Our next Phillipine island hop was to Bohol, Panglao,and Balicasag Islands. Bohol is a huge island with a big port city call Tagbilaran and Panglao island is a smaller island just south of Bohol. We stayed on Panglao on a touristy beach called Alona Beach at a dive resort. From there we did a day trip to a tiny atoll reef island called Balicasag island. The waters around the island ...

About 15 minutes in, Holly, who had a cold at the time, suddenly became quite ill.. after going quite pale it was amazing how quick the usual pushy women moved well out the way! We had to get off the train before Holly fainted and decided it would be a good idea to eat before going any further.. having a quck burger in McDonalds we again carried on with our journey to the airport. By now it was 4:20pm and we ...
