Cebu City is vast and I've had the odd very dodgey place to stay here. But a friend in Cebu booked me into Hotel Fortuna and at P750/night I was expecting something very average. This place is stunning, they have single rooms which are small but have a feeling of space. It's also very very quiet and away from traffic noise. Furthermore its in the heart of the old district and walking distance to the old historic sites. The hotel provides a complimentary breakfast of rice, egg and sausage and soooo lovely and clean and friendly. There's Wi-Fi which I could get in my room and the shower has hot and cold water.

Manila is a very big bustling city with clogged roads full of insane drivers, mopeds and tuktuks weaving amongs each other. Generally pavements are either very small, full of holes, crowded with street vendors or are utterly non existant meaning pedestrians must brave the edges of these roads, keeping eyes wide open for vehicles swerving in their direction. I was quite impressed to spend two days around the town without getting hit!

... upstairs, we all settled in to my bedroom to wait out the storm.
It wasn't more than 10 minutes before we felt water droplets, it took us a few moments to realize where they were coming from, and then it was almost pouring through the ceiling of our bedroom. Almost instantly, it seemed, the window locks gave out and the shuttered windows began slamming and the wind's howling amplified greatly. We all started yelling various things, grabbed ...
... Fun in the Philippines" day, with brilliant blue skies and dazzling seas of extravagant hues. With light hearts and great expectations, we motored off with the local kids riding the "surf" while clinging to the bamboo running boards as we picked up speed. Ten minutes into the crossing someone remembered that we had left the flippers, snorkels and masks behind. No problem, what is time in the Philippines?
We set out the second time at 11am, ...
