Solemn and Rugged Weekend at Tarlac and Pampanga

The family grew fond of taking weekend break seriously and whenever there is time and hubby is not at work, we tend to go out for quick trips out of town. This is a remarkable way to bond and introduce to our son the joy of trying new things and enjoy the different places in the Philippines; there are so many fun activities we can do here!

So last weekend, we went to the nearby provinces at the North of Luzon—Pampanga and Tarlac. We did a solemn visit at Monasterio de Tarlac, paid respect  at Capas National Shrine and went to a rough drive at the Mt. Pinatubo lahar.

SCTEX (Subic–Clark–Tarlac Expressway) is great for cruising!

Start exploring this side of the country and feel the warm of each adventure. All set for the next weekend?

Do you prefer somewhere farther North? You may also find it interesting to read about our trip to Ilocos.
