Visual Diary: Ilocos Norte

I was taken on a whirlwind adventure in Ilocos Norte. This place is truly amazing. It also proudly boasts of a family that most Filipinos disapprove of. I went there with open eyes and saw a beautiful place filled with rich history and love for its motherland. Come take a look.

I love theses photographs of Ferdinand and Imelda. For me, it just shows two people who are truly, deeply, madly in love. I feel jealous. I honestly wish someone would look at me like that.

Unfortunately for us, we weren’t able to go into the Marcos Museum but I did manage to squeeze in this shot.

Again, I just love these details

Our family was also able to see the frozen (?) body of the late Ferdinand Marcos. It was creepily amazing. The guy that was in charge of closing was kind enough to let a few of the, ahem, late tourists in to take a look. I also just like to note that this guy still called Marcos as ‘president.’ Talk about respect for a dead guy who caused a lot of injustices to a lot of Filipinos.

  1. Stunning captures Kat! Love those windmills and the rock formation is so beautiful. What great architecture as well. I love old churches like that. They truly knew how to build those days. Thanks for sharing. 😀 ♥
