Diving in Gili T is pleasant. Diving Amed off Bali’s northeast coast is awesome. I’m going to keep the text to a minimum on this post and let the photos tell the story. I recently went for a weekend with three new friends met in Ubud, each of differing dive experience. Three of us did five dives over two days including one of the best night dives I’ve ever done.
For the most part, I believe that travel is and can be affordable and accessible. There’s usually a way to visit even dream destinations like Bora Bora on a budget. But there are a few places that can only be visited if you have a good chunk of money sitting around. Or a job that takes you there. One of those is the northern stretch of Namibia’s Skeleton Coast.

The short list of must-visit places I had for the Philippines when I arrived in December ended with Coron, a place I’d read about more than fifteen years ago.

I’m not a war buff nor a huge fan
