Ilocos Trip Day 1: Hello, Vigan!

So the whole trip was organized by Mich as an advanced birthday gift/trip. Naks. She booked via Pilipinas Roadtrip which is just perfect if you're on a budget. We only paid P3,800/person inclusive of transpo (van), hotel, entrance fees + we paid P1k extra for a separate room. Anyway, more on the details later. We left Manila at around 9pm, meeting place was at Petron Station, along EDSA in Makati. We just slept the whole time til we reached Vigan at around 7am. If you're kinda maarte like me, don't ride a van! Super cramped and uncomfy coz I can't straighten out my legs. :( It was raining hard when we got to Grandpa's Inn, but rain or shine we couldn't contain our excitement. Haha. Here are photos!

 Grandpa's Inn was once a house owned by the Donato Family which housed soldiers.
