One Friday night during my years waiting tables, I picked up a shift for a co-worker. What? Why is that? A dog is a dog. My Filipina friend have brought their dog which was mixed Damatian and Westphalian hunt dog to the Philippines. Maybe the airline you have booked don´t allow the dog inside. Did you not asked the travel agency first if the dog is allowed with you in that plane you are flying to? Sorry to hear about that. I still hope you can bring the dog with you. Good luck patattina!
Boracay is a small island 315 km south of Manila in the province of Aklan. Famous for its powdery white sands and pristine blue waters, Boracay is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines. It has over 350 resorts and about 2,000 rooms to accommodate guests, which range from luxury hotels to budget-friendly inns.
Business travelers usually are rushing to make sure they don’t miss their flights, so when they’re already at the airport is not the time for them to discover that one of their bags weighs a pound or two more than the airline carrier’s maximum weight limit (50 lbs. in the US). And using a bathroom scale to weigh luggage is cumbersome and unreliable. And since most travelers end up bringing home a bit more in their luggage than they brought with them originally, it’s important for them to be able to weigh their luggage prior to their return trip (for which the baggage weight restrictions may be different than the ones for their outbound flight).
One tip for the frequent traveler: Bring one of those garbage bags (industrial use) in your carry on. You can use this to wrap your luggage not only when they burst open but also when you travel to rural areas and your bags will be placed at the back of the vans. Then, they are protected from rain and dust. We do this all the time and often our drivers ask for it as they, too, want their luggage protected.
Hey Ashutoshhbti, summer is the driest and busiest months in the Philippines (from March to May). But the best season for me is between November to February because the temperature in general is cooler and typhoon season is over so you can enjoy days of beautiful sunshine.
TeriStohlberg – You can sometimes get a really good buy on a used RV by buying it privately, but be sure you have someone go with you who knows something about RV mechanics if you consider doing that. I would suggest that you look for something that has an interior in very good condition and with low mileage. RVs are expensive, but you can sometimes get a really good deal if you look around. Good luck!
