Ferry schedule Abra d’Ilog to Batangas City and vice versa

Ferry schedule Abra d’Ilog to Batangas City and vice versa

In Abra de Ilog roro depart daily to Batangas city. The port is a little outside the village itself and offers not much. There is a hotel and a diner, but that is about it. For the rest the buildings are port authority, terminal and offices. Montenegro has a schedule (more or less) and Besta Shipping Lines departs when reasonably full. Here are the departure times for Besta Shipping Lines: Boarding the Roro with the motorcycle: Departure times for Montenegro…

Carmel Inn, Catarman, Samar

Carmel Inn, Catarman, Samar

The newly build white and orange building is unmistakable a hotel. Just outside Catarman a barangay divided in two by the airstrip you can cross by foot during daytime. The bright color scheme of the outside is continued in the rooms. We booked 2 rooms, the orange and green one. Not much of a view from anywhere in the hotel, since it is build in an introvert way. And although nicely tiled in the bathroom it is all just a…

Driving Quezon Zigzag road

Driving Quezon Zigzag road

The old zigzag road in the Quezon/Bicol area also known as Bitukan Manok was some adventure on my last trip. On my way to Naga City I decided to sleep over in Atimonan, because of the bad weather, I passed this road because it is shorter than the newer road. I would not have missed it although it was a challenge. Steep climbs and narrow curves and a long slippery descent. You go through the chickens intestines I believe the…

Riding Nomad, a romantic and brutal lifestyle

Riding Nomad, a romantic and brutal lifestyle

I am a riding Nomad. And that may sound like a great lifestyle to some of you. Although I also come across people who do not like or understand it. The other day I had a meet&greet with a school and some of the teenagers asked me why I do not settle down ‘like most people my age do’….as in: be normal, get yourself some chickens and a dog and sit in front of the house woman!

Bus Schedule Dumaguete – Cebu and vice versa

Bus Schedule Dumaguete – Cebu and vice versa

Schedules are hard to find in the Philippines and not always reliable. Ceres Bus liner, the biggest in the country, provides regular busses between almost every city and barangay in the Philippines. The point is to find the right and most comfortable bus. Going with a regular bus can be a fun experience and you meet a lot of locals. Windows open, chickens on board. But also a stop at every corner and little to no comfort. In between the…
