Where I stayed
Vertua Residences, Lahug
I left Lahug after spending the morning loading the bike, and started on my journey through Cebu, south towards satandar. It didnt start well. Firstly the weather, while the rain her is warm and pleasant, it makes riding an overloaed bike even more hair raising, add to this lorrys and taxis that spill oil and crap out onto the road making it slippery, but hey i must of survived i am writing this..!!
I made it as far as Talisay before the load slipped and i had to ride into a shell service station. With all the sheel people watching on, no one helped, the bike was too heavy to stand on its own with the weight in such a position, so i had to lean the weight of the load against a wall while i retied all the ropes...I found that the weight in the main bag had moved, causing everything to move sideways
When i reached the ferry terminal it was the usual filipino, paperwork for paperwork sake.....first purchase the ticket then, fill out the manifest....but 149php it was good value. The bike would not go onto the main stand with out much help from a deck hand who just laughed at me......Finally i got to Harolds Mansion, checked inn, even though they didnt know i was coming......I unloaded the bike and of course my room is on the third floor...and then took a well earned shower, some food in the hotel and of course BEEERRRR......
