A broken heart gives us a reason to order buckets of draft beer or watching or to cry over romantic movies or listen to your favorite love song while thinking of what could have been. The list goes on and on…
To forget about the feeling of loneliness and despair we recommend to “Ride and Roll” in the sand dunes.
Laoag Sand Dunes is considered to be National Geological Monument located in La Paz, Laoag City. It has approximately 85 square kilometers (52 square miles) of SANDY coastal desert and beach close is also known as the Desert of the North. It is accessible 15 minutes from the city proper by a tricycle or by a private transport. Factors, like the currents, weather conditions, nature of winds, amount of sediment, and type of vegetation in the area makes each of the dunes unique. The journey to the area is thrilling in its own right because of you must pass uncemented winding road.
Once, in the area you can ride 4×4 vehicles that will allow you to forget your heart aches for your attention will be to hold on for dear life. It is a real bumpy ride that will allow you to scream away your heartaches (if it does not make you forget). You can ask the driver to go get the gears high for a bumpier ride. One must hold on tight literally for the fear of being thrown out of the moving vehicle.
You can also ride an AV, if you prefer to take matters into your own hands.
After the bumpy ride, you can go for sand boarding. This activity is a bit tricky since it will require balance. You can first watch people go and try their luck on the boards.
If you prefer not stand while sand boarding one can always slide The real challenge of the board is to come back atop the dunes. It was really hard to go up because of the sand and of course the heat from the sun.
Then, after a few hours of sliding and rolling in the sand you can simply sit and marvel at the sunset. Reflect on things and to just hope that better days will come your way.
At the end of the day, you might get some bruises here and there; but we are sure that this is one of the best ways to mend a broken heart.
