“The concept of One Minute Videos is simple: I prefer people to make up their own mind about the Philippines, so I take RAW video, no editing no comments, this is how daily life on the islands is.

Conquistador: Fighting Windmills

Conquistador: Fighting Windmills

While listening to my ‘bass-playlist’ over and over again to block the German news voice from my next door neighbour, I write you this note, wondering why on earth people watch the news, at 6.30 on the front porch without a headphone. I guess he has to put up now with Juno Reactor, sorry man I just love their “Master of the Universe” number and I have every version of it, even the Basement remix…..eat your heart out with your…

Driving Quezon Zigzag road

Driving Quezon Zigzag road

The old zigzag road in the Quezon/Bicol area also known as Bitukan Manok was some adventure on my last trip. On my way to Naga City I decided to sleep over in Atimonan, because of the bad weather, I passed this road because it is shorter than the newer road. I would not have missed it although it was a challenge. Steep climbs and narrow curves and a long slippery descent. You go through the chickens intestines I believe the…

Eating a Big Mak in the Philippines

Eating a Big Mak in the Philippines

This lady had been up and running since 8 on December 26, being the only one open in town where you can buy food.

Riding mud roads and flooded streets

Riding mud roads and flooded streets

I collect a lot of footage. With the GoPro on the bike every ride,  it adds up. And now with the Sony action cam on the back of my sons motorbike, it becomes a massive amount of gigabytes. This time I made a compilation of driving around after storms and heavy rain, like tropical depression Urduja (Kai-Tak) and the cold front surrounding upcoming storm Vinta. It is amazing how the attitude of Filipinos is when it comes to flooded houses…

Visiting Unitop and Jolibee

In the following video I show you the large Unitop in Calapan city and a visit to the next door Jolibee. But there is more! Watch me ride my motorbike. We mounted the Sony action cam to the back of my sons motorcycle and took some ‘backward video footage’. Since I’m usually the one to follow, there was footage of me driving as well. Watch what happens and enjoy the Christmas and endless T-shirt parade at Unitop! Did you know…

Just another week in Paradise called the Philippines

Just another week in Paradise called the Philippines

There is a Vlog online on the Leaving Holland Youtube Channel, with an overview of my week. At the moment I spent time with my son, we are planning a trip up to the north, and staying in Puerto Galera, Mindoro Island for Christmas. Waiting for some gear to arrive for the next trip. Watch what we are up to in an average week, where to eat, what to do and how does the beach look on a rainy day….
