Oslob · Whale shark watching

I came across Christan Leblanc’s Youtube channel when I was doing some travel research in December. He was traveling around in Asia for a few months and also in the Philippines. His daily vlogs were really helpful for my journey, also the one from the whale sharks in Oslob. Whale sharks are the biggest sharks and fish in the ocean, but don’t worry, they only eat plankton 🙂

Siquijor Island

I think this island has much more to offer than I’ve actually seen on my daytrip. I only had a few hours to visit the main “sights” on Siquijor Island, but it was enough to convince me that this island is a little paradise. Amongst Filipinos, Siquijor Island is known as a mystic island, that is sometimes also referred to as “Witch Island”. Before I went there, I had heard that there were healers and people who practice voodoo. So, I didn’t exactly know what to expect of the island and its inhabitants.

Kalanggaman Island

Good morning everybody!

It’s time for another blog post and this one will be about the beautiful island – one of my favorite destinations on the Philippines – Kalanggaman Island. I did an island tour to Kalanggaman Island in the beginning of Febuary. Since then, I can’t get this amazing place out of my head. White sand, cristal blue water and palmtrees… everything you need to sit back and relax. Plus, tourism hasn’t reached this place so far. So hurry and visit this island if you’re in the area!

Malapascua Island

Good morning guys!

This beautiful little paradise north of Cebu Island was my first destination on my trip. I stayed there for 4 nights in a small bungalow next to the beach. On Malapascua Island, tourists and inhabitants live side by side. This is the perfect occasion to get to know the people who live there and hear their stories. One of those stories being the typhoon that hit the island in 2013. The island and its people are slowely recovering, but tourism – as their main source of income – is back to normal. Malapascua island doesn’t have any concrete roads and beaches are easily accessible on foot within a few minutes – that’s something special I’ve only seen on Malapascua Island.

Traveling in the Philippines

When I booked my flight to the Philippines in October 2015 it was just because I found a cheap flight without knowing what this beautiful country has to offer. My boyfriend and I then started researching, watching youtube videos and looking for images and places on Instagram – and oh my gosh, I was so looking foward to coming to the Philippines. We had a rough plan about where we wanted to go: first Cebu Island’s surrounding area and then Palawan Island. After two months I found out that – according to Condé Nast Travelerreaders – Palawan Island is the most beautiful island in the world and also Cebu is listed on rank 19. I didn’t have any expactations because I just wanted to flee from the cold and grey weather in Europe, get a nice tan and eat heaps of fruits. And after five months of waiting, the adventure finally began.
