Bicol Trip!

When I was a kid, I will often draw volcanoes as perfect as triangle like Mayon Volcano. So visiting Bicol was a dream come true it’s like seeing those childhood drawing comes to life.

The main purpose of the trip is to attend a best friend’s wedding and to try to discover the beauty of Bicol in a relax manner. This is how I travel, I want to enjoy every moment. I don’t want to rush from one place to another just for the sake that you can say ay naputahan ko lahat or nalibot ko  or because you want to share it.

I don’t want to stress myself during travel so I don’t make itineraries, I only make a list which means you can still go sightseeing and play tourist without stressing yourself out. The trick here is to loosen the reins on your schedule a little bit.

Bicol region has recently seen a revival in its tourism industry, due to the popularity of Mayon Volcano, the new CamSur Water Sports Complex, whale shark spotting, among others, which consequently increased the number of upscale resorts in the region. via

And its gastronomic food experience to offer!  Spicy food! Pag lapang mode talaga winner skn! Peg ko yan!

I'm not good with  travel entry but I love travelling as much as I love to wait for my big shot from the love department...lol



while waiting for the 7:50 am flight- good thing I have good music download on my BB:)


 Good job for me! I only have two small bags! I tried to squeeze all my clothes to the yellow bag
and the other one is for my killer shoes to wear to the big day!
breakfast@ airport/clubhouse:Delifrance
Touchdown Legaspi! Then head to Sorsogon to our booked hotel and dress up to attend the big day.
they add up to my happiness! Travel with my girlfriends. We used the starex van
for the 3 days trip! I like going on road trips to see the hidden surprises along the way.
There’s a certain feeling of freedom you get when you’re just driving to get to your destinations,
not knowing what to expect at each turn.
Fail jump shot:)
    
   First stop: Cagsawa Ruins

   Remnants of an 18 century Franciscan Church and was destroyed by the eruption of the Mayon Volcano.
Located in the minicipality Daraga Albay. Below is an old photo I found thru Wikipedia .
It explain well the danger of living close proximity to the volcano
And now you will only see the belfry and some part of the convent
Upon arrival, local people will approached you and offer their photography services.
just give your camera then they do some tricky snapshots. It was fun but the
sun will surely melt you! So armed yourself with a good sunscreen.
After all the energy draining fun jump and trick shots, we gave the boy P400 sa dami pa namang kinuha nyang
picture sat for sure naguluhan sya sa daming naming dalang camera:)

Then I check all the shops within the area and bought souvenirs and hauled Pili!
              By 11 pm we bid goodbye to the classic post card Mayon Volcano with a big smile
            on our faces like a child whose dream come true and hit back the road heading to CAMSUR!

Life is Good
