Paradise on Earth

Sunshine, blue sky, crystal clear water...

Coron is really a paradise on Earth! I spent 3 weeks in The Philippines, and Coron was one of the most beautiful spots of all.

Coron is a tiny little island in South-East Asia. It is much smaller than Tolna County.

Coron: 689 km2

Tolna County: 3,703 km2

There is so much to tell about that fantastic trip to Coron but now I would like to tell you about my very last day...

"The early bird catches the worm"

A lovely friend of mine and I wanted to climb Mount Tapyas to see the sunrise. That was our program for the morning.

11:00 PM: we went to bed and slept 4,5 hours 3:30 AM: we got up

4:00 AM: our typical local taxi arrived and took us to the hill

4:15 AM: we started to climb the hill

4:45 AM: we reached the top. We were exhausted because there were 720 concrete steps that led to the top. Mount Tapyas is 210 m high. It was a bad idea to wear flip-flops, right? :D

It was chilly, around +19 °C. We had some time to wait, then finally, shortly after 5 AM the sun rose. What a marvelous view it was! We took a lot of photos and enjoyed the amazing scenery.

Very soon the sun became so strong that I couldn't even keep my eyes open. Next time I should wear sunglasses, even if I leave at 4:00 AM.

We walked down the hill (again, it was a bad idea to wear flip-flops...), and walked back to the hostel on foot. It was just 9:30 AM and the temperature rose to 30 °C. The heat is crazy in tropical countries.

In the hostel we had breakfast, then made our way to the airport, and said goodbye to this beautiful island.

The End

Glossary: island (!) – sziget county - megye "the early bird catches the worm" - közmondás. "ki korán kel, aranyat lel" exhausted - kimerült scenery - látvány, táj even if... - még akkor is ha...

Kiejtés! Tudod hogy kell helyesen kiejteni, hogy "island"? Hallgasd meg --> itt<-- a hangszóróra kattintva.
