Magnificent Sunset Over a Remote Barrio Called "Gusing" | EDMARATION, etc.

Magnificent Sunset Over a Remote Barrio Called "Gusing" | EDMARATION, etc. | #TownExplorer | Exploring Philippine Towns | Scoop.it

"Unspoiled, sincere, peaceful , surprising - this is the sunset over a remote barrio that is not easy to experience to sunsets seen in crowded beaches and touristy islands."

 

I have just visited a remote barangay of the historical town of Sta. Maria, Ilocos Sur and did some tiring hike to steep trails to reach a waterfall. Spent much of our time, the darkness is coming in a rush. I just needed to hurry up to be safe. It was going dark and I am still at the remote barrios and it was about 15 minutes more before reaching the town center. It was not a regret, there I saw this magnificent sunset!

 

What I love about exploring the remote barrios in our province and some adjacent provinces is the feeling of uncertainty.

 

It is the uncertainty that gives you anxiety if what you are going to discover is of worth or not, good or bad, surprising or disgusting. That's the "thrill" and I am always looking after that thrill.
