Yes, it was cold and foggy and has been drizzling almost the whole time we were there that the gorgeous Mt. Mayon at the Cagsawa Ruins didn’t show up.
But that didn’t stop us from enjoying our quick over night stay on the 14-16 hours drive, Bicol.
It was Cha-Cha’s birthday celebration. She and her husband invited me and my Jaze to an escapade the four of us really made the most out of.
With the gorgeous birthday girl, Charisse. One of the best girlfriends I have in my human life.
Bicolanos really have a great sense of taste. I love their food! We tried and enjoyed different versions of their Bicol Express and this Pinangat is also one of their must-try!
We visited Lignon Hill and tried to get at the Japanese Tunnel on our own, with just the help of our precious Albay map we got form the hotel and of course, the amazing Google Maps. We even got to Sorsogon, another 1 hour drive from Legazpi, just to have dinner! 😀
Thanks to my Airborne Tech Hype Powerbank with 16,800 mAh real capacity that powered up all my gadgets for the entire weekend! Airborne Tech has always been my battery saver since I love taking lots of pictures and use GPS during my travels.
The Daraga Church
Built in 1773 by the Franciscan priests, Daraga Church’s wall is made up of volcanic stones which are abundant in the area. The American bombers heavily damaged this church with great architectural style during the Second World War in 1945, and was renovated with a design that follows the Vatican II council. Daraga Church still undergoes preservation measures to prevent deterioration.
Bicol is a great place for vacation. I enjoyed our 2 days of stay in this coconut-full land. Good place, good food, good company.
Keepin’ it cool,
