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.

Reasons Why I Love Traveling with a Motorbike | EDMARATION, etc. | #TownExplorer | Exploring Philippine Towns | Scoop.it

"As I drive along the road, I can clearly see the road ahead, and appreciate the scene at my left and at my right - a thing I can never do while inside a jeep or a bus."

 

Get rid of traffic, use motorbike. Take the narrow rough path to a far-flung place that 4-wheel cars can not do, use a motorbike. There are just many reasons why I really love traveling with a motorbike not to mention the freedon it gives me.

"My only target when I started blogging is to have 100 readers as maximum. Beyond that, it would be more than enough and if it goes more, that would be a bonus and if I reach million readers, I promise I will be online 24 hours (Just give me 8-hour break) Haha!"

 

Well, well. This is not yet my official blogversary post. This is just a prelude, in fact it's 4 days more to go before that 1st year anniversary. I am on a high cloud LOL! It's been a year of fruitful blogging - nah! It is fruitful because I met new people through blogging, whether in facebook, twitter and personal. Unlike any other blogs, I am not earning here a good penny. In fact I am working to pay for my internet bills just for me to blog. Haha. My blog doesn't support me financially, I support my blog financially. LOL!

"I was actually afraid and I asked manong driver to rush going out of the place immediately."

 

So what about these ruins? For view seekers and sunset chasers, this is not the place for you! It is absolutely not! Because if you try to figure out, what's very beautiful to see in these mossy old ruined structures? A beautiful background for wedding photos? A perfect background for jump shots? Nah! I will not recommend it because for sure it is not for you! But for heritage conservation advocates, history freaks, researchers and ghost hunters (Uh? Yes ghost hunters), this place I am going to feature today is the right place for you. It is called the Pindangan Ruins located in the city of San Fernando, La Union.

Sulvec Bay, Narvacan | Sunset Over Paraiso ni Juan and the Memoirs | EDMARATION, etc. | #TownExplorer | Exploring Philippine Towns | Scoop.it

"This sunset I am seeing brings back good memories of dreams and how the simple dreams were fulfilled. Owning a digital camera to capture the sunset was just a fantasy when I was still a student but became a reality later on. This sunset is making me remember that dream."

 

Waiting until the sun will submerge itself to the horizon as we are faced to the west, patience is a must. Never mine if we will go home late. It will cost as a 40-minute slowly-but-surely-driving since the highway would be too dangerous to take considering the dark has started consuming the guiding power of the light.
