We arrived at Sydney domestic airport at 6pm for our 9pm flight to Darwin. once at the airport I realized of all things, I’d forgotten my swimmers! we shopped around the airport and after not finding anything I really liked (being in domestic) we decided that we would shop around at either Darwin international or Manila airport. We boarded our cramped jet star plane, stocked up with home made sandwiches and fruit for the flight. In Darwin we arrived tired and irritated at 1am to find that half the airport was closed. We found a HUGE line for check in and were grateful to have carry on baggage only, skipping the line and heading to security. Once cleared we found a small lounge to slump into for a nap.... read more

So meine Lieben, hier also endlich mal ein Lebenszeichen von mir. Vorher war mein Internetzugang leider nie gut genug bzw. ich hatte nur mein Smartphone zum Schreiben. Die Woche in Indien war suuuper interessant, noch mal ein dickes Danke an Tina ohne, die ich hoffnungslos verloren gewesen waere in Mumbai. Die Stadt ist riiiiiessig, ihr koennt es euch gar nicht vorstellen und laut und soooo viel Verkehr. Es dauert ewig von einer Ecke zur anderen, sodass man schlecht planen kann, wann man wo ankommt. Das essen ist seeeehr wuerzig, aber auch sehr lecker. Bei allen Unterschieden wie kein Trinken in der Oeffentlichkeit gibt es aber auch viele Gemeinsamkeiten gerade was Wuensche fuer die Zukunft usw. angeht. Woher ich das weiss? Ich hatte das grosse Glueck ueber Tina einige ihrer indischen Freunde und Kollegen kennzulernen. Wir waren ... read more

After a five hours ride in a packed minivan with our wedding cloths/bags on our laps, a couple of tourists with the rest locals we finally arrived to our honeymoon destination. The road getting to El Nido is half sealed and the minivan fly’s along stopping occasionally along the road to drop off and pick up more people. When we finally arrived it was a pitch black village where we could hardly see each other and the driver informed us that it is our last stop. The locals just disappeared into the darkness on the small village paths leaving us wondering what to do. Our eyes finally adjusted to the candle light when we saw some tricycles and the friendly drivers offering us a ride to our hotel which was a big relief for us and ... read more

It took me a night bus from Chiang Mai, 12 hours waiting at Bangkok airport, a 3 hour flight to Clark, a two hour bus ride to Manila, another 10 hours of waiting in Manila and a short one hour domestic flight to arrive in my final destination, the gateway to Palwan: Puerto Princesa. I spent about 3 days in this crowded and (despite its reputation) dirty city. The main reason was to meet up with my travelbuddy and extend my tourist visa, as I would be spending more than 21 days in the Philippines. I stayed in a small hostel called Chilli Backpackers, unfortunately a 30-50 bus tricycle ride from the city proper. The visa extension was quick and painless, we were in and out of the immigration office within about an hour. There is ... read more

Discover the beauty at it's best, as Natural as Mother Earth created. After naming Palawan's * Underground River*, as one of The New Seven Wonders of Nature, now let me introduce you, another beauty of Palawan , called, * El Nido *. El Nido is a small mountainous Town of Palawan, surrounded by it's beautiful Limestone Mountains. To go to El Nido, you can choose to Fly Domestic Airlines from Manila, like Cebu Pacific or Airphil. Me, i prefer, Airphil , simply because it's delayed are not longer like Cebu Pacific, (many flights which takes hours of delayed.) But still it is your own choices on Airlines, or by Sea to Travel to El Nido. It is still the best to catch the early Plane, it is better to reach Puerto Princesa before lunch co'z mostly ... read more

Pohoda,klidek,tabacek. Neaky chalani tu brnkali na gitare,dobre sa pri tom zaspavalo. Jeden chalan sa vysplhal na plamu a zhodil kokosi. Na plame boli zarezi tak sa mu tam slo v pohode. Z batohu vytiahlo svajciara a dal sa do otvarania kokosu. Spomenul som si na sobotu,jeden talian tu rozbijal tiez kokos ale taky stary,co predavaju u nas na vianoce,s dvojnasobnym nozom a mal dost problemov s tymLenze tento chalan mal asi prax,po 10.min ... read more

Francuzskam som odporucil fajnove kolaciky a potom nastal problem so zebrakom. 2x ma chytil za ruku a furt knucal za peniaze,tak som tu spinu odsotil a debil sa smal jak splaseny. Uplne nervi do mna. Takehoto otravneho zebraka som este nezazil. V cestovke som bol opat skoro a zas cakanie na meskajucich ludi. Guide aj kormidelnik ten isty ako minule. Nakoniec sa nas nazbieralo az 9 ludi,ja, 3 rusi,3 taliani a 2 rakusania. Vsetko starsie rocniky. Zobral som snorchel vybavu a o 9/30 sme vyrazili na rozburene pole. Riadne fukalo,z toho boli aj velke vlny.No velke,ked to porovnam s nasou mini lodkou tak boli velke. Guide neoporucal v tomto pocasi ... read more
