“I love it here!” I exclaimed. And with a big grin on my face, I literally jumped in the air (I do that a lot).
I felt like a kid in a candy store. Saigon was my candy store, and there were endless surprises in this city; yummy, beautiful, artistic, and kindhearted surprises waited for me down every alley and around every corner.
What made my experience in Saigon even more delightful was the fact that I didn’t have any expectations for the trip. Ho Chi Minh hadn’t been a city I’d wanted to visit and only booked a ticket there because it was cheap and sunny. It came as a great surprise how amazing of a city Ho Chi Minh is.
I enjoyed my short stint in Palawan. It started off a bit dismal, but the sun came out and turned things around. It was time to head to Boracay! Getting there was an adventure in itself. I had to take another 5-hour bus ride to back Puerto Princesa, where I’d catch my flight to Manila, then to Boracay.
I booked a van ride from El Nido to PPS airport, and was instructed to be ready at 6:00am. Long story short, the van came at 5:30am, unbeknownst to me and I stood there waiting for an hour. I managed to get another van and headed to what I thought would be the airport in torrential rain. I had some hours till my flight, so I sat unbothered for most of my ride. Then we got into Puerto Princesa town...
