Last year, my mom’s side of the family went to Ilocos for our annual summer trip and IT WAS THE BEST. My cousins and I have never been there and everyone’s raving about how beautiful it is, and of course, we just had to go there. It was a break from our usual overnight trips because it was the first time that we got to spend three whole days away from home! It took us 12 hours by land from where we lived to get to Ilocos. But no car ride is ever boring when you’re loaded with food and you’re with your cousins. If you’re not the roadtrip kind of person though, you can always take the plane. Our trip was divided into two: Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur.
