Chasing Waterfalls. Again.

Siquijor very nearly didn't happen for us. On account of parts of Mindanao currently being a war zone the foreign travel advice map wasn't looking good for travel to several Filipino islands. Large parts of the south are swathed in "don't even fucking think about going there" red, and many surrounding areas, including Siquijor, are [...]

Hungover Canyoneering

Yesterday was Tarrant's birthday and we decided to rent another scooter and head up to Osmeña Peak, the highest point in Cebu, because nothing says "happy birthday, baby, I love you" like hiking up a massive fucking hill. Never let it be said that I don't know how to treat a woman. A couple of [...]

Exploring North Bali

For what is essentially a relatively small chunk of rock sticking out above sea level Bali has a lot of shit going on for it, predominantly in the form of Hindu temples. Everywhere you look there's a temple. Strolling through a forest? There'll be a temple. In a homestay? There'll be a temple. If there's [...]

Chasing Waterfalls

I mean, we asked and paid Rp50,000 per day for it. We didn't just nick off with [...]

Sunsets & Waterfalls & Shiny Little Plankton

Things To Do In Bundi

There are many things to do in Bundi but most of them I didn't get around to doing on account of ending up with my head in a bucket throwing up whatever my various internal organs could produce. I'm not even shitting you, it's like my body was on a mission to expel everything I'd [...]

Water Everywhere… Maybe Don’t Drink It Though

Friday 10th October Ahh, there's nothing like a nice, long walk in the searing heat ay. Especially when you're not exactly renowned for your sense of direction since that time you had to ask for directions out of a Marks & Spencers store because you'd just spent the last 10 minutes wandering around in circles [...]
