It's my first time to make a land trip to Cebu from Masbate. Usually, I take a flight or aboard a passenger resselwhen going to Cebu, but this time I try land travel.

Stranded!.....Still the schedule trips of fastcraft from Pilar to Masbate is unstable. I am supposed to be in Masbate at around 2 pm but unfortunately, 12 noon schedule was cancelled. So I have no choice but to wait for the next trip at 4 pm. Irregular trip schedule started since February this year, when one of the seacrafts of Montenegro Shiping lines has gone into a repair. Beside messy and out-of-time working schedules, Stress is one of the effects of being stranded. Imagine waiting in an non-conducive , not comfortable area of the port for 5 hours...This experience gave me a lesson, next time confirm first before traveling. Now, I have a contact person here in Pilar to verify schedules if in case I should pass this port again.
