day3: ilocos sur - calle crisologo tour

This is gonna be quick, I promise!  Nape-pressure lang naman akong tapusin itong Ilocos series ko bilang Pasko na. Well technically, Christmas is still two days from now, pero kasi parang bukas na rin yun eh. Dba? Did you get my twisted logic? Hahaha! Anyway, here's the last leg of my Ilocos Series.

From San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte, we headed straight to Vigan to tour Calle Crisologo. We got there at around 3pm. We were in Vigan during our first day but I guess they purposely placed the said street last in the itinerary because it's where you can buy a lot of souvenirs and pasalubong. Who would want to tow around tons of kornik on the first day, right? Pero dahil nonconformist kami, we bought on the first day somewhere in Batac and we were poor by the time we were in Calle Crisologo. We only had dirty ice cream aside from the shirts Monique and I bought in Island Souvenirs. We took photos na lang as we strolled the street.

Calle Crisologo (and our official photographer)

foursome ❤

Googled Facts: (1) It's located in the city of Vigan, province of Ilocos Sur. (2) It is also known as Mena Crisologo Street. (3) It is covered by the Vigan Heritage Village along with Plaridel Street. (4) It is lined with Spanish Era ancestral houses and cobble-stoned streets, which led to Vigan's inscription in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. (5) Tourists can buy souvenirs and even ride a calesa (horse-drawn buggy) in Calle Crisologo.

Although we finished early, we had to wait for the others to arrive. We left Vigan at around 5pm, stopped by the popular Marsha's Delicacies and from there.. borlogs na ko. I was asleep the whole time we were in transit and I when I woke up, I was shocked to find out that we were in Trinoma {our drop-off point} already and that the other groups were alighting from the van already. I was even more surprised to find out that my friends were asleep too. Buti na lang hindi umabot sa point na gigisingin pa kami ni manong driver. Hehe. Or worse, madali kami sa garahe. Aguuuyy! We parted ways in Trinoma to finally head home and get our much deserved rest.

Up next: Our itinerary and expenses; also the complete details of the package we availed from Parana Tours. For the meantime, enjoy the holidays you guys! :*
