Last week we went on a road trip to the south side of the island.
Packed with some clothes, my laptop and some stuff. We filled our coca cola bottles with fuel and off we went.
5 hours driving each way and still enjoying it!
We spent the night in a silly lodge near Roxas on Mindoro and went back the next day.
After Typhoon Nina rampaged through the area a massive tree blocks the road while emergency services are trying to get through.
Right after Typhoon Nina swept over the Puerto Galera area we went for a drive to White Beach and Talipanan.
It’s a damn mess – And it will be for the foreseeable future.
You now, go on a boat ride, fall of a banana boat, drink a coconut.
At around 5:30pm people run out to the beach in the hundreds, if not thousands, to capture the sunset. Which looks something like this.
Which may take a while to get without other people in your way.
I’ve left Dumaguete a while ago, back to do some travelling and enjoying the Philippines.
Me and my girlfriend continue to Puerto Galera. This is kinda my backyard for the foreseeable time.
See where we end up and what’s in store for us for the near and long term future 🙂

If you know what’s going on and how to recognise (potential) bad situations you’re a lot safer already.

Lit streets, like the one below, are intense enough. But a pitch black street is a whole different adventure.

Time to bring some order in the flurry of expenses. Turns out that the uncool truth about a lot of things is that everything costs money. And if you’re like me where you don’t really care for money, you still need to recognise the usefulness of money.
So I care for money, but at the same time I don’t. That reads like a oxymoron but interpret that in the sense that I recognise the need for money and that I need enough of it so that I can live my life.
If you can ignore the traffic noise and smell of sewage during low tide it’s actually quite a nice place.
A back-alley kind of way from my house to the main road.
