Summer getaway at Marites Homestay Blue Lagoon in Pagudpud

Just before summer comes to its close, I had an opportunity to visit Pagudpud for a weekend getaway with my daughter and her friend. This is the second time I visited Pagudpud, the first time was in 2013, when we had our Three day tour of Ilocos, and Pagudpud was just part of a day tour in our three day itinerary so we didn’t enjoy much the beach.  And so this time, I planned on beach bumming in Pagudpud.
Staying in Marites Homestay and Restaurant Blue Lagoon
As a busy mom, an overnight stay with me beside the beach would just be enough for me to relax and unwind from my busy daily schedule. I wasn’t looking for any fancy things in a place to stay just a homey ambiance, peaceful and quiet. 
It wasn’t difficult for us to locate Marites Homestay Blue Lagoon in Balaois, Pagudpud, fortunately the drivers who took us there knew their establishment.  From the van driver of Laoag to Pagudpud bound and the tricycle driver who directly brought us to Marites Homestay.
At around 2 p.m. we arrived a…

Travel Australia in Style with These Hints

Travel in Style

Australia is a vast country and if you want to see a lot of it, you need to choose a way to travel.  You could hire a car for a roadtrip, but there are more comfortable options. Of course, you could fly for a short journey. However, if you want to see some scenery along the way, you should consider some other choices. For example, a cruise around the coast is an excellent way to see some of the major cities. You could also take the train and pay for a cabin, which can give you magnificent views of the outback.

Take a Private Tour

When you arrive in the country, you could wander around with a guide book. However, the way to really get to know somewhere new is to have a local person show you around. You'll find companies like Kimberley Tours that can offer you a private tour. A local guide can not only show you all the best places but share their knowledge about the area too. Your tour could be on foot, in a 4x4, or even by bike. There are all kinds of tours you might e…

How to visit Paris on a budget

Paris is an amazing city; there is so much to see and do. It is a vibrant and busy city with so much culture and history. As well as being a romantic city, it does have a reputation for being a little pricey. You might think that you have to spend a lot when you are there, to make it worth it. This is not the case! You can have a great time without having to spend a lot. You just need to plan ahead a little more so that you are planned and prepared.

The cost of living for Parisians is a little higher than it is for others in France . It goes that way in most cities, though. As a result, the hotels often cost a little more too. It is a good idea to avoid the classic touristy areas when you are thinking about somewhere to stay. They know tourists want to be in the thick of it all, and will charge you extra for it. Think about staying somewhere a little further out. You should take into account the cost of travel, though. So work it all out and see if it will cost less. The chances are th…
