From Daegu to Cebu

Other ways to use your Nicotine Gum… and something about Christmas.

PHILIPPINES | Monday, 25 Jan 2010 | Views [1099]

Landing ourselves a mediocre lunch at “Bad Ladz” on the towns pretty bay; where we’re graciously invited to use the house phone in order to call our resort for a pick up (this is free of charge as it’s so bloody far away and a virtual impossibility ... Read more >


Pigs, Puerto Princesa, a bookless bookshop and a “lucky” find…

PHILIPPINES | Saturday, 23 Jan 2010 | Views [969]

It’s early and it’s check-out time. We have a private bus booked to take us back to Puerto Princesa; we have a flight to Manila the next day. We’ve decided to discover more of the Philippines outside of the Visayas, so decided to spend Christmas in ... Read more >


Tiger, Tiger, burning…a hole in my pocket.

PHILIPPINES | Saturday, 23 Jan 2010 | Views [727]

I don’t know whether it’s because Palawan has turned out to be a trifle more costly than we expected, but it’s about that time when we both must seriously look into our pockets.   We must face the reality that we’ve lost a lot through not renting ... Read more >

Close Shaves and Moustaches

PHILIPPINES | Saturday, 23 Jan 2010 | Views [619]

Ever since we’ve been here, we’ve been meaning to take one of the island hopping tours, which range from the ultimate snorkeling experience, to the more picture postcard island dossing experience. We take tour C and go for the ultimate snorkeling ... Read more >

I am not a Number…!

PHILIPPINES | Saturday, 16 Jan 2010 | Views [557]

Yes, so as you can tell we really have been watching Patrick Mcgoohan’s face a little too much- really not a sensible choice of entertainment to watch on a remote island village. Oh well, “They won’t get it” and all that. Anyway, we’re still lapping ... Read more >

A little something on Mutiny…

PHILIPPINES | Saturday, 16 Jan 2010 | Views [746] | Comments [1]

It’s early; we’re awoken to the sound of waves lashing the shore and the fact that we had agreed to go kayaking despite the copious amounts of San Miguel consumed the previous evening.   Well, the early bird catches the worm and all that- so we ignore ... Read more >


The Long Road to Paradise

PHILIPPINES | Saturday, 16 Jan 2010 | Views [425]

After just an hours sleep and no time for breakfast, we’re not too pleased when our private bus decides to pick us up an hour late; meaning that there was enough time for breakfast after all but not if it’s to be served by our very “special” waitress ... Read more >


Puking in Puerto Princesa

PHILIPPINES | Saturday, 16 Jan 2010 | Views [736]

After a ropey one hour flight from Cebu (Stef almost misses boarding due to another incident with a toilet), we arrive in Puerto Princesa in a rather bedraggled state. We get picked up immediately by an over enthusiastic trike driver, promising ... Read more >

Going Nuts in Nuts Huts

So, it’s time to leave the peace and tranquility of Siquijor behind and head back to smoggy Dumaguette for a ferry to Bohol. The ferry to Dumaguette is fast and cheap. We don’t see any Dolphins this time, just a stream of sewage in the middle of ... Read more >


This one’s for you Mogwai

PHILIPPINES | Thursday, 17 Dec 2009 | Views [607]

On the way to Sandugan, we pass Larena’s small, sleepy town.   It‘s quite hilly and has a laid back feel to it; nobody seems in a hurry here. Our journey continues for quite a while after Larena, through a long winding road flanked by sky blue coastline ... Read more >


A Royal Cliffhanger

PHILIPPINES | Thursday, 17 Dec 2009 | Views [645]

So far there’s no witchdoctors in sight or people with caved in noses or crumbling faces; although on the ferry we do spot a man with a very flat nose that kind of joins his forehead with no visible bridge.   Poor guy- perhaps he’s going to Siquijor ... Read more >
