50 Shades of Blue

A heavy grey sky and torrential rain greet us as our tiny twin-prop plane makes its bumpy descent towards the tarmac of Siargao airport. After more than a day and a half’s travel and 4 separate flights to get to this small tropical island lost on the other side of the world, we’d been hoping for a slightly warmer welcome, and forget all about our ideas of a bit of R’n’R watching the sunset to end a very long day.

With all our bags and boards crammed into a taxi van, we hit the road heading towards the south-east coast of the island. Despite the sheeting rain that never lets up for one second, we spend the whole journey staring out of the windows, filled with curiosity and amazed at the luxurious tropical vegetation and occasional villages we drive through, every one different from every other, our eyes widening with every bend in the road, and all of us eager for more. The motorbikes with their little roofs and 4 or 5 people crammed onto the saddle, the smiling faces, the kindly expressions and openness… every element plunges us fast and deep into exactly the kind of disconnection we needed, one that comes filled with a sense of calm and happiness as we quickly forget how tired we are from the long journey…
