The Rider in the Blue Box

Posted on by Aaron in Aaron's Blog | 2 Comments

The road from Puerto Princesa to El Nido on Palawan is a long one, taking about 6 hours, half of which is on an unpaved road.  Given the length of the trip and wanting to be able to spend time in El Nido when we arrived, we got on the early morning shuttle, which left at 5:00 am.  So blurry-eyed and weary, we scrunched into our seats in the minibus, popped in our headphones, and started barrelling down the road. …

Photo of the Week: El Nido Bay

The bay of El Nido is a beautiful place.  The beach, tucked into the mountains, stretches on with its gorgeous wihite sand as with plays with the clear, blue water.  It is a place that looks like it’s cut straight from the pages of every travel magazine you’ve ever seen.  The area is, as of this moment, the place with the best beach and ocean that we have been to.  Nothing tops watching the sun set behind the mountains while …

I will admit it, I have a secret crush on Katy Perry.  Though I tend to dislike the pop music that’s made today because it’s usually so formulaic and derivative, there’s something that remains interesting and genuine about her music, with each song seeming to have a truly heartfelt meaning to it.  Some are silly, some are serious, some are filled with love, and the variety is most welcome.  Nao also shares this KP love, and so when we found …

Photo of the Week: 7 Commandos Beach

7 Commandos Beach is one of the spots that tourists hit up as part of Tour A from El Nido.  On our tour, it was the place that we spend the longest just hanging out at the beach.  It was the end of the day and the fact that the beach had a small shop with beer on offer meant that it was the perfect stop to just sit and relax.  There’s nothing quite like drinking cold beer while swimming …
