Vigan, moving back in time

A travel blog entry by ulka


... influences and very old tower with splendid view. We took picture with church guards and stayed for a while for funeral - open coffin in the middle of the church; people wearing white. They didn’t look like they come for funeral, more like family gathering with chit chatting and smiling. Then we visited an old pottery factory – established in 1824 and Flores Pots & Hidden Garden, created and owned by Francis Flores. The garden came alive ...

Hiking to a big waterfall and the drive to Vigan

A travel blog entry by avaslotman


This morning we checked out of the Rocky Inn and headed into town to do one more hike. We decided to hike through the rice terraces to a large waterfall. We headed out with a guide named Jane. First we took a ride in a van to the start of the path. After 15 minutes of climbing down crudely built stairs we came to a crude path that took us into a small town. The stairs we had just climbed down was the main way to the town, there was no road going to ...

That’s because the going is so slow through town after congested town full of motorbikes and three-wheelers putt-putting around and clogging ...

All Driving, No Sleeping: Wedding Crashers

A travel blog entry by jmlcamacho


... prayers to this couple's wedding. When the mass was over, my uncle told me to walk to the altar, in the same fashion that kids do during communion, however instead of kids a hoard of people followed suit and gathered around the altar. I did not know what was about to happen, as all the people around me started lifting their hands towards the priest. It turns out at the end of the mass the priest sprinkles holy water, and people come forward to be blessed. ...
