    Malapascua

    January 26, 2016 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    After bad weather warned that all ferries might be cancelled we took our chances! A drive to Tagbileran Port in Bohol, followed by a cancelled ferry and then a delayed ferry to Cebu we were met by our driver Wilson! Wilson then drove us for 3 hours to Maya port. Then we took a very small motor boat to a slightly bigger motor boat! Battled 2 meter waves for the best part of 45 mins. We got soaked, our bags got soaked! Then we took another small motor boat to the island of Malapascua!! It feels like a massive achievement that we have made it here and all to dive with Thresher sharks for 2 days before we make the return journey! Are we crazy? Almost certainly!!

    Ps. Forgot to mention the "popping mosquitos". Having squished them using the one-hand-swat ninja technique, the exploded fresh blood onto us...and not our own! 😝
