Travel Diary: Bangui Windmills, Ilocos Norte

Last year, me and my college friends went to an Ilocos Trip. I was supposed to share the most hassle trip I've ever experienced with a travel agency, but I was still editing photos and there are lots of backlogs I need to work on. I know it's a bit late if I plan to post my negative feedback against the travel agency, so I guess I'm not sharing it anymore? Or should I? 

Because what we (me and my friends) really wanted was to have our time off and to bond together, and it was fun discovering famous places in Ilocos, but it was ruined by that travel agency. Anyway, I'm going to post a separate blog about that if my memory can still serve me right, anytime soon.


For today, I will be sharing my experience with Bangui Windmills, Ilocos.
I've been to Ilocos so many times. Me and my family used to visit the northern part of the country since my dad works there. I have seen these windmills twice already, but this is the first time I went too close to touching them! I always have a notion that windmills are built together with a little house, just like what I see in cartoons. But I never knew what windmills are for.

The Bangui Wind Farm uses 20 units of 230ft high Vestas V82 1.65 wind turbines, arranged on a single stretching along a nine-kilometer shoreline of Bangui Bay, facing the West Philippine Sea. These windmills faces the sea from where the wind blows towards the land.

Can you see their blades almost touching the sky?
