    Marajò, land of buffalos and bicycles

  • Northern Palawan

    Northern Palawan
    The Calamian group of islands in Palawan intrigued me for so long. Busuanga Island, being the biggest and most populated, is the jump-off point. You can get to Busuanga in about an hour by plane or 14 hours by sea travel. I fell in love with this place in 2007 on a spontaneous weekend getaway. I was raving so much that I made a second trip, and this time, I made reservations and a list of places to see.

    Last summer me and the missus went traveling to Malta. While Malta is a really beautiful country, I think it's definitely worth taking a boat to the nearby island called Comino. Comino is a deserted little island with 2 small hotels and otherwise nothing. That's right: NOTHING!

The history of the name 'Spinalonga' is in itself subject to conjecture but it is widely accepted that its roots lie somewhere in the Olous, Olondi, Elounda location and the words meaning long and thorn. Spinalonga is actually the name of the sizeable but slender peninsula and on maps the small island is identifiable by the name Kalidon.

The truth is it’s still unclear where Odysseus actually existed or whether he was from Ithaca (the most likely it’s that Homer was from the island or at least lived there).
