  1. Wow…we’ve had bad weather before, but never a typhoon! Glad you were safe, and got to see a little bit, at least. Can’t blame you for wanting to go back – looks like it would be fun to explore! As always, thanks for linking up, Kat! #TheWeeklyPostcard

    1. This typhoon is also not as bad as the super typhoon that Philippines had experienced before. But still, glad that we were safe and got the chance to see a little bit of Vigan even though it was raining ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I am not sure I would have gone out to get pictures or anything really. Glad you were all ok, that is quite the experience. Thanks for sharing on #TheWeeklyPostcard

  3. Youโ€™ve captured Vigan Ilocos so beautifully! Thatโ€™s too bad that you had to leave this beautiful place too early. Just one more reason to come back I suppose. I only see the white sand version of the Philippines and the city life in Manilla, so it’s nice to see a different side of the Philippines ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Nancy, true, most tourists fly to Manila for their onward journey to the beaches and the latter is what they are famous for ๐Ÿ™‚ But not much is promoted about their heritage places, just a few and far in between.

  4. Such a shame about the typhoon Kat. Vigan looks like a fascinating place to explore. Colonialism brought many things good and bad but I think the mix of cultures in the Philippines is fascinating. Thanks for joining us on #farawayfiles

    1. I agree with you that colonialism left behind good and bad legacies. I travel frequently nowadays and since heritage and culture is my blog niche, I’m beginning to appreciate the legacy of culture mix which is the interesting bit because it influences language, architecture and food.

  5. Wow, this is quite some experience, Kat! Vigan looks like a place that’s definitely worth visiting. Such a shame you were forced to leave early. Thanks for sharing on #FarawayFiles

    1. Yeah, all of us were sad to leave Vigan at such short notice because we were really looking forward to spend time in this beautiful historical town. But on the other hand, the typhoon was another experience altogether, and I think the typhoon brought all of us together so much so that we named our group “Typhoon Busters”! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Once again you made me nostalgic by posting these pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚ One of the best trip I ever had, in terms of memories. ๐Ÿ™‚
