Ilocos Norte is one of the famous and highly-visited provinces in the Philippines which offers a very satisfying vacation for both local and international tourists and travelers. It doesn’t only offers sumptuous foods, but it also explains some histories of the country and also provides exciting and momentous adventures.

Ilocos Norte is located almost at the topmost of the Philippines, specifically in the Northwest area of the country. And since I am just here in Metro Manila, some of my close friends planned, though no definite dates mentioned yet, to have us a road trip to Ilocos Norte which is just more or less 8-hour drive from the metropolitan.
So, as early as now, I am already thinking of what to bring since they asked me to list down what we need to prepare like foods, stuff to enjoy along the way, and everything we could carry on. One thing which reminds me of road trips is song-trips as well. In this circle of friends, we all love music, we all love to sing though songs don’t obviously love us. Off course, we won’t be too trying hard to impress everybody on the road having a microphone, mic stand and all the musical instruments to pack our enjoyment. Maybe, we’ll just make use of iPods, iPads or any musical gadgets that are just handy.
But again, as I have said earlier, these are not yet well-planned and well-decided so things might changed in a wink, who knows. However, we still all hoping and trying our best to have this road trip to Ilocos Norte realized.
I know this is a long overdue post. But since it is better late than not posting at all, I should have to share the summary of my ‘air’ travels in 2012.
I had a total of twelve (12) different flights, fro and to different places in the country.
- January 1, 2012 — first fly in 2012 from Davao City to Cebu City
- March 31, 2012 — Cebu City to Davao City with Deborah’s first fly with AirPhil Express
- April 12, 2012 — went back to Cebu City from Davao City
- May 15, 2012 — Cebu City to Manila via PAL
- May 17, 2012 — Manila to Cebu City via PAL
- May 21, 2012 — Cebu City to Manila via Cebu Pacific Air
- May 25, 2012 — Manila to Cebu City via Cebu Pacific Air
- June 5, 2012 — Cebu City to Manila via Cebu Pacific Air

Wow! Awesome! I didn’t realize until today that I have flew as many times as I could the past year. I hope to fly again this year as often as I could.
Being happy, for me and as of this very moment, is simply to travel to places I never been to. And since I am feeling blue today, I tried looking for the World’s Happiest Countries where I can spend some time with family and friends — experiencing all the things that could make us happy. Here’s what I found from Travel.Yahoo.com earlier today, The World’s Happiest Countries.
5. New Zealand
8. The Netherlands
Some of the things I want to do on these countries above that could make me happy are to shop, to eat, to relax, road trips, having with me and my travel-mates the ultrasone headphones at musicians friend which is very good for road-tripping, and of course, to party all night. Isn’t that great experience? It is!
Are you one of those people who used to save their bonuses for the holidays? If so, have had you tracked where did your money go on Christmas and New Year?
Take a look at this Top 10 Reasons Holiday Makers Overspend infographic below and let’s see if these are where your money go during the holidays.
With the rising cost of living, the squeeze on salaries and the constant threat of our rocky economy, it can feel like there’s no such thing as bargain holidays. But, thanks to the sheer number of price-led holidaymakers, the cheap holiday market is well and truly alive and kicking.

So, how do you find a great holiday deal?
The old package favorite of late holiday deals still exists. The best way to find a great last-minute getaway is to start searching for holidays within a few weeks of the departure date. That is, start searching now on holidays leaving within the next few weeks. You’ll probably notice that certain package breaks, particularly those to popular destinations such as Spain, Greece and Turkey, are significantly cheaper than normal.
Why? It’s all to do with the way package holidays work. Tour operators buy up flight seats and hotel rooms well in advance, and then sell this as a package to customers. They advertise the packages for months – sometimes a year or 18 months before the departure date – but if the holiday still hasn’t sold by the time the departure date gets close, they will usually slash the prices and advertise the holiday as a bargain in order to entice those last few customers. After all, it’s better for the company to sell those holidays at cost – or even at a slight loss – than to lose out completely.
The alternative is to book your holiday well in advance. Not only does this ensure that you’ve got plenty of time to pay off the cost of the holiday, which helps to spread the cost, you will also be eligible for tour operators’ early bird deals. It’s another great way to save money on your holiday, meaning you can jet off that bit happier in the knowledge that your holiday is affordable and guilt-free.
