Bicol : Albay, Sorsogon, Camarines Sur (Itinerary)

This is a preview post to my Biyaheng Bicol Trip last May. I cannot think of an easy way to give a preview except making a rough draft or summary of an itinerary when we were there. Thanks to Marx for preparing this before our trip, so it was easy for me to edit the plans that weren't pushed through and those that were added or changed.

Bicol : Albay, Sorsogon, Camarines Sur (Itinerary)
Mount Mayon, Legazpi, Albay
Mayon from "Magayon" in local tongue means beautiful.
Mt. Mayon’s legendary perfect cone is known to be a sight reserved for "virgins"
