itinerary: a quick getaway to coron, palawan

for a moment, i was tempted to have "coron in a blink" as this post's title. to give you an idea on how this seems to be the case, here is my itinerary when i did a very quick visit to coron last december. because i'm too honest, i confess that i never plotted any itinerary but i only did a draft list in my mind. i hope i don't disappoint you. but truth be told, sometimes the world perfectly works that way. :P

AirPhil Express plane from Manila to Coron
Does this view make you super excited like it did to me?
