Nestled between mainland Palawan and Panay Island, Cuyo is definitely not your usual destination. The trip to the island alone tests a traveler’s patience and enthusiasm.
It was a good thing I was on a mission when I went to this part of northeastern Palawan, because if I were my traveling self, it would have been a lot easier to just abandon that trip when the ferry that we were riding went back to Iloilo City three hours into its journey.
It’s been a month since I left for Cuyo to administer the admission exam of the University of the Philippines there, but up until today, I remember that trip like it only happened yesterday.
The grueling 16-hour ride from Iloilo City, the best tinolang isda (fish soup) I’ve ever tasted, the happiest faces, the historical sites, the closest possible encounter with Ploning, the massage that would have cost us PhP5,000.
I promise to blog about my Cuyo adventure soon. I am just carefully curating my photographs and working on some previous assignments, but I will come out with an interesting read on this one.
So, hang on there, okay? Love and light, everyone. Go, juanderlust! 😀
