Hi dears! Remember I told you about a long weekend I spent with my high school friends at a lovely beach called Blue Lagoon (somewhere North of the Philippines)? Here's the late post about that vacation last August. :)
My hometown is about 6-8 hours North od Manila, where I currently work and reside. Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, where Blue Lagoon is located, is around 5 hours from my hometown. So you can imagine the long trip I took just to be in paradise!
We decided to just hire a car and have a road trip from La Union to Ilocos Norte. This is what the start of the trip was like:
Rain, rain, rain. And flooded roads and potholes. After 2 hours on the road though, we were finally graced by the sun! Yay! We reached Vigan, Ilocos Sur -- with no rain in sight -- and had a sumptuous Ilocano lunch .
After around 2 more hours of driving, we at last had a glimpse of Pagudpud's famous Bangui Windmills!
The long drive really drained us and it was just well and good that the resort we picked was ah-mazing. Hannah's Beach Resort is just a few meters from the waters of the Blue Lagoon beach. It's pricey (especially for a spendthrift like me), but worth every peso or penny. Scattered around the resort are replicas of cartoon and movie characters. The resort sign itself is Hollywood-inspired!

Though the Blue Lagoon was lovely, we experienced rain during our stay. I really got hit hard by the waves when we swam in the beach. Good thing Hannah's Beach Resort also had excellent pools, including this creative pool on top of a pot-shaped structure:
These are my top looks from that trip. :)
|I wore my fave coverup on top of a white sando and paired it with military green pants.|
