Trip to Palawan
We loved Palawan so much the times we
have been there, we built a small vacation
home/rental on some property we
purchased. (Let us know if you want to
borrow it some time!) The new plan is to
go there when we visit rather than explore
around the country.
Palawan has only about 1 Million people,
so it is rather sparsely populated,
generally untouched by human hands and
very peaceful and relaxing. This trip we
decided to explore the area where our
cabin was built, near Aborlan/Narra.
The highlight was when we went to Isla
Arena (or as we call it "Turtle Island") and
got to see a baby turtle sanctuary. For a
small donation, Allyssa got to free one of
the turtles, which she named "Free-da".
As much as we tried to convince her
otherwise, the official spelling of "Free-
da" is A-L-L-Y-S-S-A.
We also went to the Tabon Caves, the
"Cradle of Philippine Civilization" where
evidence of early Filipinos was found
