The flight was short but comfortable and before we knew, we were landing at the one-track concrete runway of the El Nido airport, in the middle of the green country side. From the air, you could see some of the beautiful island and sandy beaches already, so it looked promising.
After picking up our luggage from a small cosy and comfortable space, it was waiting for our transportation to arrive. No big automated luggage belts here, but just a few guys that would unload the aircraft, move it to the runway’s adjacent building, check the labels for the correct location and then pass it through a door into the room where a small ribbon was placed from where the passengers could pick up their bag.
The simplicity but effectivity…. I loved it and I realized that it was time to relax and calm down from the busy Dutch office life.
