  • Tarsiers, Spiders And Sea Turtles The Perks Of Island Life

    From North Luzon we travelled back to Manila, where we stayed again at the hostel with the rooftop lounge. After a cab ride, a flight, another cab ride, a bus ride and a ferry ride, we finally made it to Malapascua Island, just north of Cebu in the evening the next day.

Having to constantly live on a budget restricts me from covering as much ground as possible, travel-wise, so when another Cebu Pacific Seat Sale came around, I immediately hit "Sear ...

  • Budget Guide To A Romantic Stay In Bohol Panglao Philippines

    The Philippines had been on our must see list for some time. Every traveler who visits this country sings its praises. On a last minute whim, we added it to our second tour of Asia. We knew if we didn't visit it this time around, we would have regretted it. Researching The Philippines can be slightly overwhelming. There are so many special, unique islands to visit within the country and traveling between them can be costly, unreliable (i.e., cancelled ferry boats), and uncomfortable. However, with a lot of research crammed into a short amount of time, we developed a great couple's guide to Boh ...
