Pagudpud Dream

I have never been to Pagudpud. I learned about the place from friends, and I'm fascinated by its beauty through the pictures.

Pagudpud is located in the northernmost tip of the Philippines, in the province of Ilocos Norte, about 350 miles from Manila.

I further learned about its beauty, through television, when the Department of Tourism showcased some attractions such as these:

Windmills of Bangui

In August, my dream of seeing its beauty will be realized, as I participate in the 65k foot race organized by the Philippine Association of Ultrarunners.

Lovely place. 'Been away from the Philippines for a long time. Didn't know there were wind mills up there, too! Nice shot from the beach and mills on the background. Thanks for sharing Jet.
