Renting an apartment in Puerto Galera, Philippines

After the first stage of the journey through the Philippines I arrived in Puerto Galera again. It was two years ago since I first came here.

Welcome to my new home

Welcome to my new home

So I got myself this nice place to live, and I love showing it to you. It makes me very happy to walk around in the garden and watch nature. It is just far enough from Dumaguete City to live a reasonably free from the noise pollution.
