day 2: Pagudpud Tour

From Laoag to Pagudpud which is also part of Ilocos Norte, take a 2-hour bus ride for P60. This place is quite far from the centro. What is known here are homestays. Homestays are like the local version of Roomorama where a tourist can stay to a family. What is different is you get to talk to them, feel their family atmosphere and of course they cook for you lutong bahay style! The fried lobster was unforgettable. I ate with my bare hands! We stayed at Hannah Lou Homestay which is very cheap P250 per night per person and as low as P50 is their home-made meals. Now what is cool about this is Mang Ruben, the father also offers two tours for P600 with his tricycle! Now this is a different kind of road trip. He first let us see hundreds if not thousands of wild ducks (wild ducks can fly!) in a swamp near to his house, the lovely Bangui wind mills, the Kapurpurawan rock (uniqure limestone formation like you are walking in a desert) and the Cape Bojeador lighthouse that has been operating since the 18th century! We are blessed we have a sunny weather, bring a hat and be ready to walk and walk and walk!




No these are NOT birds flying. These are WILD DUCKS. Yes they can fly!
