Philippines here I come!

A travel blog entry by teacherbill


After a 14 hour flight and a few hour delay we finally arrived in the capital of the Philippines, Manila. The Philippines are 15 hours ahead of the US, so we left on a Friday and got there early Sunday morning.

When I stepped outside it felt like I walked into a sauna that someone forgot to turn off. The humidity and the heat made ...

Philippines- Discovering one's heritage

We spent the evening doing the ...

... off my meal with a nice ice cream and a ice cold drink.

Back at the hostel we enjoyed the afternoon sun by the pool with a couple of beers. We both started to feel really tired and decided to have a couple of hours nap in our dorms. Mine was a two hour nap, but Mikes was more like five hours.

I met a nice girl called Amelia on the sofa who again was leaving in a couple of days. She was telling me all about her travels around South East Asia and Sri ...
