My Longest Walk in La Union

I remember my longest walking experience in Bacnotan, La Union. It was semestral break and my best friend invited me and another friend to spend a weekend in her home province. I couldn’t remember the exact name of the place where we took a hike, but I think it’s somewhere near Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University also in Bacnotan. It was one of the tiring trek I had in my life. But when we reached the peak, we were treated with lots of green mangoes. It was a feast. We never had that much mangoes in our place. I thought eating mangoes with bagoong was worth the hours of walking. When it’s time to go down, I wish I could just roll my way down the hilly path. We were exhausted and no amount of wearing compression stockings could relieve my aching feet. It was a memorable adventure, but sadly, I’ll never experience anything like it again as I have trouble walking long distance.   🙁
