The Cooking School in Chiang Mai Experience

And it is outrageously inexpensive, too! So I thought, what better way to celebrate this spectacular reason than with signing … Read more

The Magic of Menorca

Note: This is a guest post.

The Balearic Islands have long been held as a perfect holiday destination, and it’s not hard to see why. This cluster of islands located just off the Spanish coast serve up a wide range of holiday experiences to suit virtually every taste and preference imaginable. They each have plenty in the way of laid-back resorts for those that like nothing more than kicking back on the sands with a good book. Clubbers and party animals will get their kicks in Ibiza’s lively San Antonio, or in the buzzing resort of Magaluf in Majorca.

Jungles And Mud Karts In Puerto Galera

As I walked along the road, the sun beat down. The jungle canopy stretched overhead; protecting me from the hottest sun rays, but many still landed on my back. I drank a mouthful of cold water. Sweat dripped down my back. A motorcycle sped past, spitting exhaust fumes into the atmosphere as it disappeared around a corner. Where was I?

Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro

Roughly 4 hours from Manila, Puerto Galera is a popular town for weekend getaways. It attracts tourists of all types. The Filipinos congregate around White Beach, a popular nightlife district, while the foreigners tend to set up camp around Sabang. I was staying at a Puerto Galera resort in the middle, approximately 10 minutes motorcycle ride from White Beach and Sabang.
