Getting to explore Vigan again was so special for me. I have very precious memories here with my family and that trip was what ignited my interest in the past, our national history and ancient architecture. It is also what opened my eyes to the importance of travelling. There is something so magical about stepping into a place that has survived hundreds of years. Every time I step into a house, a building, a church I wonder at how many people lived their lives, how many stories of people’s lives I don’t know, I wonder what there live’s might have been like and did they know that one day we would stand in awe of their history. How many people have come and gone and that one day I will be the same. It really is a kind of therapy and a way to see the world through a different lense and on a different scope. And I love so much that this place reminded me of the video games I play. Like The Last of Us. Ugh. I loved that it made @ajabrenica kilig as well cause he plays too. So thankful for everything I saw these past few days. Everything was so beautiful, even seeing the cemetery under naked sunlight from the tower was beautiful. Somehow death doesn’t seem so scary after that sight. P.S. happy halloween.
“There is something so magical about stepping into a place that has survived hundreds of years,” she said. “It really is a kind of therapy and a way to see the world through a different lens and on a different scope.”
Padilla’s adventure will not be complete without the presence of Abrenica. Padilla shared sweet photos of them at Saint Augustine Parish Church, also known as Bantay Church.
The couple made sure they have a photo of themselves at the historic belfry of the church, called Bantay Tower.
They also professed their love by wearing rings made from what looks like leaves.
Of course, their Vigan getaway also included their son Alas, whose delight at the place was captured by his parents.
Doting father Abrenica stayed by his son’s side when Alas sat at a sidewalk at Calle Crisologo.
He also accompanied the toddler during a kalesa ride.
And a family photo is a must on any family trip. Safe travels! JB
