31.08.2004 Philippines by bicycle

 

 

In the first 20 days in the Philippines I achieved my first 900 km by bicycle, toiled on the mountains of Ifugao, went through the floods in Ilocos Sur and enjoyed a warm welcome by the Filipinos, who are really very hospitable and friendly!

14.09.2004 Visayas

 

  

Leaving Luzon we left the rain and the floods behind and we finally found the sun!

 

The island of Mindoro and its great people amazed us, we had 1 day off on the beach in Boracay (carefully avoiding the tourism industry), on Panay we descended the West coast (Antique Province), enjoying wonderful views.

26.09.2004 Mindanao

 

     

After Bohol, the last island of the Visayas is Leyte. After a short visit to the historic little island of Limasawa, one of the first visited by Magellan, we landed in Mindanao. We spent one day cycling around the island of Camiguin, before continuing on the way to the West. In the next days, we will leave the Philippines for Malaysia.

1.10.2004 Goodbye Philippines

  

With a total of 3,000 km by bike in 51 days of Philippines, we left the country. On September 30, after being surprised by Iligan (our favourite Filipino city!) and enjoying spectacular sunsets in Dapitan and Sindangan, we arrived in Zamboanga, just in time for the ferry to Sandakan (Malaysia).

Goodbye Philippines: we will miss your super-hospitable people and the awesome landscapes, but we will be glad to leave behind the roosters, the loud karaokes and the black smoke of the buses...
