Iâ€™m now at the airport close to Boracay, waiting for my flight to Cebu and Palawan. One week ago I met Cesar, a Filipino friend from Oslo, at the airport in Manila. He has been with his family in Manila, and we decided to spend some days together in Boracay while we were both in the country. Last time I went to Boracay there was a big typhoon hovering over the island 3 days before we arrive. The stay last time was not pleasant and I had almost discarded Boracay for future travels. But I decided to give it one more chance when I planned my trip.
But now Iâ€™m heading for Palawan. Palawan is an island much cleaner and quieter than most other places in the Philippines. I was there last July and I will stay 2 days at the same resort as last time â€“ Coco Loco Island. Simple accommodation, white beaches and good diving opportunities. I will meet a female friend of mine, Yeng, which I met on my last trip to Bohol. She has never travelled outside Bohol/Cebu before and I promised to take her for one week vacation if I returned to the Philippines. So I kept my promise, and now she is on her way from Bohol to Cebu. Then we take the plane together to Palawan. She has an aunt there as well, so she will cook for us tonight and also join us for 2 days at Coco Loco Island. After that we probably go to the north of Palawan and take a plane from there to Manila. I donâ€™t like Manila much, so 2-3 days is the maximum stay there. Well, time to board the plane! Ciao!
