Palawan

I’ve prejudged Palawan. Labels such as “best island in the world” and “7th wonder” often throw me off. However, despite its newfound popularity, Palawan seems to stay true to its core, tipping its decisions in favor of nature. It paces its progress, not wanting to grow too much or too fast.

I need to backpack my way the next time around. There’s far too much to see.

There is a branch here waiting for me and a book to come back.

There’s plenty of bat jokes to go around with these tourist guides.Trained by international organizations, their spiels are bordering pun-ny and yet they pull it off quite effectively.
