Diyos Mabalos Bicol

We went to Sorsogon to celebrate our daughter's 8th birthday. We booked our flight with Cebu Pacific for the price of the bus fare. We planned to stay in Sorsogon for two nights and another night in Albay. We really had no plan except to see Paguriran Island in the Bacon District in Sorsogon City. Our trip was from 27 November to December 1 so we only had to get a one day leave because it was a long weekend.

We left Manila early in the morning and after about less than an hour flight, we arrived in Legaspi City, the jump off point to Sorsogon. We took a tricycle to the Legaspi City Grand Terminal where we took a van going to Sorsogon City. The flight was so early that Angel slept on our way to Sorsogon.

Bantayan Island - a slice of paradise

Bantayan Island has always been one of our dream destinations. However, time and money constraints have always prevented us from going there. Finally, last March my officemate and I planned about going there with my family and her siblings. We searched the airline websites and checked out the only available long weekend after holy week, June 11 - 14, 2009. We will be applying for a one day leave in order to have a 4-day weekend. We finally booked our tickets with the Philippine Airlines: The first flight going to Cebu and the last flight returning to Manila in order to maximize our time in Cebu.

In search of Digyo Island - Inopacan, Leyte

Our plan to go to Tacloban started when we were able to buy our plane tickets from Cebu Pacific last October 2008. It cost us less than P3,200 for the the round trip flight for the three of us.

As we love going to beaches, we set aside a day to visit one in th Leyte-Samar area. We started surfing the web and finally decided on Digyo Island in Inopacan, Leyte. Without any idea on how to get there, we started researching via the internet. Luckily, there are a couple of sites in Multiply with pictures of Digyo Island, so we were able to ask for directions and cost of staying there.
