Confusion, Volcanos and Karaoke: Just another day in Tagatay, Philippines.

Me: “Bus to Tagatay?” Random Filippino: “Taggaayy?” Me: “ummm, yeah tagatay…” Random Filippino: “yeah. teegataat. Bus is two blocks north” We had that exact conversation with various people about 5 times before we figure out that there are about 1000 different T named small cities nearby. We walked north, south, up, down. Asking every few […]

Yo soy El Nido. For those of you who don’t habla espanol, El Nido is Spanish for: The Nido

You’re not getting tired of Philippines post yet?? Thank god, cause we still have two more coming! El Nido.¬†The one downside to El Nido is the hellish bus ride. You can take a minivan from Puerto Princesa¬†which is a 5 hour cramped ride bumping and bobbing through the jungle. Or you can take 6-7 hour […]

Dumegette – To the nights we barely remember, with the people we can’t forget

A seemingly long tuk tuk ride took us to “Harolds Mansions” and we checked in. I’ll just say they have a loose definition of “Mansion”, but for the price it was alright. We went for a room with A/C, which was a nice break from sweat soaked sheets and waking up to Brittany’s whimpering screams […]

Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines: Three P’s of perfection.

Palawan= beautiful. Getting into/out of Palawan= pain in the @ss. Seriously. We took off for Puerto Princesa from Cebu City, expecting a quick 2 hour flight. However as we went in for landing I was looking out the window and thinking about the amount of fog and how it was impossible to see two feet […]

Bohol: our ghetto motorbike tour

After we finally escaped Siquijor, we headed out on a quick 2.5 hour ferry ride. Now at this point I can tell you, me and Sean are PROS at long term travel. You put us on a 12 hour bus and we can zone out in no time making a full day of uncomfortable travel […]

Isla del fuego, Siquijor.

Isla del fuego as the Spanish called it is known for two things, the beauty (including the eerie glow of the island due to the fireflies- from where it gets its name) and its deep seeded roots in witchcraft. The legend on the island is that Siquijor rose from the sea during a great storm […]

Mental Masturbation

There used to be a sketch on the comedy show, mad tv, called lowered expectations. The premise of the sketch was that there was a dating service for less than eligible bachelors an bachelorettes. Inevitably, each video tape of a potential dater would include some giant character or physical flaw, which has led them to […]

Whale sharks and lady boys… A birthday celebration.

Only one thing was standing in our way to the Philippines, a hellacious night in the Singaporean airport. One thing i will not miss is nights sleeping on the floor with cops waking you up to make sure your not a squatter… its an experience you only need once i think. We arrived at 9am […]
