A-ha, you weren’t expecting another blog post so soon, eh? Well, a few days ago, I went to Bicol (my mom’s home province) for a mini-vacation with some of my relatives. It was such a nice treat right after my classes officially finished for the term. The night before we went to Bicol, I stayed at my relative’s home in Alabang for the night (since going to Bicol from my house way up north is just carsickness waiting to happen.) A few hours later (around 4 in the morning), we left Alabang and went through a 9-hour road trip to Bicol.
For reference, here is how far Bicol is from Alabang (and my house!)
Honestly, I don’t really remember much of the 9-hour drive. I mostly slept (so I wouldn’t get carsick), listened to the entire Hamilton OST, and played video games. We arrived just a bit after lunch time and rested up for the remainder of the day. The following morning, we went to Panicuason Hot Spring Resort!
Look how gorgeous and serene it is:
Hehe, spotted this little monkey statue. A lot of people go inside the hoop/ hug and take pictures in it.
The water is so clear!
It’s such a refreshing sight to see as compared to the buildings, noise, and smoke I see on an everyday basis in the city. We spent the rest of the day chilling around the resort. (I know, it doesn’t seem like I was that productive, but I DID work on my thesis while I was on this trip! Haha.) (Yes, I am one of those people.) The next day, we headed up the hill to see the view.
