We thought we would try to island hop via ferries from Boracay to Donsol. We thought our best bet was to turn up at the terminal and see what we could figure out. We asked around but got nothing but blank looks. There was a big boat leaving to Manila so we decided to take that and then fly down. I think elementary school children could come up with a better system for buying tickets than how these people were doing it.
When we walked onto the boat we were shocked. It looked like a refugee boat. The floors were covered with bodies strewn on cardboard. There were rows of metal bunks with not mats teeming with sleepers. We investigated the boat and found that there were no chair anywhere except for in the cafeteria. We went in there and sat for a few hours and had a bite. After getting bored with that we went to claim some greasy floor space on the deck. And we laid there for the better part of the fifteen hour journey. I was still able to sleep because I am used to that kind of thing but Brenden was not too impressed.
