Summer is here

Warm Albay is the tagline of Governor Joey Salceda which is also the selling point for tourism in the areas of Albay, Masbate and Sorsogon (ALMASOR). The Bicol region is a perfect destination (near Manila) to visit in summer.

Catanduanes was not included  by Governor Joey and as part of the Bicol region, I am happy to post some pictures.

Catanduanes, the land of howling winds and unusual silence.
