One of the things I notice here in Norway is that they have all sorts of clubs or organization and one of them is Flight Simulator Club. We were in their annual weekend get together because my husband was helping out at the cockpit (so nothing would go bananas!).
One of the organizers is an SAS Employee and was able to borrow an MD90 aircraft. The attendees slept on the plane (if they ever slept at all the whole weekend!)
We left Zambales on December 28 and stayed one night in Manila. We took the boat from Batangas to Romblon the following day. What a ride! Our guests decided to take the non-aircon area and so we all decided to stick together. Bad idea with 3 kids!
The boat does not have security on the sides. A child could easily fall off aboard or an adult for that matter. It was really warm and very uncomfortable.And yes, I saw some baby cockroaches. I hardly had any rest the whole trip.
Boats from Batangas to Romblon – Daily /Manila to Romblon – Once a week (Mondays, I think)
ANYWAY, I FORGOT ALL THE DISCOMFORT I HAD IN THIS 12 HOUR TRIP WHEN WE GOT THERE. ROMBLON, THE MARBLE ISLAND OF THE PHILIPPINES, IS BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN AND FRIENDLY.
