Day 3 ~ Journey to the Edge of Ilocos

Day 3 started at 8am,  our tour guide Raymond met us at the Fort Ilocandia Resort (FIR).  Raymond has been quite helpful in ensuring we get the most of our trip in Ilocos with the limited time we have.  
If you are looking for a tour guide, this guy got us covered. You can contact him via mobile ~ 0926-2589397.

Raymond our tour guide, turned friend.

TIP: For this leg of the Ilocos Tour, don't forget to bring a jacket, especially if you are travelling on a "ber" month as it gets quite cold.

Our first stop from FIR is the rustic town of Burgos, where the Kapurpurawan White Rock Formation and the Cape Bodeajor Lighthouse are located.

Kapurpurawan White Rock Formation
The name came from the Ilocano word "puraw", which translates to "white" ~ the color of the various rock formation seen in the area. 

Day 2 ~ Finally reached Laoag after 5 years planning

Day 2 ~ LAOAG Raymond our tour guide met us at the Paradores de Vigan lobby.   Our first stop before leaving Vigan is Bantay Church and Bell Tower.  Our timing was perfect since it was a Sunday and we were just in time for mass (It was in Ilocano though, but it was okay). 

Laoag is about 2 hours away from Vigan.  

First stop was the Juan Luna Shrine
