Cris & Mireille Prenup (Ilocos)

This was my second time to visit the city of Vigan and explore the Ilocos region. Mireille had an ancestral house in Santa, Ilocos Sur which was were we stayed for three days. After about 11 hours of travelling, we were about 15 minutes away from Vigan City were we took some shots at the "Bantay" Bell Tower and then headed off to the streets of Vigan. I ate a lot of "Empanada" and lots of local food (which I cannot remember the names...), but they were all good! :D The following day, we went to Paoay Church, Lighthouse and the Wind Farm in Bangui, Ilocos Norte. Spent a lot of the time on the road but was so much fun exploring the Northern region of the Philippines which I really appreciated.











This is where we stayed during the trip.



Up North, cemeteries are a common sight along the national highway.



Inside the Lighthouse...



This was my workstation for three days! :D

Ilocos was really amazing, too bad we did not have enough time to go to Fort Ilocandia. So many beautiful places in the Philippines indeed! :D

Hey Andy,really love the image of the couple with the green umbrella in front of the fortress/church gate. It is such an elegant and classy image. I'm sure the couple would love it.
