Every two or three months, I take the car and drive down to Bicol to visit our office there. It takes me 7-8 hours. That’s 7-8 hours of being able to enjoy the view of a changing landscape from industrial, to commercial to farm lands.
The view of Mt Mayon in Legaspi doesn’t get old nor a visit to the Cagsawa Ruins, where you can also buy the cheapest pasalubong and the cutest baskets and sinamay products. Aside from the famous Bicolano spicy dishes, a must try is the toasted siopao and First Colonial Grill’s ice creams. My favorite is the combo of Sili, Pili Nut and Tinutong na Bigas (Burnt Rice) ice cream flavors.
