meaning beautiful (wow Bicol)....this is in deed a beautiful trip down South of Luzon. Perfect timing also coz we went there before the holy week, it's a very relaxing trip with Liz, Bing, Hazel, Jing and Mang Ciano our cool driver....with EZ map, no reservation on places we want to go, but we had a full tank van off we go

the majestic Mount Mayon =)

our house in Donsol courtesy of Amor Farm Resort, clean rooms, good food and very friendly staff

our first stops....swimming with the Butandings, Donsol's gentle giant!

we met Bernadette and Claude, french couple, they're going around the Philippines

so happy for Bing who conquered her fears and came face to face with the gentle giant

going around Albay, our next stops, Cagsawa ruins

and playing tricks on the remains

we stayed in Sto. Domingo, the resort capital of Albay were we have the view of Majestic Mayon and the black sand beach together =)

our next accommodation courtesy of Captain Mike's Resort, clean room, really good food and so friendly staff as well =)

we also look into this camping site

on our way back to Laguna, we also went side trip to Camarines Water Sports Complex or CWC

we took our breakfast there and watched people doing wakeboard

I also tried knee-boarding

too bad I did not make it in my first attempt for wakeboard so we just pose before the board =)
