2017 Bicol Expedition

Mid of May this year (kaya nga 2017 eh hehe), we together with my in laws went to Bicol to explore its beauty.

We left Pampanga on May 13, Saturday afternoon – around 3pm and arrived in Iriga at around 6 or 7am. Don’t you worry, we had several stop over so we could have enough rest as well as our drivers, my husband, brother in law and cousin in law were our drivers. 17 hours net – a long drive indeed!

We were tired and needed to sleep. We stayed in my brother in law’s (kuya andy) friend and spent a night there. We did nothing on our first day because of pagod.

The next day, we left the very warm and welcoming house in Iriga, went straight to visit different churches.

And then before the it gets hot – we went to a hot spring for lunch and some hot bath.

And then at KawaKawa, where we had our sili ice cream and had station of the cross! Whew to the challenge of getting up! My strength was tested.

Then left before noon and headed to Albay to see the famous Mayon Volcano.

After that, we had a stop over at Legazpi. Then head our way to find a place to sleep at.

It was hard for us to find a good one. We ended up at…. I forgot  😀

Then the following day, we went to Rizal Sorsogon where there’s a beach and a nice place to spend our last day with. Then visited the heritage place of Barcelona.
