It was time for Tokyo! From the beginning Tokyo was only a transfer destination on our trip, but we asked the travel agents to give us 2 days there so we could see the city. It was well wort it! We stayed at a hostel and went around to some different areas of Tokyo ans had a great time. We also had company from Sabra Johnson (Winner of “So you think you can dance” USA competition). A totally nice, cool and down to earth girl. Check it out!
Next stop was Philippines! We chilled a few days in the capital Manila and did some sightseeing. Then we took a flight over to a group of islands called The Palawaan Islands. We landed in the major city Puerto Princesa. There we went on a tour to see a nice underground river. We also took a minivan to a far away beach and small town called El Nido. That was paradise on earth! we lived over a small reggae bar on the beach and had a nice view of the ocean from our front door. After a few days there we went back to Manila.
The first couple of days in Bangkok we had fun, saw some religious statues and explored the local nightlife. We then left to the island of Koh Tao where I got my PADI Open water diving license and Martin got his advanced level license. After 4-5 days on Koh Tao we went back to Bangkok!
