I get what you mean but with limited time, I can only make do with what is available to me.

But it is still fun!

Yup. I walked to the terminal for my May 2011 Banaue trip. So I walk again this time.

But to tell you the truth, the reason why I walk there initially is because I don't know which jeepney is going to the terminal!

Hahahha!!!!

MH just read your trip report. Thanks for sharing and another informative report.

I may be attending a wedding in Vigan next year but as usual you beat me haha.

By the way do you ever have a relaxing holiday where you chill out at one place for a week?

Tommo,

No, I do not have the luxury to staying in a place for a wek to relax. The moment I wake up, I start to travel. However, with family, I will slow down the pace a lot.

While you are at Vigan, I believe you will visit Pagudpud too. It is a nice place. Do enjoy!!

By the way, as you can read from my trip report, Tune Hotel is pretty good!!!
