Road trip to the Province of Sorsogon

It all started with a Piso Fare and a longing for a beach getaway… Everything seemed hopeless because all potential flights I searched were sold out.

One of my travel buddies, Doreen, suggested a backpacking trip to Subic Island, Sorsogon during the 2012 Chinese New Year holiday with a cheap budget. Since I’m a ‘dakilang kaladkarin’ and itched to have a travel escape, I immediately said yes! 🙂

We invited some of our friends in Law school whom we know are available (since all of us are just waiting for the Bar result): Kendi, Chris, Trina, Karen, and Adolf accepted our invitation. I also asked my cousin and 2 of my nephews to tag along.

Luckily, Chris’ dad is the PENRO of Sorsogon who managed to arrange our boat ride and food all for free! 🙂 Also, my parents allowed me to use our car for our roadtrip. So, we managed to spend around P220 each for the entire trip (exclusive of our fare from Naga to Legaspi and back) for the gasoline (P1k), driver’s fee (P300) and entrance fee (P35 per person) at the hot spring resort.

It was indeed a FUN trip! An unforgettable spur-of-the-moment travel getaway that I’ll forever cherish.
