Final week was my motorbike adventure to Bohol and I didn’t rather mention about how I got residence. I woke on my final day in Bohol at three am and drove to Alicia. Right here I met a neighborhood guide and we hiked up Binabaje Hills for sunrise. We then hiked back down and I jumped on my bike with all my gear. I drove to Tubigon port and caught the ferry to Cebu City. I arrived there at three:30 pm and then drove for three hours in the sun all the way back to Moalboal.
It was a fairly challenging day of concentration, dust, sun, and visitors. I fairly significantly unpacked and then repacked prepared for my journey the subsequent morning at six am. I had to wake early to catch the bus from Moalboal to Cebu City to get to the airport to meet Josh and then we flew to Coron. That was a whirlwind 30 hours!
We arrived in Coron and the principal objective of this trip was to knowledge the off the beaten path places of Coron with Massive Dream Boat Man. I’d been in get in touch with with them for a although and lastly, we managed to discover a time that match the schedule. We would be on a private expedition of 10 places more than the course of three days. Every single evening we would commit camping or in a smaller hut/homestay on a diverse island although exploring the islands, sand bars, reefs and shipwrecks in the location.
This trip was above all expectations and reminded me a lot of our boat trip in the San Blas Islands of Panama. Actually, each time we visited a reef it was unbelievable. I didn’t actually anticipate this from Coron as you do not hear significantly about the reefs as it is all about the cliffs and lagoons when you speak about Coron island hopping. I was honestly blown away by the reefs, shipwrecks and water clarity at each single dive web page in Coron on this stop by. A side note: we had been typically the only group or in the enterprise of extremely handful of at most of the spots pictured.
We camped on the 1st evening at South Caye and had some fairly heated basketball games with our guides, Anthony and Krish. Josh and I managed to drain some buckets (push our way to several-try layups) on the way to 1 victory and two losses against superior ballers.
It was the 1st time I was getting a genuine crack with the Mavic two on a trip like this and it seriously smashed it. With the Polarpro filters, the colors that come out of it are insane. These shots are some of my favourite I’ve ever taken and I’m fairly proud of a lot of them. Just about every flight is entertaining and I’m generally understanding the art of aerial angles, which is significantly far more complicated than you could consider. Best-down aerials are basic but acquiring angles that incorporate depth of field from an aerial view is frequently rather a activity. I appreciate the challenge and generally appreciate my no cost helicopter tour of everywhere I stop by.
I will create a complete weblog post about each place we visited on the island hopping with Massive Dream Boat Man shortly but for now, I will post my favourite pictures under.
Right after Massive Dream Boat Man, we headed to Casa Fidelis Resort. This is exactly where I did 1 of my 1st ever collabs way back on 2016. I also sent my parents right here a year ago. It was amazing to catch up with the employees and see how the resort has progressed with a new pool and rooms. Casa Fidelis delivers complete service which includes meals and private island hopping. We did 1 day of island hopping with Casa Fidelis, which focused on no cost-diving at Kayangan Lake and Barracuda Lake. I ended up going on a handful of minute-lengthy dives, which had been certainly about at least 10-meters. We each really feel like we enhanced a lot in just a handful of days of focusing on no cost-diving. I produced a fairly epic video for Sony of the underwater cliffs, which will be released shortly.
Josh and I managed to retain the operating rolling. I clocked a 42km-week, which continues my progression up soon after hamstring tendinitis struck more than Christmas. I’m nonetheless developing back up to 50km weeks inside the subsequent handful of weeks and will stay there till the Bali Hope 84km Ultra-Marathon, which is in eight weeks on May possibly 25.
If that sounds like a busy week, it was! We also identified time for an Adventure Bag Crew Clean Up at Mt Tapyas. 12 of us collected far more than 20 big garbage bags of trash at the common sunset spot.

We have now arrived in Manila and are placing in a big week of function on the pc prior to heading out sailing for 9 days. I hope you had a terrific week. Right here are the pictures from the week. I’ve began which includes pictures from my telephone camera roll for a raw view at my week of travel as effectively as my favourite drone and DSLR shots from the week.
