In four days’ time, my annual birthday trip will once again commence. Like I always do whenever there’s a major trip coming up, I made a mixtape especially compiled for the occasion. This one’s called Northbound II (Hola, Ilocandia!) since I’ll be heading back to where this annual tradition began: Vigan. But, I’ll also be visiting new places: Laoag, the capital of Ilocos Norte, and Pagudpud, home of the powdery white sand beaches that have been dubbed the “Boracay of the North.”
Cover art features some of my film photos taken during my first Northbound trip.
