Bus ride in manila going to Cam Sur

Ok, travelling is kinda long before you reach Caramoan (we travel by land from Manila going there and plane coming back), maybe this is the main reason why it's not a popular destination to local tourist or foreigners alike. But once you reach Caramoan, words cannot described the feelings, the beauty and charm of the place. If I were a lover and Caramoan is my special someone, I can write beautiful poems for her, (ok..kinda cheezy!). It's a very cool and relaxing place..so very quiet and virgin islands, most of the islands are inhabited. We've seen live starfishes, strolling around the seashores and there's a lot of jelly fish in some of the islands.

jeep, 3 hrs. journey
(Beware: some of them have stings ;-) ). I love watching them swimming really coz i it's not everyday that I see them. The boat guy told us that it can grow as large as a big basin (kinda scary!).  & So, we scream our hearts out, played like little girls and made Caramoan as a background for the next Calendar (just joking, lol!)

We were booked in Rex Tourist Inn at the heart of Caramoan town but we stayed in the big new house maybe 3 blocks away, at the side of the Parish church. We just travelled to the big house and Rex Tourist Inn in between for our meals. Btw, their staffs are very accomodating & we had good and big servings of meals.  I'm impressed with their church built with old stones (they said that church centuries ago were built with eggs-I don't know how!). We heard the mass early Sunday morning and because Holy week is near, there are young girls wearing white dresses lined at the front of the church doing salubong. But we didn't understand the mass because they used different language (Bicolano), anyway it's good that we didn't skip the mass for that week. I can say that the people in caramoan are still very religious.

Back to the beaches.. i hope I can upload some of the pictures... (too many ;))
