Trip to Bicol
Thursday, April 19, 2007

The photo on the right is a picture of the ferry boat which brought us to the island of Catanduanes. It is my younger kid's first time to ride on it and although we paid for the air-conditioned area, my kids stayed in the terrace most of the time. Well, they could not resist the view (pictures below). The beautiful Mayon volcano can still be seen from afar.

Most of the passengers who were with us in the boat rode in another bus which will carry them to Pandan, Catanduanes. That's why everyone was in a hurry to leave the boat when it reached the pier. I was surprised to see one bus filled up to capacity even on its roof (picture below) while we had our refill of gasoline.

The road from Virac to Bagamanoc is already cemented (picture below). This is a great improvement. On my last trip here 7 years ago, it was rough road all throughout from Virac to Tabugoc.

As we move on to the rough road, we see more and more of nature - waterfalls, rivers, plains, and hills. We saw lots of different kinds of animals. Our first near encounter of a carabao (picture below) made us decide to go into a hike to the mountain with the kids riding in a carabao.
