    I want to win this contest because my mother hails from Ilocos and she has always told me wonderful stories about the place. I’ve actually visited Ilocos already but failed to experience the sand dunes and 4 x 4 adventure. This time around, I would bring my friends who are thrill seekers just like me whom I know will greatly enjoy this experience with me 🙂

    I want to win because I want to cross that out from my bucket list. 🙂 I want to get that amazing adrenaline rush by sandboarding and an awesome 4×4 ride trailing the high slopes of Paoay Sand Dunes. I want to scream, laugh and simply enjoy the charms and beauty of Paoay, Ilocos Norte. 🙂

    I would like to bring my family — Mama (vidaarciaga), Papa (robertarciaga), and my sister Valerie Shane (valeriearciaga) with me. ☺️💕
