Went on an amazing road trip with two friends from Dumaguete, Pelle and his girlfriend Rose. Hired a moped and off we went south from Dumaguete. Soon realised that my moped was totally knackered and might not make the next 20 kilometers let alone the 200 to Sipalay. So we stopped off in Siaton and found a local motorbike shop to fix it. 5 kilometers down the road I realised it was exactly the same! They hadnt done anything! Just taken the money! No big deal. We spent one day getting to Bayawan and spent a night there. Really liked this town, right on the seafront and very relaxed. Next day we set off towards Sipalay and I ended up with a flat tire in the middle of nowhere! Pushed the bike to a Galvanizing shop in the next village and the guy said it needed a new inner tube which he didnt have! So Pelle and Rose rode off to a nearby village and bought one. When the galvanizer put this in the bike it went flat immediately! New inner tube had a puncture!! Waaahhhh!!! Anyway after 2 long days riding in the hot sun we made it to Sipalay.
Next day we took a pumpboat to Sugar Beach and wow it was beautiful!! Had an amazing time!!
Thankyou Pelle and Rose for an awesome trip!
