Don't Be a Noni Juice

Our last morning Danvic and I decided to walk up to see the cross that overlooks Coron. What one guide said was around 200 stairs turned out to be 720 stairs…one way. We were huffing and puffing all the way up, but the end result and the (quite literally) breathtaking views were worth the hike. 

If you ever find yourself in Coron, Palawan [and I HIGHLY recommend this as a future destination!!!) I would take the hike up the stairs, get good and exhausted, then go get a massage on the way to the Maquinit Hot Springs. What better way to spend a day than a bit of exercise, and relaxation to unwind from hiking up (and then down) 720 stairs? My thoughts exactly.
Alas, it was time to say goodbye to Coron. We trekked up to the viewing tower of our hotel (of course it's a beautiful, sunny day when we're leaving) to take a picture.

Streets of Coron and a trike

 We had the same cab driver from the hotel to the airport and this time I got a picture of the mini Jesus near the AC vents. Needless to say, we were in good hands.
We always ride with Jesus
 While we were waiting at the airport to board our flight, we saw advertisements for what looked to be an awesome drink called Noni juice. Thank goodness we only bought one at first for everyone to try. This stuff was definitely an acquired taste...that none of us were able to acquire while trying to down it. Carlo and I decided to opt for different frappachino-esque drinks, while Danvic forced the juice down.
 I also got to meet 2 Filipino celebrities! They star in soap operas. We even talked them into letting me get a picture.
 And as the pattern throughout the week, it wouldn’t be a trip without a nice rainstorm.
Before: Notice you can't see the mountains like you can below...

After the rain let up a bit.

Imagine experiencing this storm on a small boat. Yeah, it’s rather unnerving. 
With another mini-typhoon our flight was delayed, but we finally made it back to Manila. 
Palawan, you did not disappoint.  I hope to see your sparkling waters again in the future!
