The Beast That Is Mt Santubong

Mount Santubong is the big, pointy mountain that you can't fucking miss as you ride into Santubong unless you've had your eyes gouged out by an angry macaque because you refused to hand over your crisps. It looks steep. It is steep. I don't know why we thought we were in any manner of physical [...]

Bohol Day 3 – Scary Tree Rats And Fireflies
