Hello dear friends!
The past few days were a delight. We planned to leave Sabang for Port Barton, but on the way (on the boat) we stopped at a wonderful resort called Coconut Garden Island Resort. I hopped from the boat and asked if there is a vacant room. We were very happy to find out that we could take on cottage. It was incredible. There is nothing there but white sand, a few cottages and coconut trees. The restaurant there was also quite good. We've spent there 3 days of lying on hammocks, reading books and eating coconuts (we cracked them ourselves! Using rocks and a 5Kg hammer...)
We have also had a one night of drunkenness, with 5 shots of Rum for me and (only :P) 3 shots of Vodka for Dana. We spent that evening with a very nice swedish couple we met on the resort.
After those wonderful three days we took a boat to the very disappointing Port Barton. The next morning we were on a Jeepney heading to Roxas, and from there, to El-Nido. The bus ride was something to remember: The bus didn't have air-conditioning, to we spent the 4 hour ride with open windows. The problem is, that the road wasn't paved, but was a dirt-road. We had to wash our faces for several minutes afterward in order to get the dust off...
El Nido is amazing. It sits on an archipelago, and we will take some boat rides that will take us to several islands. Also, we plan to try a scuba diving day with two dives. Maybe, if we will like it, we'll take a diving course some day (an excuse to go to Thailand...)
I'm sorry to say that I cannot post pictures on this post. There is something wrong with my memory card. The pictures are there, but I think there is some sort of a virus on the card... Hopefully everything will turn out for the best when we'll get home.
Al the best,
(P.S. The best of luck to all of my friends who will take / took the Google Jam challenge!)
(P.S. #2: Dana says "Hi!")
