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…

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.

Driving a motorcycle int he Philippines is madness. White men keep telling me that over and over again. And I know that the day I hit the pavement they will all say: Told you so!

So, here I am, I got my driver’s license in the Philippines, I learned to…

Driving way outside my Comfort zone

Driving way outside my Comfort zone

Some days riding a motorcycle in the Philippines is more a trial than others. When driving in the rain season for example. I have to face my fears and go outside my comfort zone a lot. Specially on this trip. The rain had been battering on me for hours and I was soaked to the bone, cold and tired. Sometimes one puddle is just one puddle to much to cross.
