Northern Escape

Our Northern Escape was cancelled twice. First, due to technicality reasons, and second, due to a tsunami warning. When it finally pulled through with a date worth working on, there was no looking back as we headed up. It turned out to be more than an adventure tour. The food offerings were just too great to pass on as well. From the halo halo vendor to the wonderful Pinakbet pizza, we were sold. Of course the main highlight was just what we expected. Sand-boarding rush! Add to that our wonderful 4x4 driver that spun us around the dunes making sure that  it was a joy/scream fest/messy ride for us!

Paoay, Laoag, Vigan, and Pagudpud were worth the trip. Be sure to pack some patience and be prepared to ( literally ) eat dust . Patience, for the long ride to make it the roadtrip it truly was, and a bit of guts to eat, tour, surf the sand, and swim in cold waves as well. We had a 2yr old and a 4yr old with us who had both of that! It was then I came to realize what Vich really was about. It's not a business, neither is it a creed. Vich Addventures was exactly what I could not find myself. There's no need to expound on this. Just try it! Live an ultimate weekend and you'll know what I mean!
