The pick up was at 7.15 this time, plenty of time for breakfast but lucky it was finished before 7, the bus was there by then, this time we were the final pickup.

We ate some rice and calamari which for a portion we were given 5 rings!!! of which 3 we could not get our teeth through so passed onto the dog and even they spat them out!! That is saying something! We safely reached Puerto Princesa earlier than we thought and were dumped out ...
...

We have a few days to spare before we head to a quiet isle, so we figured we should see one of the new 7 wonders of the world.
