Here we go again, I am about to embark myself on another long odyssey, to set sail again on a set of Provinces. A Second Series but unlike no other, this time, it is bloodier and harder. And I call it “THE SOUTHERN LUZON CHALLENGE”. I, your Pambansang Manlalakbay, Armie “Happy Loner Traveller” Yuson would take an Adventure on these Provinces, namely Quezon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay and Sorsogon. This challenge is the same as my First Series in Northern Luzon, a 1,500 Philippine Peso Budget for each Province, where and how far would it take me? Would it still be a success for the second time around? Well, here is the story… I was only given six days to complete my mission in these Five Provinces situated in Southern Luzon. My First Province ... read more

For so many years now ever since my mom died I promise to myself that there is only one place in the world that I would like to spent half of the year on my retirement years and that place is Legazpi city. For the past to 2 years we were building our retirement home in Legazpi and now it is almost done. This house is a very special house because this used to be our ancestral house and we decided to renovate it when my mom passed away. Legazpi is a very beautiful place and a rising city in the Philippines. Bicolanos(local people) are very friendly and always happy. You can also find one of the most wonders in the world which is mayon volcano with her perfect cone. Bicolanos love spicy foods cooked in ... read more

It was Holy Week when my family went to Legazpi, Albay. It is the home of the famous Mayon Volcano, known for its perfect cone. I had a great feeling that this trip to Albay would be so fun because I was with my relatives. We first went to the Cagsawa Ruins, where we met a kid who knew how to take good pictures. We paid the kid 100 pesos or $2 to take our pictures. After that we went to the adventure park in Albay. This is where you can find the famous Zipline. It is very cheap and you will get a chance to look at the breathtaking view of the city of Legazpi. Another thing you can do in Albay is ride an ATV and take an adventure trip to the Mayon Volcano. ... read more

I have no plans about my transfers and I have a lot of time on my hands so instead of taking the plane, I took a bus from Tacloban city to Manila. At first, I wanted to stay the night in Samar but I couldn't find the Archeological museum so I just moved on. I took a risk by taking the last ferry to Matnog. It was a risk indeed as I spent the night sleeping on a non-moving bus. So instead of about 12 hrs, it took me 24 hrs to get to Manila. I was still happy to take the bus though as I get a glimpse of the Mayon Volcano. All those pictures from my textbooks are now right before my eyes.... read more

This is just my personal experience during my trip to Misibis Resort in Legazpi last April 14-16, 2010 when I facilitated an incentive trip for our Resellers (our group is composed of 88 pax, mostly business owners). Since I am handling the marketing and communications group of our company, I was tasked to ensure that all the needed preparations are well taken cared of. This means helping the team (2 product managers) plan the entire trip from check-in to check-out including room assignments, F&B arrangements, turndown gifts and activities for each attendee. For such a big group, preparations are indeed tedious. And since most of our guests have attended similar incentive trips sponsored by other vendors in our industry, we need to be critical and meticulous with our preparations. Gifts and other items On April 13, ... read more

Happy Independence Day! The Philippines still got a long long way to go to know the real meaning of nationalism. Don’t worry, I won’t be writing anything about my frustrations and all that, I just wanted to say that I’m proud to be a Filipino anyway … always will be. And besides, the public holiday gave us this long weekend which we intend to spend away from the chaotic city living & the H1N1 scare! We boarded the Legaspi bound plane at 6:00 in the Morning; Ger, Ren, Mark and I will be the first ones to arrive in Legaspi and four more people will be on their way later on. It was starting to rain in Manila when we left but it was bright and sunny when we arrived in Legaspi (surprisingly on time after ... read more
