How women prepare for emigration

How women prepare for emigration

The first thoughts that come up in a womans head when she is thinking about moving to another country are How about family? What can go wrong? Men and women differ in preparing for moving abroad, where women have 1000 questions, men just seem to go and solve issues along the way. Yet many men end up stranded, without money and disillusioned in their (maybe hasty?) decision. Men and women both dream and make plans, but the actual emigration is…

Puerto Galera has many sides to it. Beautiful nature, nice beaches, and a buzzing nightlife. And it is one of the Philippines hotspots for sex-tourism for both gay and straight.

Puerto Galera, Mindoro, town centre

Returning two years later to Puerto Galera I do notice some major improvements to the town centre and the shopping area in Puerto Galera.

Three mistakes I made on Social Media

Three mistakes I made on Social Media

I blog since blogging was invented. I was one of the first, and for over 15 years I’ve been blogging almost every day. There were moments in my life that every occasion was observed on blogability. In those days blogging was fun. You opened one at one of the so many platforms and instantly you had an audience, since there were not many of us. We had fun sharing, working, linking and helping each other. We followed our hearts and…

All you need to know about Travel Burnout?

Some people dream of the life I live. Travel forever and ever, crossing the horizon as my greatest challenge and endless summer. Ehm….lets rewind that…….. Endless summer? At the moment here it is rain season and heavy rains bother my view, my trip and my beach life, falling coconuts everywhere and floods and landslides. Crossing the horizon as my greatest challenge? Gosh, how about dark lonely nights, facing huge spiders all by myself and kill giant roaches? And what about…
