Legend has it that Siquijor (pronounced See Key Whore) is full of mystics, shamans, voo doo, and healers. Superstition keeps many Filipinos from visiting the sleepy island. We spent 6 days there and had to experience some sort of healing treatment ourselves.
We did a three day and two night island expedition with Buhay Isla to travel between Coron and El Nido. What would normally take about six hours on a ferry, we stretched out over three sun drenched, unplugged, well-fed, adventurous days. What a beautiful way to travel from one place to another.
The tall, dirty-blonde European guy with a tusk for a nose took his seat behind me. Within seconds I was gagging on his putrid foot odor.
