Philippines Vlog: We traveled to Legazpi to see Mayon Volcano. Flying into Legazpi, we were amazed at the beautiful landscape, thousands of coconut palms cover the surrounding hills of Bicol, the southernmost region of Luzon. In the distance, the almost perfect cone of Mayon Volcano appears, rising through the clouds, 8,081 ft (2,043 m) in elevation.
Volcanic activity and tremors have been increasing during the past several weeks, prompting evacuations in the area. As the volcano simmers, the local news stations report; an eruption is imminent.
Mayon is a perfect stratovolcano and one of the most famous active volcanos in the world. The symmetry of this geographical wonder is mesmerizing, I could sit silently and watch it for hours. We were very fortunate to have a few clear days to observe Mayon. On our last couple of days a thunderstorm moved in and obscured the view completely.
After Legazpi, we flew back to Manila and spent our last day visiting Laguna, Los Banos and the American cemetery.
Overall, traveling the Philippines was the experience of a lifetime. The landscapes, the beaches, the mountains, the lovely Filipino people... all so beautiful, it made for an unforgettable experience.
To all who traveled with us "virtually" via our videos, thank you for watching.
