Moalboal / Farewell to an old travel companion

Before we left Bohol/Panglao I had to say goodbye to one of my oldest travel companions, sniff.
Glued it 5 times with 3 different glues but now I had to face the truth. Nothing I could do.

There are many stories to be told, for instance how to get a local SIM Card and how to set it up so that internet works.
It is not Kafkaesk but something words fail me to describe.
We also bought a play game for Lena as well, for just 30 CHF with a gazillion surely licensed game, camera, music etc. on it (CD-R KING). It actually would be almost the perfect thing but there is a catch. We had to go 3 times till we finally had a device where also the battery was working. The first time we went, not only the battery was broken but also the start button. Now the kids finally managed to play Biene Maya (Lena finished level 1, Ada Level 4) and as we speak the start button is broken again. Including the demo model that is the 3rd device where that happens. The kids are very sad.
Anyway, we went back to Cebu and had to prolong our Visas. 270 CHF and half a day were the investments (not including 2×100 Peso trousers rental).
We now have flights to Kuala Lumpur and 5 days later to Camobdia.

Cebu Jumalon Butterfly Sanctuary. Very few living butterfly but the guide was enthusiastic and it has a strange amateurish charm. There also is a museum:


From Cebu we went to Moalboal (West Cost of Cebu Island) Sea Turtle House Resort, where we are now.
Small, quiet and right at the beach. A nice setup. Just the room is somewhat sub-optimal. And we pay 54$ daily eastern surcharge!
We can go snorkeling right from the resort, today even Lena came to the riff edge and she now really uses here mask to see the fishes. At low tide the abyss is just about 50 meters from the shore line. We saw 2 big sea turtles flirting.

We need a tricycle ride of about 7 km to Moalboal:


Here the resort:

  1. Bei uns ist der Osterhase vorbei gekommen! (Siehe E-mail) der Winter hat uns immer noch fest in den Händen. Wir wandern aus wenn es nicht bald wärmer wird.

  2. Deine Mutter wahr auch traurig als Ihre Bergschuh sohlen sich auflösten, nach dem besuch auf dem Stromboli!!
