    Sebaste

    August 14 on the Philippines

    Hey ihr Lieben, nun sind wir endlich in Sebaste angekommen! Es war eine kleine und aufregende Reise mit dem Van. Die Landschaft ist atemberaubend schön und die Menschen so unglaublich gastfreundlich!
    Morgen werden wir zu einem Wasserfall gehen und natürlich ans Meer!
    Bis bald und macht euch keine Sorgen, wenn der nächste Post erst in ein paar Tagen kommt.
    Bis bald, das Alonz

    Bacolod

    April 26 on the Philippines

    New dinning experience: arrived at the small roadside restaurant, they accompany you down the street to the fish market, you select and pay for the fish that you want, stroll back to the restaurant and in a few minutes your fresh seafood is ready and served.

    In the city there are some random traffic lights, other than that, there is not one stop or yield sign, and yet everybody patiently waits their turn.Read more

    Boracay

    April 20 on the Philippines

    "Try not look like a tourist" they said. Then how come everywhere I go, its "Look a foreigner !!" ?

    Another than an obnoxious, rude, arrogant, women (I think Russian) at the ATM yesterday, I have met only one other foreigner, a Canadian photographer. That's until I arrived in Boracay, a proper tourist resort island !!

    First leg today was a 50km cycle, and then a 4 hour ferry across to the island of Milay. Then a second ferry to the tourist island of Boracay.Read more

    Tibiao

    April 23 on the Philippines

    A not so early start, then short ferry crossing from Boracay back to the mainland. Again heading south staying on the west side of the island.

    Late afteroon once it cools down, the locals come down to the beach to swim. Also a number of homemade kites being flown on the beach this evening.

  • Day11

    Anini-y (Antique)

    April 24 on the Philippines

    Today was a bit further than normal covering 120 km, with the temperature peaking at 40 deg C .... intense !!

    Dinner tonight was at the resort. Free entertainment with the patrons singing karaoke. Nice beach setting with hot springs. Nice way to end the day.

    Boracay

    April 22 on the Philippines

    Spent one day more than planned on Boracay Island. To much fun !

    Mangaged to get in some scuba dives which was really great. The reefs here are in pretty good condition, and the dive centers are really good. Also the Dive Masters seem well trained and were really helpful.

    Now how's this, in four days time the complete island will be shut down for tourism for six months, effecting 35,000 employees ! Can you imagine also the loss of income ? Already my last night there the island was noticeably quieter. The main street is to be widened, proper storm water drainage and waste water system to be installed, illegal buildings (including hotels) are going to be demolished.Read more

    San Carlos

    April 27 on the Philippines

    You know it's been a rough day when you finish your day with an average speed of 11.3 km/h. Had another dog chase me on one of the climbs, and the only energy I had left was to tell it to "go away".

    Crossed over the island from one side to the other and past another volcano. The peak was engulfed in cloud but still spectacular.

    Needed a new cell phone cable, and ended up spending the evening with some new found friends from the store.Read more

    Bacolod

    April 25 on the Philippines

    This morning start was before sunrise and on the road by 5am. The only life was dogs lying in the road licking their you know what ... and waiting for the sun to rise. Was chased by one dog who obviously doesn't like foreigners.

    Stopped alongside a beach for a rest and a local came out and insisted that I wait. He went home and fetched some food. Not sure of the name, but made from rice and coconut and wrapped in leaves. Very tasty.

    Another ferry crossing, this time from Iloilo City across to Bacolod.

    Day 112: The Perils of Tropical Travel

    October 5, 2016 on the Philippines

    First proper day in Boracay. We were pretty keen to hit the beach, but unfortunately the weather wasn't looking great. Very overcast, low clouds and dark clouds on the horizon, though it wasn't actually raining. Shandos had a short swim while I lazed on the beach, then we had a wander over to the nearby outdoor shopping mall.

    We'd hardly gone anywhere before it started sprinkling. First stop was an ATM followed by a bakery where we bought lunch pastries, followed by a trip to the convenience store for beers and some snacks.

    By the time we'd finished it was raining moderately, so we retreated to our bungalow and spent the rest of the day reading and relaxing. It's a nice enough spot, though our room is much shabbier than we'd expected from the photos.

    By evening the rain still hadn't let up, and if anything had actually gotten heavier. We ducked out in the early evening to grab a burrito at a decent looking place we'd seen earlier in the day, but that was basically the end of our adventures for the day.

    Disappointing!
