That particular trip was some time ago. My buddy was in the Peace Corps and he said "you gotta see this". But I like Asia. I went twice last year.
I'm considering another trip to the Phills. I've been working on several big Pacific wreck trips but there's a huge overhead in flight time. Thinking of doing this as a tune-up. Like you said, it's only about 14 hours.
I posted this on SP on Bryans Great Battleships thread.
I wouldn't mind taking a bike to Batad, You've ever been? Near Banaue?
