With TBEX Manila 2016 just months away I am starting a new series of posts showcasing different areas of the Philippines as seen through the eyes of Instagrammers. There are many Instagrammers out there who are taking good photos but never get the recognition for them. Very few are bloggers. Please feel free to “LIKE” any photo and explore their albums and also Follow them.
The Philippines has so much to offer anyone who makes the effort to get there, whether they are Backpackers or Tourists. The 7107 Islands of the Philippines have everything to satisfy the wanderlust of any traveller. Mountains, Waterfalls, Historical Buildings and Churches, White and Black Sand Beaches, Secret Coves……………….. You name it….the Philippines has probably got it. So whether you are attending TBEX Manila 2016 or just planning a vacation lets get started and show you whats on offer.
The first post in this series is The Mayon Volcano. I have scoured relevant hashtags and found 21 Instagram photos of Mayon Volcano that caught my eye for you to enjoy.

Symmetry – As soon as we heard that this volcano may erupt any time me and my photo buddies booked a flight hoping for a chance to see actual lava flows. It was already alert level 3 at that time. Her name is Mayon, the most active in the Philippines and famous around the world for its perfect shape. During my 1st solo photo exhibit this image was bought 5 times. Hot as pancakes! Many thanks to our awesome friends in Legazpi and #Spicyalbay #mayonphotographyclub #mayonvolcano #reflection

One volcano puts out more toxic gases – one volcano – than man makes in a whole year. And when you look at this ‘climate change,’ and when you look at the regular climate change that we all have in the world, we have warm and we have cooling spells – John Raese

You can add-to-cart all equipment, all brands in the world all you want — technical rope, gas mask, harness, helmet, shoes, Black Diamond, The North Face, MSR, anything! But, son, no amount of money can buy a pair of iron balls.

||Black|| This was the last time I saw her before I left home. After this, it always rained, the wind blew a little hard for a couple of days and the sea was filled to the brim I thought it could overflow the port.
What I saw instead on the day I left was a rainbow, as if reassuring me that life’s going to be just fine even if I can’t win it.
