Ok, you're probably not surprised to see more photos from Haeundae but it's where I have been hanging out in the past weeks although my time here is coming to an end.

Day 339 - Some More from Haeundae

Another day of chilling a bit around Haeundae, it saves some money and is actually quite nice to hang out around here.

Day 338 - A Rather Quiet Day

It was a rather quiet day photographically speaking but busy day in terms of sorting my next travel plans out.

Day 336 - Busan Cinema Center

After enjoying the movie at the Busan Cinema Center last night, I felt like it would be ab good idea to take some more photos of the architecture.

Day 335 - Gamcheon Culture Village

I planned to go to the Gamcheon Culture Village for a few days now but things always kind of came up so I kept pushing it back.

Day 334 - Surfing

If you would have told me that I will end up not only at the beach but also surfing I would not have believed it but here I was, surfing again with my friend.

Day 333 - Between Steel and Glass

Today, I went to take some photos around the modern and new skyscrapers near Haeundae. I did take photos here before but wanted to use the 21mm lens this time for some architecture photos.

Day 332 - People around Haeundae

I spent most of today in a coffee shop fixing some issues with my Surface since it started acting up a lot.

I spent the morning walking around Haeundae by the beach but then decided to go hiking on Jangsan mountain.

Day 329 - A Day by the River

It was a hot and sunny day but instead of going to the beach, I went to Baenaegol, a nice place in the mountains near Busan.

Day 328 - Sea Clouds

It started off as as sunny day before the fog moved in but this created some really cool and dramatic scenes. Guess this is the nice thing about living by the beach, the weather keeps changing all the time.

Day 327 - Raining in Haeundae

Despite a dry morning, the rain returned and it was mixed for most of the day. This didn't matter too much since I decided to go surfing to Songjeong beach with a friend.

Last time in Busan, I really enjoyed my walk around the Jagalchi fish market so this time it was the first on my list.

Day 324 - Vigan to Laoag to Manila to Busan

I had an early start to the day to watch the final World Cup football game and then go for a quick walk around Vigan before taking the bus to Laoag.

Day 322 - Arriving in Vigan

When I took the night bus, I bought a ticket all the way to Laoag, forgetting how uncomfortable night buses are. So when the bus drove into Vigan in the morning, I had enough and decided to just get off here.

Day 321 - To the Underground River

After getting my permit yesterday, I went to rent a motorbike for the drive to the Underground River about 75km from Puerto Princesa.

Day 320 - Puerto Princesa

After almost missing my flight because I forgot to set my alarm, I made it to Puerto Princesa. Since I didn't plan anything, I decided to start with booking a hotel.

Day 319 - Tarsiers in Bohol and Evening in Cebu

Initially, I planed on leaving Bohol at around lunchtime to have some more time in Cebu but then figured I can't leave without going to see a Tarsier.

Day 318 - Of Beaches and a Cave on Bohol

The plan today was to drive around Panglao Island and take in some of the other sights but then I realized there are not that many sights on Panglao except for one, the Hinagdanan Cave.

Day 316 - Halfday in Cebu

After a first good impression last evening I was curious to see how Cebu would fare during the day. It felt a lot quieter and less crowded than Manila but also a lot more pleasant and less dirty.

Day 315 - Last Day in Manila

I guess a bit of sunshine, or just the fact that I got used to the place, can make a difference as Manila didn't seem quite as run down today.

Friday, 4 July 2014

Day 314 - More from Manila

After yesterday, I wanted to give Manila another try and see if I just got the wrong first impression.

Thursday, 3 July 2014

Day 313 - Manila Slums

After a long but not too uncomfortable night at Singapore airport I arrived in Manila. Getting out of the airport and finding a Jeepney (the local transport minibuses) was easy and so far so good.

Day 312 - A Day in Jakarta

When I woke up in the morning I was not sure how long I'll be in Jakarta so just to be sure, I checked out of my hotel and went out for a walk.

Day 311 - Jakarta Evening

After a long train journey, which in hindsight would have been better to fly instead, I arrived in Jakarta and had to wait ages for the commuter train to get to my hotel.
