Stopover in the Philippines

Monday, 4 March 2013

After 3 1/2 years I’m making a brief trip to my home country Norway. On the way here, I and CME made a stopover in the Philippines from 16 to 27 February. “Superman” had already arrived in Manila from Norway just before we arrived there from Jakarta, and was waiting for us at the airport. Together the 3 of us took a flight later in the day to Kalibo, and then a bus (1.5 hours) to Boracay, where we spent most of our time in the Philippines. Boracay has changed tremendously since the last time I (and CME) visited, 13 years ago. I must say I miss the “old” Boracay. It was hard to find a reasonable room, and we ended up paying PHP 2000 per night.

On the night to 25 February we took the same route back to Manila, and had some time left for sightseeing before leaving for Hong Kong and Oslo on 27 February. I picked the “Dragon” up at the airport on Tuesday morning, 26 February. She is coming with us to Norway. Superman was staying behind in Hong Kong for a couple of extra days.
