Travel Blogs from Panglao

Last day in the Philippines on tenterhooks

A travel blog entry by


Ivy is stressed out. She doesn't show it as conspicuously as me but it sure takes it out of her. For days she has propped herself up in bed, with a laptop actually tucked into her lap, researching legal requirements for leaving the country. Can you imagine stressing about passing through immigration to leave your home State?

Easter jazz

A travel blog entry by


Yesterday was Good Friday. The Philippines is a religious country. There were services and processions scheduled throughout. Panglao's procession was to commence at the cathedral 15 minutes distant from us on a tricycle. I had remembered seeing the most fanciful pictures of Filipinos observing their Christian rituals in the past. They were …

Human Trafficking and Human Repression

With appointments for Ivy's delayed court case having been made, Ivy set about booking flights. Her first effort was by phone. Nothing like speaking directly with the agent. Right? The Cebu Pacific phone rang out on the first two tries. On the third, the conversation went on interminably. I can never figure why a common transaction in the …

Joy and Preparation

Ivy jumped, danced, threw her arms in the air and hugged me. She had been poring over blogs investigating Australian visa applicants' experiences after taking the necessary medical examination. Hers had been at St Luke's Hospital, Manila. Upon leaving the hospital, she had been advised that an Xray had shown up a scar on her lungs, indicative, they …

Washed Up and Washed Away

A travel blog entry by


We are spending prolonged times in our charming little room at Isis. A bar fridge is not supplied but we are close to the wireless router and the w fi signal is keeping us in ready touch with the world. How wonderful is IT when it works! And, good news, after Ivy chatted on and on (as Ivy does) to the manager this morning, the manager promised us a …

    A little gem in a varied minefield

    Isis Bungalows are located in a prime position on Panglao Beach. In a more developed global location, the position could scarcely be bought, such is its specialness. As it is, other accommodation establishments stretch either side of Isis with greatly varied attraction and service. The area has all the typical Filipino mix of loveliness and ordinariness. Be that as it may, once inside the grounds of Isis, travellers can relax in a beautifully maintained garden area with immediate access to a wonderful powder beach and a vista of local boats in a scintillating sea with a reef and distant islands beyond. If that view ever begins to pall, retreat can be made to the small but perfectly clean and practical bungalows or the charming little restaurant where good Thai food is served either in a sheltered area or outside under the palms. The price is reasonable, the young people serving are polite and happy and every client who stays here should leave with a lighter heart and happier disposition.
