Jay and I have been swamped with work recently, which explains why we haven't been posting any articles. We are itching to travel again and we are full "kayod" mode--saving each and every penny! 

For now, I'll do a throwback travel and share with you the fun and exciting week I had with NLEX Lakbay Norte.

Every year, North Philippines Visitors Bureau (NPVB) organizes a weeklong trip to promote the tourism in Northern Luzon. This was their 5th year and NLEX Lakbay Norte gave us a tour around the provinces of La Union and Pangasinan where we tried adventurous activities, ate local dishes, visited new sights and checked out the best hotels and resorts to stay in.

Our trip was jam-packed so let me break it down for you. I'll start by sharing the 5 activities you can do in La Union. (Part 2 here)

5 Activities in La Union

1. Surf

Of course, first on the list is... surfing! La Union has always been known as one of the best surfing spots so obviously, this is a "must-try" (activity) when you visit.

Not into surfing? You can also enjoy the sunset! 

2. Art appreciation at LU Art Gallery

What's awesome about this gallery is that they feature the works of their local artists.
