Puerto Princesa, Palawan: A Return to Love, Adventure, Serenity, and Nostalgia

Love is sweeter the second time around! No, don’t get us wrong. We didn’t fight, break up, and reconciled. Rather, Sheila and I have been in this amazing relationship for two years!

Honda Bay Island Hopping: Experiencing the Splendor of Puerto Princesa’s Seas

In the Philippines, there are two things that define a classic summer: swimming at the beach and island hopping. In Puerto Princesa, you get both!

The Tamilok Challenge

Dark, bleak remnants that remind us of untold suffering and horrible destruction. Remnants that remind us of the costly sacrifice that our warriors suffered to preserve our […]
