Mt. Pico de Loro ~ BP Conts

by Ivan Ignacio

The BACKPACKERS do not have a scheduled official climb for the month of May, (to give way for SURVIVOR ZAMBALES: Backpackers versus Guests to be featured in June) but that does not mean that we won't have a taste of our beloved sport; at least for some of us. We got an invitation through BP Conts to guide a group of friends in Mt. Pico de Loro in Ternate, Cavite. The three BACKPACKERS Conts, Heinz and Ivan journeyed through that familiar trail all the way to the Parrot's Beak.

Bagasbas, Daet, Camarines Norte

Surfing in Bagasbas

Just like mountain climbing, I've never thought of trying surfing when I was a li’l younger. I have never been that sporty type of girl. I didn't play volleyball or badminton or any kind of sports during my teenage years. I was more interested in arts and dancing and singing (ehem). But as I mature and explore the world, I came to realize that I’m missing a lot. So I've tried different kinds. And trying something new once in a while can give you a different kind of excitement. You’ll discover a different YOU.

Calaguas Island, Camarines Norte

The Magnificent Calaguas Island
By: Marion Erika Macapagal

Whenever I would reminisce or if someone would mention anything about Bicol, I couldn’t help but smile and share my own experience of its rich culture, beautiful sceneries, magnificent beaches, wonderful people and great food. 

And as I share my 7 day journey in the Bicol region, may you be inspired to travel more and visit this place (if you haven’t been here) and share it to the world too.
