      Batanas - Sabtang to Basco

      December 17, 2019 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

      Sleep in until 8am. Ride scooter to police station to return it to Gretchen. Greeted by police officers who take us to Gretchens house as she is preparing food for their party tonight. Meet gretchens sister-in-law and pay her for the bike and 2L of petrol (1000p + 300p). Say goodbye and walk to port cafe for breakfast. See a boat being dragged down the high street on way to cafe. Breakfast at port cafe - fishsilog and beefsilog plus coffee and buko pandan shake (310p). Walk back to homestay to check out and pick up bags. Walk back to cafe and relax there while waiting for 12pm boat. 30min Ferry back to Ivana Port (100p each) and jeepney from Ivana to Basco (23p ea). Arrive Basco 1:30 and head to PNB ATM to check if working. Still broken so decide to walk to find guesthouse and some lunch. Find a great cafe while looking for cheap guesthouse and have fish and chips, burger and two ice teas (220p). Internet down but up by the time we finish lunch. Walk back to check if ATM working but still out of action. Book homestay on Airbnb to save cash. Walk to find Airbnb homestay (not easy as directions just say to catch a tricycle! - no address, location map is wrong and picture is outdated). Find homestay after chatting with locals and let owner know that not everyone is on a tour and need directions. Check in and book flights to Manila. Need to get our USD back from previous guesthouse but do not have enough pesos. Walk to ATM and by a miracle it’s working! Withdraw 20,000p and head back to old guesthouse to get USD back. Walked town, watched sunset over port, had dinner at lunch cafe - shared squid & meatball rice and ice tea (200p), found a cool art cafe and had sweet potato fries and jelly coffee (145p) while chatting with owner, headed to bubble tea cafe and had taro milkshake and coffee milkshake (110p). Lots of kids caroling through town. Head back to homestay and get ready for bed around 9:30.Read more
