My childhood neighborhood

I'm proud to say that I am priviledged to have roots here in Ilocos. My father is a native of Magsinggal Ilocos Sur and back when I was a baby, my parents left me there with my grand mother until I was a year old. I remember going here every summer and going to Vigan on a daily basis.

Growing up

Back when I was a kid, Ilocos was just the place where we visit our relatives. I didn't gave too much appreciation to it until I reached my high school days. Little by little, I became aware of how historically rich Ilocos is, and how many places you can see and appreciate. I'm happy that I could go back here yearly to discover more places...

Unlimited places to see

The Ilocos region boasts not only one attraction but an array of different eye candies, starting off at Quirino bridge to the tip of Maira-ira in Pagudpud. Historic junkies, nature lovers and foodies will surely enjoy this Northern part of Luzon

    haha, after doing some research it is not the same place as it is named after the former president, not the village!

    I have to ask you is this new Quirino Bridge located at Quirino, the Quirino that is around 24 kms north of Cervantes? I know that there is more than one Quirino but the surrounding hills look as if it may be the same place. My wife was born in Quirino and left there when she was 4 yrs old as Marcos gave land in Palawan to Ilocanos who wanted to settle elsewhere. We were there 3 years ago and i really enjoyed the quiet village.
