"Draw me like one of your french girls."
Third Stop: San Juan Beach. Finally got to see, with my own two eyes, La Union’s famous sea foam. The waves weren’t that big for surfing when we arrived in San Juan beach so we settled with enjoying the seashore and picture taking, soaking up the heat of the sun. Summer Feels.
Next Stop: Ma Cho Temple. It is a temple to the Chinese Goddess of the Sea, Mazu. Other than the intricate design of its structures and sculptures, the solemnity of the entire place made me fall in love with it that I want to publish a separate blog about it (soon).
Next: Thunderbird Resort. This place makes you feel as if you are actually in Greece with its architectural design influenced by Santorini
Next: The Lighthouse. Unfortunately, the lighthouse was closed when we got there but that did not stop us from enjoying the majestic view.
Seventh Stop: HaloHalo de Iloko. “La Union’s Best” and indeed, it was the best halo-halo I have ever tried. I think the yema in it rendered the dessert even more special. I also ordered Palabokano, Ilocano-style palabok with tidbits of their famous longganisa. Mangan ta!
Eighth and Last Stop: Grape Farm.
This was by far the best trip of my life. Thanks to my newly found friends for making this travel more memorable. To more and more amazing trips in the future!
