Gili T & Lombok

After completing our sunrise hike of Mt. Batur and jumping straight into the waiting minivan which whisked us off to the port. Fred and I boarded the ferry to take us across to Gili Trawangan (Gili T) where we would meet back up with Con and the group he had been travelling with for the... Continue Reading →

Bali

On the 2nd of April after very little sleep due to the sunrise tour of Mt. Ijen, I made my way over to Bali to meet back up with Fred and Con after being solo for a couple of weeks. The journey from Banyuwangi to Bali involved a short ferry crossing before around a 3... Continue Reading →

Jakarta to Bali

Before I really get into talking about the start of my time in Indonesia I want to quickly describe my journey from Cebu in the Philippines to Jakarta in Indonesia as actually rather a lot happened. My travel route wasn’t direct, I first flew to Singapore where I had a 2-hour layover before flying onto... Continue Reading →

Final Week in the Philippines

As I said at the end of the last blog, on the 20th of March I made my way solo from Malapascua to Panglao, an island connected to the bigger island of Bohol. The journey was rather a long one, comprising of a ferry, bus journey, taxi, another ferry and finally one last taxi. Taking... Continue Reading →

Malapascua

On the 14th of March, I flew from Puerto Princesa to Cebu City. The flight was once again uneventful however I was seated in the very first row of the plane, free of charge due to my seat allocation which was very nice. Extra leg room and all that. It was short lived however as... Continue Reading →

Port Barton

As I originally said at the end of the last blog about El Nido (sorry it was a little while ago, the Philippines is too distracting) I made my way solo to Port Barton on the 10th of March. The journey wasn’t too long but I must admit I was rather sad and a little... Continue Reading →

El Nido

The ferry to El Nido from Coron departed just after 1 pm and arrived roughly 5.30 pm. Which in comparison to some of the journeys we have completed previously is nothing, but something about the journey just made it drag. The ferry was also full so there wasn’t a lot of space for everyone onboard.... Continue Reading →

Coron

Upon disembarking the ferry in Coron at 6 am, after the 11-hour journey, the 5 of us made our way to the hostel we had pre-booked via hostel world. Now we were a little apprehensive about the hostel as it didn’t have great reviews and when we got there these reviews were confirmed. The place... Continue Reading →

Manila

On the 27th of Feb Fred, Con and I flew from Bangkok to Manila in the Philippines. The flight took around 3 hours and was as uneventful as a flight should be. Although Fred was a little disappointed as he was the only one who didn’t get an inflight meal. Although to be honest he... Continue Reading →
