The Great Escape: Month 22 Roundup (and where 21 went!) thumbnail

Since I left home for my Great Escape, I’ve been doing monthly roundups of my adventures filled with anecdotes, private little moments, and thoughts that are found nowhere else on this blog. As this site is not just a resource for other travelers but also my own personal travel diary, I like to take some time…

Photo of the Week 105 thumbnail

Lately, my Photo of the Week posts have been just a single photo — a far cry from the many, many options I post when I’m abroad! But frankly that’s because on this visit back to the States I’ve been focused less on fun and travel and more on work and other drudgery. (And let’s just…

Exploring Bohol By Motorbike thumbnail

Time was up. Heather and I had only days left in the Philippines. Being a bit of a lazy traveler myself, I was more than content to beach-bum away our remaining days on Malapascua. I’m also pretty easily influenced, however, and so Heather didn’t have much trouble convincing me to add just one more destination to…

Circumnavigating Eden: A Walk Around Malapascua thumbnail

When it comes to diving-focused destinations like Koh Tao, or the Perhentian Islands, or Malapascua, I get a lot of questions about what there is to do for non scuba fans. Malapascua is still deliciously undeveloped, and so in this particular case, the answer might seem to be, well, not a lot. Unless of course you…
