    Stinky shit hole and dishonest owner. Sea too polluted to swim in, no beach, people quite nice though. Check out the cheesy karaoke/girly bars on Singapore Road!

    Great value at £12 a night. We got a welcome lemongrass brew and banana fritters from a family recipe on arrival. Free wifi, and pancakes tomorrow for breakfast.

    We headed out to Sepilok opting to take a taxi as the bus wasn't leaving until 9 and we wanted to make sure we could see the 10am feeding at the centre.

    20 minutes out of the city, we reached the centre where we were confronted by curious children on a school trip. They were "very proud" to speak to us in English and even taught us some …

    ... as it pounds into the waves and this kills the speed. I’ve seen 6 knots turn into 2.2 after a couple waves! So we were forced to either motor against the head sea or to bear off and sail, tacking along the way. We chose the latter as even with high power on both engines we could not have made more than about 4 knots against that sea. Our other problem was that we noticed on departure that our first reefing line was pretty badly frayed, and would not be usable until we could flip ...

    ... those dark days had passed.
    In order to get to Donsol we were forced to take a tourist minivan, which inevitably became packed to the rafters, and thus became almost unbearably hot despite the air con. I was worried that given our past experiences in The Philippines that the journey would take hours, but fortunately we arrived after only one hour and twenty minutes. It's difficult to explain my feelings whence arriving into Donsol, but to finally gaze upon the ocean ...
