Quezon & Bicol Getaway

Jean Tiston

I really wanted to travel this year but 2020 was a whirlwind of unexpected events. A goal of mine is to visit every province in the Philippines and I like creating itineraries where I can visit multiple provinces in one trip. So here's a trip to Quezon and Bicol, the southernmost regions of Luzon island. Lots of beautiful beaches and we'll get a glimpse of Mayon Volcano's perfect cone on the way. #SeekerChallenge
