Driving from Mamburao to Sablayan – Part 3 of 3

And the final part of us driving to Sablayan from Mamburao. This is part 3, where we arrive in Sablayan.

There isn’t much to the town or village. It’s a small town without much of a city centre. So ultimately we decided to not stay here and continue on to San Jose directly hopefully find some kind of hotel of lodge along the way.

The whole drive took about 2 hours, with some great views and surprises along the way.

The map never lies…

Earlier today we decided to explore a bit in the San Teodoro area. Driving up random sideroads and see what’s at the end.

While searching for a restaurant (which looked like crap) we decided to take a shortcut back to the main highway.

The map indicated there was a road. Luckily my Honda is a Dual-Sport with off-road tires, because the “road” was a rocky path often not much wider than my tires.

Driving from Mamburao to Sablayan – Part 1 of 3

Earlier this month we made a roadtrip around the Island of Mindoro, taking a boat to Abra de Ilog and then driving back to Puerto Galera going via San Jose and Mansalay.

Endless rice and corn drying on the road. Which sometimes is annoying because it takes up most of the road space. We came across some roadworks and overall had a good time driving.

I filmed a part of the route with the GoPro while driving from Mamburao to Sablayan.

A drive from Puerto Galera to Calapan City

Me and my girlfriend regularly drive to Calapan City from Puerto Galera for some shopping, a movie or simply to eat fried chicken.

Calapan City is about 55km away from Puerto Galera, taking about 80 minutes usually to drive on our motorbikes following a twisty road along the coast and up the mountains.
