Berto and I decided to fly to Palawan Island and visit one of the 7 Nature Wonders of the World, The Underground River. We hopped aboard a short hour flight and headed to this UNESCO world heritage site for a day of adventure.

It's official. I'm sick of travelling, airports, flights, etc. We had 4 flights in 24 hours to get from Krabi to Puerto Princesa. I actually slept in an airport for the first time last night, for a couple hours on a metal bench- not comfortable. Then we had a mean check in lady on Bangkok who was making Kelsea transfer her excess weight to my bag, even though in the end it's all going to be on the same plane. She must have had a change of heart though because in the end she didn't charge ...
