The small tribal town of Dulan has morphed into a haven for surfing, art, cultural exchange, hipsters, and of course, WorkAway.
Malta is an amazing country and was it not for a wedding, I could have easily gone my entire life without setting foot on its islands. Dividing vacation time between Manila and Malta almost seems like a mistake: a typo when booking, perhaps. One is a metropolitan city on a tropical island in South-East Asia… Continue reading Three Days in Malta
An Interview with my First Host Couchsurfing. Sure, I’ve heard the word before and known such a thing existed, but it wasn’t until about a month ago that I took a serious look at it. Although I no longer have a permanent home in the Philippines, I have been returning to the islands frequently and… Continue reading Things to Know About Couchsurfing

First, there's the laundry problem. La Trinidad has no water so this is a serious mission. We… Continue reading Baguio’s Parks, Playgrounds, and Places to Eat

Start your day with an Uber… Continue reading Day & Night in BF Homes
