We are ready for our car trip around Palau!!! But still deep down in our feelings we were afraid about the strange insurance text for the rental, what if …..
We paid already so we have to go trough it. Yeah I know first world problems. The more you have the more you can lose. Nevermind lets roll. Inside the mustang first thing was to check the stereo and set up the playlist. Did that, done that, ready to rumble.
After trying out all gimmicks in the Mustang, of course even the roof has to be opened, a must! We were ready.
First we went to the south south south part but sadly there was nothing special. One thing I have to mention.
At this place there was a really really old building like a ruin.
Nice location for a good hostel/hotel maybe one day I have enough money for investing ;).
GPS re-checked, location and destination localized. Next destination was west coast (is the best coast).We drove a while and enjoyed the weather with good music. Until we reached the coast in the north west.
There we have seen a funny small island in the shape of an elephant.
Back in the car we headed to the waterfall in the north.
We got there, and it was a short hike down into the falls after we paid the entry fee of about 10$. It was so beautiful. You could also have the chance to zipline down the hill. Unfortunately there was nobody who did that.
We continued the hike down, and the way down was not really prepared for flip flop tourists but we did it and survived. A bunch of people kept slipping and sliding on the rocks down into the falls, so pelase watch out. Once we did make it (across a scary bridge!) it was amazing. My mind was so blown. There were rocks to sit on underneath the water and we just hung out (of course, had a photo shoot), and got to lie in the sun. Let the pictures speak for themselves.
One the way up, back to the entry we had also a swim in the different pools which were created by the nature, was also amazing!!!
So far I did not tell anything about the funny jungle monorail, from the engineering point of you it was technically simple and just awesome. Raw mechanic a really though device.
The whole hike and the different place in that area was astonishing. A must visit on Palau!!!
Next destination was a small war canoe from old ages but unfortunately not that spectacular…. Right know during writing this blog I found out that instead the war canoe we could have visited the lighthouse in the north with an amazing sight but yeah it is how it is.
After the canoe, we drove whats called the Ring Road on the way to the Palauan capitol. It was beautiful! They views of the tropical jungles and ocean were so amazing. The capitol was incredible, too.
The palace, how we called it, looked like Versailles.
After that location we drove to a friend of us, where we had to deliver some goods from Switzerland. Chocolate, Elmex, gummi bears and even more good stuff. At this point I want to thank J & C for the nice hospitality and the good banana milk shake and last but not least the organization of our next day on PELILU!!!
For dinner, Math persuaded me to try an Indian dish.
I forgot the name of the whole dish, but also Nam was included, ohhh that was sooo delicious. Thanks Math for the idea!!! Also that night we met our friend of our diving trip from fish n fins. This professional dive photographer had some amazing equipment and he also told us some breath-taking stories. AWESOME company. Big greetings to Hawaii!
At this point I am asking myself which new types of fish, flora and fauna he could add to his photo collection. I think I have to ask him!!!
After the dinner we enjoyed a small party at our hotel, with DJ M with his Oboem loudspeakers. Invited was a Korean girl, a Philippine guy (Mr.. T) and we both. Oh we had a crash!!!
