The Best Dumplings in Taipei, Taiwan

I’m not really sure what I’m doing in Taiwan. You ever wake up one morning and say to yourself, today I’d really like to go somewhere new?  Maybe a new part of town or a new restaurant you’ve never been to? Today I felt like that, but I wanted some “real deal” Chinese food, so [...]

Boracay in Pictures and Video

Boracay is one of those places that unfortunately, isn’t very photogenic.  The real life Boracay blows these pics and video out of the water!
With a place as beautiful as Boracay, I’m sure to visit again soon.  Next up I’m leaving the Philippines for a bit.  See you in Taipei, Taiwan for some incredible Chinese food [...]

Beachin it in Boracay!

For Filipinos, Boracay is one of their biggest national prides.  It’s their version of Hawaii but to get to this famed island was quite a journey.
I booked a direct flight on SeAir out of Cebu. When I arrived at the check-in counter no one was there.  Next door at Zest Airlines the attendant told [...]

GET FOXY’S 1 YEAR TRAVEL ANNIVERSARY!

After 365 days of world travels, I’m happy to announce that today marks the 1 year anniversary of the beginning of my journey. It was a year ago today that I set foot onto a plane bound for Panama. My initial goal had been to visit most of the world’s countries in a 3 [...]

Dumaguete to Cebu by Bus

If you are looking for a way to get from Dumaguete to Cebu or vice-versa then I’d highly recommend taking the Ceres Liner (full sized air-conditioned bus) for the 4 hour trip over taking the Oceanjet “fast ferry”.
For one, you still get a 30 minute boat ride out of the transportation but better yet, the [...]

Siquijor, the Island of Fire – An Epic 5 Days

Filipinos say the island of Siquijor is mystical, enchanting and spiritual. It is further said to have magic potions, shamans, sorcerers and witches; and these superstitions cause many Filipinos to refuse to stay overnight on this island due to fear. For me, if I get the “pleasure” to see anything unusual occur it’ll be a great [...]

The Apo Island Experience

Apo is a top 10 world renown island for diving located roughly off the coast of Zamboanguita, Philippines. Unfortunately, I haven’t yet gotten the huevos to dawn a wet-suit with a tank of oxygen strapped to my back and plunge into the ocean so this will be a more relaxed “tame” trip to the island.
As [...]

Zamboanguita, Negros Oriental, Philippines

Zamboanguita is to Negros Oriental, Philippines as Fallbrook is to California, USA.  Ah, never mind, the point is, the city of Zambo is a small, rural city. After over 4 hours of travel time from Cebu to Dumaguete on the “fast ferry” I was ready to be there but still had another 30 minutes of [...]

OceanJet Fast Ferry to Negros, Philippines

I had plans to goto Boracay until I got an e-mail yesterday from my 20 yr old Filipina friend Jenny. She is a Cebuana but is visiting her Sister in Zamboanguita on the island of Negros, Philippines.  After doing a Skype video chat session with her for nearly four hours she convinced me to put [...]
