Manila Street

An overview of A. Bonifacio St. in Manila's Makati neighborhood.

Skyscrapers over Makati

Makati is a fast growing part of Manila, and is considered to be the commercial hub of the metro area.


A beautiful street next to the Pasig River. What you can't tell is how hot it was.

"Make It Happen. Make it Makati"

Makati is the section of Metro Manila where I stayed. I saw this and thought it reflected my thoughts for starting this trip!

Courtyard at Greenbelt Mall

Filipino's love their malls. They are also very religious. So there is a church in the middle of the courtyard at the Greenbelt Mall.

"Give me a break"

Found the Kit-Kat Bar Bench, so I took a break. Unfortunately, I couldn't eat it.

Awesome View

This is the view from my hotel in Puerto Princesa.

Meet Toby

I met Toby on my first night in Puerto Princesa at a vegetarian restaurant. He arrived just a few minutes after I did, we started talking, and bam, we're now friends!

The Bay Around Puerto Princesa

Downtown Puerto Princesa

Puerto Princesa is a fairly quiet city compared to Manila, but parts of the city feel congested.


Came across these sheep in Puerto Princesa.

Palawan Capitol Building

My first tuk tuk ride

This is the main type of transportation around Puerto Princesa, and they're pretty cheap to use.

New Friends

One of the great things about traveling is meeting other travelers and making new friends from around the world!

Ulugan Bay

We stopped here on our way to the Underground River Tour.

Ulugan Bay

The waters appear so calm. The view gave me complete happiness.

I survived!

This was part of the "up sell" I described in my blog about the Underground River Tour. This was after some cave exploring and climbing.

Ugong Rock

The view from above the caves.

Superman Ziplining

Ziplining is always fun. But if you've never done it like Superman, you haven't lived yet.

Rice Terraces

This was the view from the ziplines.

Boats in Sabang

Wild Monkeys!
