Vigan

So here’s the long-delayed ootd+travel post. I shared in my earlier posts that my boyfriend and I traveled to Vigan, Ilocos Sur immediately after the holy week.  We knew the place would be filled with tourists during the said week, so we decided to go there a little later.

Since I was a kid, I’ve always wanted to go to Vigan. I remember being inspired by our HEKASI (history and culture) books and amazed by how beautiful our tourist destinations are. But because I came from a poor family, we did not have opportunities to travel. I clearly remember being envious of my classmates who could afford our school’s annual trips.

I told myself that when I’m employed and more capable of traveling, I will go to historic places as well as tourist destinations found in my old school books. With Chad’s help, I saw Zambales, Daet, La Union, Baler, and now Vigan. My next destinations would probably be Corregidor Island, Palawan, and Cebu. I’m crossing my fingers that I get to be in these places before the year ends, but I digress.

I love being with Chad because he’s spontaneous and very adventurous. I used to be a pretty uptight person, but after a few months of dating I noticed myself becoming more calm and cool about things. I’m even enjoying skimboarding and climbing now; a few years ago, you won’t see me doing those things.

We learn a lot from each other, and it also helps that we both love to travel. We enjoyed Vigan immensely and you will know why in a few days. I have allotted a separate post for the trip. Chad and I used our Canon AE-1 and Rebel G film cameras for the pictures and they turned out really nice. 🙂

By far this is the best photo of us during the trip. We were all smiles for the date picture at Hidden Garden, and so was our photographer. I thought he just found us cute, apparently his friend was photobombing behind us. HAHA best photo ever.
