I miss this place.....

I was born here in Basey, western Samar, The second biggest island in the Visayas, Philippines. These island is devided into 3 provinces of Eastern, Northern and Western. Samar is surounded with about 180 small islands, one of those is HOMONHON Island where the famous legendary Ferdinand Magellan arrived the first time in Philippine soil on the year 1521.

I was 7 years old when i left these province and move to Manila. Somehow sometimes we visit this place until now. Some of my relatives still lives here...it's quite far from Manila where my parents live right now. This island is accesible by plane, about an hour flight from Manila to Tacloban, then a jeepney bound Basey about 45 minutes to Basey town proper. By bus is long travel, it is not advisable if you doesn't like to sit for long on a bus but concerning your budget, these might help, it is a 24 hours on the road includes some stopover for meals along the way and for passengers who needs lavatory...not onboard but on some restaurant or gasoline station which the drivers choice. the bus will cross towards the island of Visayas and take a ferry boat for an hour and half in Sorsogon to cros to Allen of Northern Samar.
