We going to use Facebook to post short updates and pictures from our trips, and use this blog to go a little more in detail about our trips.
|Ålesund Airport Vigra (AES) by air|
Don't know why Radisson have this ridiculous high prices but I think they have an idea that they just want business people as guests in there hotel.
|Bus route from the Airport to the Best western hotel|
Flight status on the 02.11.2016 No weather delay
The security check in Oslo Airport is by the why the worst I know and I have never meet security personnel that are bigger jerks then at Gardermoen Airport.
Manila Int Airport (IATA: MNL) - Tacloban Airport (IATA: TAC)
I see Tacloban Airport still is not completely renovated since the typhoon in 2013 but it's little better then it was last year when I was here, there was no windows and many of the walls and sliding doors was gone.
I see there is plans to build a new terminal beside the existing one, and I think that is a good idea since the terminal they have now is beginning to be too small and crowded, and there is just one big room whit 4 gates so here are much to be done yet. So long they have no plans to build a new airport in Palo in the coming years. Have not hear more about it so I guess they have set it on hold for the moment since the move was most to protect the airport from storm surges in the typhoon season.
D’Angelo hotel as you see on the map here was a hotel I have staying at sometimes, I see they have changed the name on the hotel to Hotel Canelsa so I guess they have new owners there.

Then we had to pay this corny terminal fee that is 150 peso per person, after that is was to sit and wait for about 2 hours on our flight. So we was quite bored after a while since there is not much to do there beside sit and wait.
|In Manila Airport terminal 3 on the way to get our bags|
After the security we find our gate 17 that was in the end of the hall, after sitting and waiting for about 2 hours for our flight to Puerto Princesa.
Was not much happened today just a slow pre departure day there we pack since we have to get up early so we can take the bus that go around 11 in the day.
- Overpriced both the food and the hotels
- Noisy more or less 24/7
- Almost non of the hotels have a decent standard and the one that have a decent standard have almost the same price as a 4 star hotel.
- You get bothered by street vendors everywhere even in the restaurant when you sitting and eating dinner.
But it's no problem really just a little inconvenient since we have a long day tomorrow whit travelling back to Manila.
The taxi scammers price wary from 750 php to 1400 php from the airport to Makati, We ended up to pay 300 php whit a meter taxi.
And have some time alone for a little while to clear my head from noise and people.
Well it's still much that need to be done here in Philippines before the tourists will begin to come in the same numbers like the do in Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia and so on.
They also need to look in to the terminal fees that they have both in the airport and for boat/ferry terminals. (some airports have this fee in the ticket price now I see) The fee is not the problem but they can begin to have it in the ticket price so it's easier for the travellers when they buy a ticket. And since it's rare they have any change for a 500 or 1000 peso so again remember to have some 50 or 100 peso bills in your pocket.
The other passengers don't think your kid are cute just for you the parents think they are when they make all that noise.
A little radio rapport:
The radios are also perfect if you travel many together or in a group, it's then easier to give a message to all at once, and you don't need to call every one of them.
We use it mostly on:
- Trips and sightings
- Photo shuts if we are some distance apart so we don't need to yell
- In airports
- Shopping malls
- And to give messages in general.
- It's free to use and your phone is ready to take incoming calls.
- 2 way radio for local communication, and disasters.
- Flashlight for the times the electric is gone or trips in caves, disasters, fire's and so on.
- Super zoom camera Canon PowerShot SX50 HS.
- Mobile phone in case someone outside my aria want to contact me.
