Where I stayed
Mondsee Land Resort
Put to shore in some crappy port we arranged a driver to get us to Panglao island, it was bloody expensive but we had to get there and away from where we were, so be it. After a 2 hour drive we arrived in Pangalao , Alona Beach where we drove around looking for a place to stay.
We found this really cool place about 10 minutes walk from the beach called Mond See Land. It was owned by an Austrian guy and his Phillippino wife, he died and she continues to run it. I got talking to the lady. She has since met up with her first love and has had a boy now three, she's in her fifties, bit of a surprise for her.
We got a great big room with a kitchen and dining area outside two metres from the poolside so we were able to cook for ourselves and the kids
There was a little swiss bakery across the road so we could get good bread and croissants for breakfast, we were made.
I have to admit we did very little once we were settled in here, we were looking for a break from all the traveling and found it here.
The most strenuous thing we did was get a boat to an island for a day trip. Whilst Lisa and Elka chilled on the beach myself and Axel and the boat guys went out fishing. I was sick as a dog, a seasick dog, Axel was sick as a little boy who didn’t catch a fish, I would have preferred his sickness. I couldn’t wait to get back to land, I was green, real green.
Axel is absolutely fish mad, I don’t know where it comes from but all he wants to do is eat, catch, watch, talk about fish, it drives everyone mental.
