The Bontoc journey was 45 minutes along the windy road, it wasn't too uncomfortable even though the Jeepney was crammed full! Once we reached Bontoc, Santi and Anna negotiated a bus to Banaue. Initially the driver was trying to overcharge but once they started speaking the lingo he realised his mistake and we got the journey for 150 peso a head. On the bus was a family from The Netherlands and another couple were trying to get on, sadly not enough seats for ...
... wait long for a Jeepney to get a ride back to Banaue. We had showers and got our stuff together so we were ready to catch the 7pm night bus back to Manila.

... came out of the cafe with renewed vigour and more importantly a *******n idea of where the ******* tits we are going to go. The main bone of contention had been where we went next, Donsol or Puerta Galara. Donsol is far east of Manila, Galara is west. Both seem like necessities. We eventually decided on Donsol but to do this we would need to get a bus from here to Manila then straight onto another 10 hour journey to Donsol.
