Place 25 – Day 2: Manila – Leaving Tonight!

We had our free breakfast this morning, bacon, eggs & toast! Curtis had a coffee and Kim had a hot chocolate. That started us off for the day!

We had a late start after that, just relaxing and getting some things booked!

We got bored of booking, as we had a LOT of flights to book in one go, so we nipped out to grab a coffee. We sat around having our coffee and just watching the world go by before getting back to the hotel to finish our mass of flight bookings. We’re very excited to finally get them booked, though, as we are booked for a few months and to some awesome places!

We have a flight out tomorrow to our next, big & awesome, location. The flight is at 05:15, so we need to be at the airport for 02:15, so we’ll be leaving here at 02:00! This means little sleep for us tonight, so a little earlier bedtime for us tonight!

That’s where we leave it for today, not very exciting but tomorrow will be super awesome!

We’ve been looking forward to going to the next place so much and can’t wait to get there!

We’re packed and just need to sleep, get up, grab our things and go!


Until tomorrow, Paalam!

Place 25 – Day 1: Manila 🇵🇭 – 6 Months of Traveling!

We arrived in Manila for our 2 day stopover late. We arrived at around 06:00 when we were meant to arrive at 05:15. Better still, our car hasn’t arrived either (this seems to be a trend!) So we had to call the hotel and wait for the transport. 

By the time we arrived at the hotel and checked in, it was 08:00 so we needed to get some food, though we were incredibly tired! We nipped to McDonald’s for a trusty mcmuffin! 

We then slept for a few hours before leaving to go to a shop as well as get some dinner. We found a huge hypermarket within a mall which we bought some snacks in before going to Pizza Hut for some pizza! We grabbed a coffee before we went shopping too, as it was cheap and coffee solves everything! 

That hair…

Other than this, we’ve not done much and nor will we tomorrow. These are rest days before we head to an awesome place!
