The Great Escape

Rediscovering life in Palawan Philippines

Weekly Photo Challenge: CLOSE

You’re probably wondering why I have a picture of a van for this week’s Photo Challenge.

“The Chef” and I were travelling to Puerto Princesa from El Nido in Palawan and had booked an Express Van for the 5 hour journey. There were already a few people waiting at the bus depot when we got there.  Tricycles and motorcycles slowly pulled up and unloaded their passengers. More and more people arrived. Soon it became quite apparent that the van would be our equivalent to a sardine can on wheels. When you’re crammed inside a van with 16 other people you know the meaning of the word CLOSE!

  3. Cut-rate seating folks but be warnes; the last four passengers on board will be the first to push the bus if needed!

  4. LOL! Getting out you must have felt like all the clwns pouring out of a VW beetle at the circus! 😉

  5. A bit too close for my liking 🙂 Some of our public buses are packed to overflowing and I never fail to thank my stars that I don’t need to use them! Wonderful entry.

  6. Are you serious? 16 people in one van? Can you all breath?

  7. Wow! It’s awesome to go an a trip. And about the sardines thing hahahahah

  10. I like “the van would be our equivalent to a sardine can on wheels. When you’re crammed inside a van with 16 other people you know the meaning of the word CLOSE!”
