Hi everyone, if you are wondering why there have been no new posts in the past two days, it’s because I have been busy crossing out one of my travel wish list for the year – a visit to San Vicente, Palawan, the location of the longest beach (about 14 kms!) in the Philippines. I first heard about it back in 2005 from two guys from Boracay who brought over their dirt bikes just to check out the beach and I have been wanting to see and check it out for myself.
The trip was not as difficult as I thought it was going to be and we tried to do everything we could in the day and a half we we’re there. We we’re able to check out the beaches but have not been able to visit the waterfalls, or go island hopping, or even take the trip to Port Barton but there might be a next time!
We took as many photos as we could and I’ll write about the trip soon.
We went sailing on a yacht around Bacuit Bay today and that pretty much took the entire day.
That’s it for now. I still have a very busy week ahead of me as I also want to see Nakpan beach as well in Calitang and Nagkalit-Kalit waterfalls here in El Nido (Yes we are still here but counting the days til we get back to the city) as well as, hopefully, get that diver’s license.
I also hope to do a walking tour of the town to compare with the many photos of the town I took six years ago to show how much things around here have changed. I’m happy about the many improvements but sad about how things are deteriorating because of disregard for town planning and environmental conservation.
I need to do a list of all the places to eat as well as accommodations in town too. It might also be helpful to do a list of Things to do and the likes. All those are quite daunting because there are now about a gazillion places to stay here, as opposed to back in 2005, as well as more restaurants.
So many things to do, so many photos to take, so many things to write about, plus so much work to do as well, and so little time. (So true.. so true.)
Well, until then. I just wanted to keep you guys posted.
Angku (and Lia)
