road to the bicolandia

before i leave for the eskapo series, i'd like to thank acey for making this painting specially dedicated for my blog. she based this painting on my last eskapo series. this was one of the shots in Bantayan island.by Friday night i'm leaving for Naga in the Bicolandia. i can't wait to taste the delicious pangat and the wakeboarding experience! i'll be there for three days so i wont be able to visit your blog within the weekend.

for those bloggers within the area of Naga, it would be great if I get to see you there.

Bicolandia---never been there. Are you going to take the bus? Heard that it's a very long trip. I get so bored with long bus trips so I dread the idea of going to BICOL via land. Bakit nga pala di ako makapunta punta ng BICOL, what's stopping me? Maybe the idea that aside from MAYON, there's nothing much to see, maybe your future articles will erase this concept of mine.....

teresa said...

ingats sa byahe!
at pasalubong na pili nuts,hehehe!

Nanaybelen said...

happy trip for Bicol. Nakapunta na rin ako doon sa mayon. Oks lang kahit medyo nasa paanan na kami pero parang malayo parin. dahil siguro sa laki nya

sophia said...

Cool! Cant wait. Will keep tab of this series. Happy traveling!

EM said...

Wow! Excited ako! My father is from Bicol! And you're right, yung pangat nila at bicol express is to die for. The sea also have strong waves and current .. do be careful. The beach sand is almost black because of the Mayon volcano.

Ingat!

BlogusVox said...

Say hello for us sa mga "daragang magayon".

Lalaine said...

wow! trip to bicol ka naman ngayon... yan province namin... sa Albay nga lang kami, pero nakapunta na ako sa Naga, sa simbahan ng Penafrancia. ganda dun... yngat ka sa byahe.
nga pala... wag mo kakalimutan kumain ng bicol express at magdala ng pasalubong na pili nuts at mazapan.... sarap yun! the best! =)

caryn said...

wow, that's a really nice painting dong; it was nice of acey to make it for you ;-)

the donG said...

>hi sandy, yes. acey did a good job here. thanks! keep in touch.

>hi doc rio, hahaha... ayaw yata talaga ng camera sa akin ng nakaharap.

salamat sa pag abang. parating na ang mga pictures.

yung close up na nakaharap? hmmm... tingnan natin. hehehe...

>salingpusa, yes we took the bus but we chose lazy boy accommodation so that we'll be able to rest.

bicol offers a lot of views to see. its mountains alone are already beautiful. they have waterfalls and beautiful churches. but wakeboarding and the islands of caramoan makes the bicolandia popular today. i think you really need to visit bicol and try pinangat or pangat plus the popular bicol express. pili nuts taste good too.

there's more to just seeing mayon. you can take a short plane trip if you want to avoid the eight-hour trip.

>hi teresa, salamat. sige siguro sa pictures mo nga lang makikita. hehehe...

>hi nanay belen, oo malaki talaga ang mayon. plano ko rin talagang umakyat dun kaya lang delikado daw kasi ngayon.

>hi sophia, thanks for keeping in touch.

>hi em, talaga? taga dun pala tatay mo. sarap talaga ng pangat nakaka addict. ngayon hinahalo na ang pangat at bicol express para mas masarap. malaki nga ang alon dahil open sea at konektado ito sa pacific ocean.

>hi carlota, thanks! thanks to acey too!

>pietro, i agree! thanks to acey.

>eye, thanks! acey indeed a good job here.

>hi shionge, thanks a lot!

>tink, acey is inspiring.

>atticus, salamat kay acey. salamat.

>sho, yes i do have a goldmine in our garden. hehehe... just kidding. part of my mission is to travel that's why i get to travel a lot.

>hi equi, sure. just keep in touch.

>jasper, hehehe... hindi naman. byahero at misyonaryo lang.

>kegler, oo nga. punta ka din pala. ayos ang kneeboarding. siguradong ma eenjoy ka sa CWC.

>redlan, oo binago ni acey kasi kakulay daw kasi ng tubig yung damit ko sa original na picture.

hindi kami dumaan ng legazpi pero hopefully mapopost ko rin ang mga pictures namin nung una kong pagpunta ng bicol.
