An account of unexpected situations that I’ve encountered on my travels — this is a story how I got scammed on the streets of Manila, and how I managed to weasel myself out of it.
Video: A short clip of my visit to the beautiful island of Bohol in the Philippines, shot with my GoPro3.
This mist-shrouded town is blessed with cool and refreshing mountain air, gorgeous scenery and friendly people– the quiet and serene atmosphere here will give you a glimpse into life way back when. However, I made the journey specifically to see the ‘hanging coffins’.
Banaue is famous for the 2,000 year old rice terraces carved into its mountains. It’s an arduous trip to get there, but I’ve heard so much about the magnificence of the rice terraces that I had to witness it for myself.
Taal Volcano is an active volcano, said to be one of the smallest in the world. It is an interesting natural wonder– a volcano within a lake within a volcano within a lake. Hearing about this, I just had to make the journey!
Eventhough Bohol it is one of the country’s most popular islands to visit, it is still almost untouched by commercialization and still relatively unknown to the rest of the world. There are natural wonders to see, wildlife to visit and beautiful beaches to soak up the sun.
The Bohol Beach Club is blessed with gorgeous views of the sea with two distinct hues of blue, and white powdery sand. It is the perfect resort for honeymooning couples, or to get away for some alone time.
On my recent trip to Manila, I made it a point to try their local dishes and delicacies, and I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them. This is one country that really knows how to value and appreciate their food… nothing goes to waste.
