Nov 27, 2010 - Hellride to Princesa

För ovanlighetens skulle ville Walle vara i tid, så vi gick upp i ottan och stod redo redan femton minuter före angiven avgång med folkabuss mot Puerto Princesa. Ca 40 minuter senare började både Walle och Stina bli något otåliga, men då plötsligt en tricycle från ingenstans och meddelade att vi var tvungna att ta oss till en bussterminal för att lasta på vår packning, istället för den så fantastiska upphämtning vi blivit lovade dagen innan. I sin naiva tro antog vi att detta var det enda problemet som skulle uppstå med resan, men ack så...

Aug 19, 2008 - Philippines

Hey guys, we are currently in Palawan, a large island in the South West. We are staying in Banwa Art House which is essentially a very funky laid back hostel, the phrase "chill out" is used quite alot. The hostel is covered in local art work but the centre piece is a veranda that has walls made from bamboo and long green vines.

The food is not to my liking, it's practically all vegetarian but not in a good way; lots of bland pasta...

Jun 27, 2008 - Puerto Princesa (Palawan)

Vole a Puerto Princesa, la capital de Palawan. Fui con un gringo/canadiense/ingles(?) y trate de ir en combi a El Nido, pero los asientos eran para enanos y ademas era como 1 asiento para 2 personas! Me sentia claustrofobico desde antes de partir, y eran como 6-7 horas de viaje! Asi que decidi quedarme en Puerto Princesa. El hostal resulto muy bonito, todo de madera, y con una terraza con hamaca, y preparaban limonadas muy buenas. Al dia siguiente fui con un gringo del hostal al rio subterraneo de ______, que tiene como 4-5 km de largo y es...

Aug 25, 2007 - Palawan

We arrived in Puerto Princesa on the island of Palawan in the south east of the Philippines. Everyone we met on our travels through the Philippines raved about this place so we thought it was best we come and check it out! How removed these places are from the hell of Manila! As I keep saying as soon as you step outside of Manila it is so beautiful here. We stayed in one of the nicest guesthouses we have seen so far for 2 nights in Puerto Princesa, basing ourselves there while we took a day trip to the subterranean river. With more...
