August a month of chances

August a month of chances

Since I’m single and free to travel again, the world is mine to explore. So lets plan some trips and move to another house, away from the memories of my broken relationship. I found myself a place near the sea again. So today I leave the mountains and the minty green cottage to move away from all the memories of a broken relationship. Packing and sorting through all the items I bought to start a new life was harsh. It…

Kagusuan Beach Siquijor, Philippines

Kagusuan Beach Siquijor, Philippines

I’ve been driving my Yamaha SZ150 for quite a while now, and with great pleasure. Although Filipino men have an opinion about it: A clutch motorbike is no good for a woman. I have to hear that over and over again. I just laugh when they mention I should have bought a scooter or a semi automatic. For a while now I was complaining about a wobbly feeling in the rear tire. Sometimes, not consistently, but it felt the motorbike…

Since the experience of safety is a personal one, I can only speak for myself. Please do take note that whether it is a real threat, a political game or just a hoax to scare off people: whenever a government gives a travel advice you are…
