Year-ender Part 1 : Hello Vigan

It has been almost two weeks since the year 2012 ended and I made it's ending worthwhile. I visited one of my dream places, participated in outreach program, ran and climbed mountains with my friends and spent the New Year's Eve with my family.
Part 1: Hello Vigan!
Vigan is one of my dream places to visit. It is exceptional among other cities in the Philippines because it's our country’s oldest surviving Spanish colonial city that dates back to the 16th century.
Welcome to Vigan Hotel!
We stayed in Vigan Hotel. It offers a very reasonable price for backpackers like us.

We immediately leave our things there, freshened up and then out for a late lunch. We're all starving!
-with Allan-
Of course, we tried all the best dishes of Vigan (bagnet, longganisa and pinakbet) in Cafe Leona. 
-Gone in a second! hahaha.. -
After lunch, we're all set to explore the place. Allan, Daniel and I headed to "Baluarte ni Chavit" while Rose chose to roam around the Calle Crisologo. She didn't want to see the Baluarte for some reasons so we respected her decision.

-with the best photobomber Allan-
Next to Baluarte is the Hidden Garden. It's a place where you can dine and relax by simply strolling around. There were also a lot of plants and clay pots on sale.
We did a lot of photo ops there but for me, below photo is the best. Hahaha. Peace Allan and Daniel! :p

-Lovers in Vigan-

After exploring the garden, we go back to Calle Crisologo. We we're supposed to meet Rose but we got a message from her that she's already back in our hotel. So, we're still threesome along the street huh.
We also took a coffee break in one of the shop along the Calle Crisologo.
-The note-
It was like we're traveling back to the old Spanish colonial days while walking around its cobbled stone streets and entering its antiquated houses.

After the long walk, we bought some supplies then get back to the hotel. We also drank some alcohol that night. Hahaha..
The following day was intended for a climb with the whole team. We're about to meet them around 7am at Candon. It's 2 hours away from Vigan so we need to leave early.
We woke up 3am and squeezed a 5km run in our plan. Woooh! We made it short since we don't have much time. 

Our adventure didn't stop there. More on
Part 2: Let's Give Love on Christmas day!
