March 26 2020 – We are stranded in the Philippines during the CoronaVirus Quarantine. It’s day 9 and we are starting to worry now. We still feel like we are in the safest place possible, but the enormity of this Covid-19 Crisis is going to have a serious impact everywhere. That is without a doubt.
We are aware now that food supplies from the mainland and other islands are restricted or simply unavailable. And while this isn’t a major problem because there seems to be an abundance of supplies still, it is cause for concern if we are not ready to adapt soon. Once the staples that we rely on are gone we will need to get creative with our food and necessities. We are preparing our minds for that.
Today was our first experience of driving into General Luna, Siargao’s main town, since the mandaory lockdown kicked in. We had to use our home quarantine passes to get in, and we did all our shopping before heading back on the main road which was almost completely deserted.
It’s all very surreal.
For now we are going to upload a daily video diary of the Siargao Island Lockdown scenario. This is day 9. Our regular family travel vlogs will resume publishing later.
Watch the Siargao Island Lockdown Playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list…
We will be updating it day by day.
