Siquijor, the witches island

16 January 2019

I heard a lot of good things about the island of Siquijor and especially by its quiet side tourism. In addition it is the island witches so do not be surprised not to cross too many Filipino tourists here (while they still travel quite a lot in their country). They rather fear this island. Arrival on the island From Bohol there is a daily ferry to this island. It arrives in the city of Larena. On this island I a little…

Bohol and its chocolate hills

12 January 2019

After staying 2 days in Malapascua I joined the island of Bohol for 3 nights and specifically in Tagbilaran. Arrive at Tagbilaran I mentioned it in my last post, take the boat back since Malapascua is quite folkloric! I then took the bus to Cebu and then a taxi to “Pier 1”, boarding for Bohol. I could not take the first Ferry so I had to wait 1 hour. The crossing with Ocean Jet costs 500PHP + pier fee 25 +…

2 days in the tiny island of Malapascua

9 January 2019

After Coron my choice fell to the Visayas starting with Malapascua! Access to the island I knew that my transfer to Malapascua was going to be long! So I chose a direct flight to Cebu early in the morning with the Philippine Airlines company. Attention for internal flights checked baggage included 10kg only! Then you have to pay 200PHP per extra kilo. It was then the bazaar at the airport with everyone trying to put the maximum weight in their hand…

First stop in Philippines : Coron!

6 January 2019

After a first night in Manila I took a direct flight the next morning to Coron! Introduction Coron is an island of Palawan. But the city of Coron is located on the island of Busuanga! The island of Coron is quite sparsely populated. I took a room at Happy Campers and honnestly I highly recommend it! The owner is very friendly and very helpful. The sanitary facilities are new. There is no bunk bed here. Each one is bed and…

Mount cook and Tekapo

31 December 2018

After the night spent in Oamaru I drove to Pukaki! The weather forecast was pretty good but with my travelmate we preferred to wait until the second day on the spot to go to Mount Cook because it was announced without a cloud! Around Pukaki lake After a cloudy early morning the weather got a little up for a nice view of Lake Pukaki and Mount Cook: I had seen that Lake Benmore was pretty nice. The best view is…

From Dunedin to Oamaru

23 December 2018

After visiting the Catlins, I went to visit Dunedin, my colleague receiving me to her beautiful home! Then on the way to Mount Cook I stopped at two “penguins” spots before spending the night in Oamaru. Tunnel beach It’s really the mythical beach of Dunedin. Finally not too much beach is rather a rock 😉. After a short downhill walk (beware of the climb!) We arrive on this beautiful tunnel rock. After a small mud accident 😅 I went down…

Catlins – For animal lovers

9 December 2018

After leaving Wanaka I drove first to Invercargill and then to the Catlins! From Invercargill to Curio bay Bluff The only detour that seemed interesting before the Catlins at Invercargill is Bluff to take the mythical picture of the signals. This is the end of Route 1 which starts at Cape Reinga. Apart from that, not much tourist interest in the area (and especially when the weather is not good …). Waipapa ligthouse First stop in the Catlins to meet some…

Queenstown – Wanaka

4 December 2018

Arriving from the West Coast, Queenstown was the first stop. Maybe not the most logical order but my travelmate had planned a couchsurfing in Queenstown immediately. The walks around Wanaka were therefore done in a second time. I didn’t pass that much time in Queestown as I already visit it in april. Glenorchy The first day we went for a walk in Glenorchy. Knowing that the sky was quite cloudy but no rain! On the road you will see signs…

West coast and Arthur’s Pass

28 November 2018

After the hike in Abel Tasman and a day in Golden bay I went to the West Coast. Here clearly when there is a big sun is that you are lucky 😉. Pancakes rocks On the west coast, a first stop is to note: pancakes Rocks. These are eroded rocks in stacks of pancakes! A small way forward is made to have views on all parts. Arthur’s Pass After a night by a lake I went to Arthur’s Pass. Do not…
