During our Ilocos trip, one of the places that we endeavoured was the La Paz Sand Dunes in Paoay. The place was awesome, it’s as if we were transported to the whatever deserts of whatever sandy country. It’s just sand, and hills, and sandy hills wherever you look. This is one of those places where it is appropriate to use the phrase, “Eat my dust.”
These are our rides. Each jeep can accomodate four passengers, kaya nga 4×4 di ba. *Insert laugh here*
Joanne (Meyds’ sister), Jolo (Meyds’ brother), and Kuya Allen (Meyds’ driver) rode with me.
While Pes, Meyds, Mar, and Sotto took the other jeep.
Look at us and our priorities.
The ride was fun and bumpy and like Never Say Never, ’tis your chance to scream / shriek / holler / howl / yell / whatever like a teenage / prepubescent girl. Do note however that doing so will only reaffirm the drivers’ belief that it is their life’s mission to make sure that you’re hoarse after the ride.
This is where the off-roading ends and where the sandboarding begins. A warning to those who are planning to try this out, wala man lang silang konsepto ng beginner hill or course, as in yung pinakamataas na talaga na sandhill yung i-e-endeavs.
There are two types of boards depending on whether you’ll be sitting down.
Or standing up.
Up, up, here we go, go. Up, up, here we go, go.
In all fairness isang tanginaaaaa lang pala yung katapat ng takot over going down, the more challenging part is not falling out of your board. (See: Kuya Allen) But the most challenging part as in yung hindi na kaya ng isang tanginaaaaa ay yung pag-akyat pabalik. As in pakshet potashet what is workout?
Sa sobrang struggle umakyat, nagpupustahan na yung mga kasama ko sa taas if it’ll take me 20 or 30 minutes to get back up. Ang gaga gaga gaga niyo gais.
Dahil kabog ang Fitness First sa workout na dulot ng pag-akyat ng sandhill ay nag-stay na lang ako sa baba.
And I came up with this wonderful idea to do fauxboarding. Oha oha.
And Meyds and Mar joined in the fun.
See, fauxboarding produced pretty pictures,
pretty fake. Lulz.
