Why Travel?

At one point in your life you will feel exhausted, bored and tired of your routinary life. When that day comes, just step out of your comfort box, move away from your usual self and see your life from different perspectives. Travel! Head out to the endless horizon and discover the world, go places and meet new faces, explore to understand new cultures, get lost to find yourself. In the end you will realize that traveling is not only about learning new cultures or meeting new friends or discovering new places, it also lets us discover our own culture, our limits, ourselves. It is a personal journey to self-discovery, because after all, it is only from the outside that we can look back in.

  1. Sir,Good day!
    I would like to ask permission if I could use your pictures and
    details about Malapascua. It’s for my academic purposes.

    Hope it’s just okay for you. Thank you.

  2. Hi, I live in the beautiful area of Linapacan, Philippines, half way between El Nido and Coron:
    It is totally off the beaten path and the waters are crystal clear with fantastic snorkeling and lots to do:
    There are 52 mostly deserted islands in the area, and I am developing a kitesurfing nature camp on one of them:
    latest pics here:
    I also organize private boat tours between El Nido and Coron:

    Would you be interested in a guest post on your site regarding my activities here or about this beautiful part of the world? I’d like to help put it on the travel map, while getting involved with the locals to help steer its development in a tasteful and non-destructive way.
    Also, I can offer a commission, such as 5,000p, for each boat tour gained through your website.

    Thank you, Karel
