Hello to all from Davao city in the Philippines! Davao is know for its Durian (for those of you who haven’t encountered this fruit it smells of rotten flesh!) my taxi driver back from the office described it perfectly ‘it tastes like heaven, but smells like hell!’ Maybe I am slowly going native but I actually quite like it now, in a strange way despite tasting like a cross between ripe brie and burnt onions it has a strangely moreish quality like picking a scab.. I have been out in the Philippines for 12 days, but somehow I have the sense that I have been out for months already! I spent a week in Clark near Angeles city which I mentioned in my last post and then flew over to the beautiful isle of Palawan. Overall ... read more

First day at El Nido Kayaking and hiking ( or shall I say rock climbing) I woke up to the sounds of trikes honking horns, dogs barking and roosters cock-a-doodle -do! I took a quick shower and got dressed to schedule tours for the day and he next day. I walked in the Art Caffe and talked to the ladies there and booked a kayaking-snorkeling-island hopping boat combo tour for Sunday. A hiking tour for the afternoon and a kayak for the morning. I walked around the main area where all the bars, restos, hostels, guesthouses and shops are and I bought a few small souvenirs. Then I wandered around the outside streets and walked into El Nido town. El Nido is in central Palawan it is a bay called Bacuit ( not sure spelling) it ... read more
