Time has gone unbelievably quickly, it’s hard for me to think that i have been here for 3 months already!!! Now where to begin… Thinking back to my arrival it was just after midday when i arrived as my flight from Manila was delayed by 4 hours so i had a …
"Same, same, but different" is a slogan printed on t-shirts sold in tourist shops all over Thailand' and it perfectly sums up the cultural differences between east and west. Whilst Tesco Lotus, Starbucks and McDonalds abound, the plastic life-size Ronald McDonald standing outside the fast-food joint in Krabi has his hands in a traditional Wai - like he's praying. On my arrival at the Surin Project (surinproject.org), Osha, one of the volunteer …

Do your research into the country that you’re travelling to... For many this will be the first thing on your To Do list, but make sure you know the area that you are going too.

This is to provide inside tips about travelling around the Philippines.
To all those travelling to the Philippines let me just tell you that as soon as possible change one of your P500 or P1000 notes and get some 20, 50 and 100 Peso notes. Try and do this before you get a taxi for example because many taxi drivers will say they do not have change and you will end up paying far too much for your taxi ride. Also, when travelling by taxi always use a metre taxi and make sure that they switch it on so you don't get ripped off!
