Destination: Ilocos Norte

Laoag International Airport

NOVEMBER 26, 2011 – A 2-year-old plan to visit places in Ilocos Norte finally came into fruition. It was an extended family vacation arranged by my “bilas” (i.e. my sister-in-law’s husband), Dr. Mike Sabas, who is a native of Batac.

It was the first trip to Ilocos of Marielle and Johan. As for me, the last time I visited Ilocos was in the summer of 1998!

We arrived at Laoag International Airport via Philippine Airlines flight PR-226 shortly before lunch on November 26.

Here’s a short slideshow of photos we took upon arriving in Laoag City. If the slideshow doesn’t immediately play you may have to refresh your browser (sorry about that…probably a browser compatibility issue).

We swung by Batac for a sumptuous and authentic Ilocano lunch of Bagnet, Pinakbet, Vigan Longganiza, Igado, etc. prepared just for us by Kuya Mike’s family.

We borrowed a Hyundai Starex Van and a Toyota Innova (from Kuya Mike’s brother) which Kuya Mike and I drove that afternoon to our target destination in Ilocos Norte: PAGUDPUD.
