[CERVANTES] ► HELLO! WELCOME TO CERVANTES!
[CERVANTES] ► Motorcycle Ride to the Great Wall (of Ilocos)
TEASER ▬ It was a never ending nervousness with the question of "What will happen to me next?" as I continue traversing more and more mountains with no idea where will I end up or if I will go back home safe and alive.

ANYWAY, GOING TO CERVANTES WAS AN ACCIDENT for me. That day, I just asked my brother to join me in a joyride. We reached Cervantes unexpectedly. We never thought we could.

It was a hot day in ▼ #VIGAN
where we came from. We just decided to go to Candon City, now, I just can't explain how we were able to reach Cervantes with our scooter. The sun was hot and the sky was clear that time. There was no time for rain drama. But even if it is summer, it is cold in ▼ BESSANG PASS
[CERVANTES] ► It's All Fog at the Historical Bessang Pass
TEASER ▬ I came here under the scorching heat of the sun in the extended summer for June but reaching the place seems like it is already December...
[CERVANTES] ► THE CERVANTES CHILL, COOL SIGHT
[CERVANTES] ► ZIGZAG ROAD TO THE TOWN
[CERVANTES] ► OUR HONDA BEAT JUST MADE IT!
The town has the Yamashita Cave, McArthur Tunnel, Bessang Park National Park, Gambang falls, etc which are all part of the history of the Philippines! However, for us, the scene we saw along the Cervantes highway is already a must-see and the romantic freezing breeze and ambiance of the town is a travel bonus! To my great surprise, there are pine trees! It was an awesome view. It feels like you're in ▼ #BAGUIO
minus the crowd and commerce.
[CERVANTES] ► RICE FIELDS IN THE CERVANTES VALLEY
, ▼ BENGUET
and ▼ MOUNTAIN PROVINCE

or Mountain Province where you can see Rice Terraces? They are present in Cervantes too!
