one torturous road trip

the tricycle driver said, "dalawa dalawa lang po ang sakay" meaning only two persons should occupy each tricycle, comparing the ones in Manila where a tricycle can carry five people. from there i wondered what kind of road was ahead of us. right after a our last stop, Bangui's wind farm we again rode a bus to the nearby town of Burgos. drop by a small shop and bought some chips and cold softdrinks to quench the thirst. from here, we have to take a tricycle ride to the drop off point off to Kapurpurawan rock formation. our last stop in this Ilocos coastal adventure.my worst tricycle ride was this trip. can't even remember the number of times i hit the sides of the tricycle. one would really think that this place that we're going should be worth this torturous road trip.i don't have photos of parts where it was really rough as we kept our heads safe. after about 20minutes of that trip, we finally saw the beautiful coast and a part of what we were here for.the Philippines will have a long weekend break starting tomorrow as we go and visit some of our dearly departed.

Hahahahhaha... mukhang ang layo nga at ang hirap ng daan para lang mapuntahan yan... jijijiji

nakakatakot nga ang daan. i can't imagine myself kung ako ang sakay ng tricycle na yan. malamang eh mabingi na si kuya driver kakatili ko! hahaha! :P

20 minute-tricycle ride seems really loooong but i guess it was all worth the humps and bumps with that breathtaking view.

Adds life when you travel...those are pretty tough roads.

I wonder if one can reach the place by foot.

Have a safe Undas.

Pietro said...

Your nice images well describe that rough road. The landscape is beautiful!

witsandnuts said...

My gosh, extra challenge yan! Pero exciting at the same time. If I'd go there, iisipin ko na lang while riding the trike that "the best is yet to come". =)

darkhorse said...

buti nkaya ng tricycle hahahaha pero sulit naman dahil sa majestic views! tc

uncleawang said...

I hope the tricycle manage to reach the destination..somehow its look powerful & extreme like 4WD.

dylan dimaubusan said...

Ei? Torture nga! I bet sumakit katawan mo..

Di ba mas madali kung lalakarin kahit gaano kalayo? But man, the view..

Probably it'll be one of your unforgettable road trips..Hahaha!

Take care!

ganyan ka-rough road patungo sa province namin. Pero carry ng tricycle ang walong pasahero. am sure dinamdam mo ang sakit ng katawan after that road trip. pero masaya ang experience di ba? lalo na kapag first time. Ang tanong, babalik ka pa dun?

beero said...

parang ang hirap ngang dumaan sa ganyan. pero maganda naman ang place. it's worth the torture kuya dong.hehe

merce78 said...

Dios ko!
ang hirap naman yata ng ginawa n'yo.

wala na bang mas maganda pa na pwedeng madaanan?

Even an all terrain vehicle will have a tough time negotiating this road

SandyCarlson said...

That was some journey! Is that last shot a foot path? Wow. But the destination is worth it.

May you have a blessed All Saints Day.

Toe said...

Ouch! Ang sakit sa katawan. Did the tricycle also go down those steps? Joke lang! :)

bluedreamer27 said...

Yours is another adventurous road trip via tricycle to get into another great destination. Next time you get there, they might have improved the road.
