Palawan: Puerto Princesa City Tour

Our last full day in Palawan was spent touring the city. Unfortunately, the weather gods were not as cooperative as we would’ve liked, with the downpour beginning exactly the time we stepped inside the van for the tour. Talk about impeccable timing. Not only that, our trip to historical landmarks were cut short because of the weather condition. We weren’t even able to alight the van to take pictures by the baywalk because of the heavy rains. Besides, there was no view in sight.

That being said, our Puerto Princesa city tour’s first stop was at the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral. A few steps from the church is Plaza Cuartel, a historical landmark.

Palawan: Underground River

So many things on my plate (but this ain’t a complaint), hence the lack of updates on my blog. Another “problem” that resurfaces whenever I come back from a semi-hiatus is the nagging thought of changing something design-wise (mostly fonts).
