Gumaca by night


Day break at Polangui with sun rising upon Mayon Volcano. Great timing!

Cagsawa ruins, what used to be a convent

A sad thing the bell isn't there anymore


Probably a volcanic boulder

After taking a few pics, I was dead tired and wanted let my back rest for a while. And then there were rooms available Situated just a few steps from the viewing field is a small resort type of lodging. Fan room is at Php450.00 est. U$D 10.00, Aircon room with single bed and a private restroom Php 500.00 est. U$D 12 (of course this is what I opted for), and a family room at Php 700-750 est. U$D16.00

View from my room

After lying down for a couple of minutes or so, I went to a restaurant within the property and ate breakfast. Breakfast meals cost about Php75.00 above. Not much to do after this so, I decided to get off the road and explore what's beyond.

After punishing the scooter on terrain it wasn't designed for. I went on and checked out what Legazpi has to offer.
Here I am leaving Cagsawa ruins entrance.

If I only had more time, I'd go straight to Sorsogon and swim with the whale sharks. Saw a sign somewhere stating that it's just about 118kms ahead

Checked out Lignon Hill. Entrance is Php 20.00, you can see the entire Legazpi from the Hill top viewpoint. Other activities Lignon Hill offers are, Zip line, Paint Ball, 4x4 off roading, trekking, ATV rentals as far as I remember. It's a fun steep climb.
Parked just before the entrance is one of the 4x4 machines for off road.

Upon reaching the hilltop


The shy Mayon Volcano. Taken about noontime, when she doesn't feel like showing up herself.

Souvenir shop

Where a fastfood chain is and the souvenir shops are.

I wish I had a better camera

Time to go down, I'm hungry



Steep as steep can be


Can you say, hairpin turn?


Back to the gate entrance

I always look forward to eat at Biggs whenever I'm in the Bicol region, I just love their Burger and fries, fried chicken and their original blend of Iced tea. Although I'm quite confused with their concept as to the viands they offer, They're one of the best for me, aside from the food choices, It's home grown Filipino fast food.


Yes that's "Brick oven Pizza, Rock and Roll Iced Tea, and...Goto"
You'd be more fascinated when you check out their menu inside.
As usual, I ordered...

All Biggs has this 60's 70's look

More photo ops

The "before of my luggage bracket" still upright

Taking advantage while Mayon is in view. Taken in the afternoon


I enjoyed it more taking photos of the majestic Mayon in the outskirts rather than in the cagsawa ruins itself avoiding the common post card image.
