Finally! After how many days, I found time to blog about my first day at Ilocos, Vigan! Allow me to take you down to memory lane…

We left Manila at 12:00 midnight. Arrived in Candon (Ilocos Sur) at around 10:00am where we had breakfast at Jollibee! Where else?
I'm not hungry. Bow.
After that, we drove another hour to get to Vigan. We were supposed to stay at Grandpa's Inn but their biggest room can only accommodate 8 persons. We're 11 plus 2 kids by the way that's why we end up staying at Playa De Oro. Yes, we stayed beside the sea.

How I wished that I could take one of these chairs home! It's even more comfortable than it looks...
Had a simple but nice lunch (bagnet, vigan longganisa and boneless bangus) and then we all took a quick nap. Next destination? Calle Crisologo in Vigan!
Cafe Leona
Dona Leona

And ended the day with dinner at the famous Cafe Leona.

Had my first Heineken. I'm not big on beers but there's something about Calle Crisologo (Vigan entirely!) that makes me want to just get drunk and be happy while walking the old pavements of Vigan  singing my heart out with beer on hand. Everything is just nice. The place is like Paris (even though I haven't been there yet). It reeks of romance. Of love. And that carefree atmosphere? All the more reason to get wasted...

Up next: More photos of my 2nd and 3rd day in Ilocos!
