We are using Globe Pocket Wifi since we arrived here and the upload speed goes from 1.3 mbps to between 5 or 12 mbps when we connect via a faster server. Hopefully it helps some of you guys stay connected during this lockdown situation.
Waking up to this scenario has been quite alarming. We are all processing it in different ways. The staff here at our resort are shocked but calm and we are doing what we can to help them manage locally. Because only one person from each resort or household can gather supplies, we’ve said they can borrow the tuk tuk to bring back rice and essentials from the village if they need it.
We believe the authorities here have acted swiftly and smartly especially considering there are no doctors on the island. The self quarantine policy is now a mandatory quarantine until further notice.
We all think that staying here and not risking the military transport to Manila is in our best interest. Espcially because we’d be doing it with a 71 year old and a 3 year old in our group.
Please like and share this video if it has been informative. Stay safe out there.
For now we are going to upload a daily video diary of the Siargao Island Lockdown scenario. This is day 4. Our regular family travel vlogs will resume publishing later.

We will be updating it day by day.
