The Philippines in 5 Photos

In my 5 months travelling around South East Asia, I allocated almost a month to the Philippines, where by coincidence my Dad and a cousin from the other side of the family live on completely different islands! It is a big place of over 7,000 islands and in a month you can only scratch the surface of this country steeped in beauty, history and friendly, happy people.

Even so, I still managed to see a lot of places without rushing too much and travelled in Luzon, Negros, Bohol, Cebu, Palawan and Cavite. I even managed to tick off a bucket list item by swimming with Whale Sharks in Oslob on the island of Cebu! To attempt to sum up my Philippines experience, here are just 5 photos
