Philippines 23 24 and 25 -04-2016

On the 23th I tried to get a ticket for the night bus to Batad but the tickets where sold out because of the weekend so I had to decide quick because I had booked my guesthouse in Batad for the 24 th. So the decision was taking a day bus at 11.00 am to Baguio and as told I could take a mini van from there to Banaue and from there a tricycle to Batad. What I did not count for that the first part to Baguio would take 8 hours. So I arrived there at 19.00 hours and had to stay there over night. I had to pay to much for a crappie hotel and take a minivan the next morning at 08.30 am. The minivan to Banaue took till 14.00 and then a tricycle to Batad. so I got to the last stop at 15.00 pm and then I had to walk an other 25 minutes in to the little village Batad. There are no roads because it is build on steep slopes.But when I arrived the view was great from my hostel, and the beer tasted better then ever.The next morning I arranged a 12 year old guide who would take me to a view point and to a waterfall. I just tell you it was hard and took 5 hours. but here ar the results.
