Hoping for stars but the inversion has us covered in clouds. Woke up to this nice little scene which will do for now...
https://instatbt.com/Place/bohol/234552031Bohol🇬🇧 From Hong Kong to The Philippines, which- believe it or not- is the last chapter on our trip for now. Time is running by so fast! While we planned to have some nice chillout days on the beach and do some diving, this tropical storm is defining our days at the moment. Not much you can do about it though, besides hope that it will get better soon 🤷🏻♀️ But we got some company (and Cristmas cookies!) from Austria, say Hi to Astrid! ————————————————————
🇦🇹 Von Hong Kong auf die Philippinen, unser, ob ihr es glaubt oder nicht, letztes Ziel für diese Reise. Viel zu schnell gehen die Tage rum! Während wir eigentlich geplant hatten ein paar gemütliche Tage am Strand und mit Tauchen zu verbringen hat uns im Moment der Tropensturm hier fest im Griff. Kann man nicht ändern, außer hoffen, dass es bald besser wird 🤷🏻♀️ Aber wir haben kurzzeitige Verstärkung bekommen (und Weihnachtskekse!): Sagt Hallo zu Astrid! .
https://instatbt.com/Place/yading-nature-reserve/620988384769890Yading Nature ReserveWhat if we had no boundaries? I dearly miss certain places in this world as a global mountain nomad. To me going to one continent and the other is like going to one part of the house from another without boundaries or divisions to keep me away. In one part of China lies the beautiful Yading Nature Reserve, where lakes look milky and the peaks are holy and revered by the local Tibetans. In this place, I trekked as a pilgrim and completed 30 kilometers of a trek between 4000-5000 meters in altitude the entire time along with one lone female traveler from Thailand who I met by chance. Just me and her for 13 hours of hiking, before sunrise until beyond sunset. It was one of the toughest hikes I've ever done but spiritually the most enlightening as we ventured into a place with thousands of prayer flags around us and where we followed the footsteps of the local Tibetans who annually walked this trail to reconnect with their spirit side. I'm grateful always to be this lucky to call the entire world my home and knowing that I can always be there because this journey of mine (and yours) has no boundaries. iamamountaintrekkerBeaPeakExplorerhikingbackpackingtraveltrekkingchinadiversifyoutdoorstravelbloggernomadwomenempowermentforceofnatureinstafeedteamhlawadventuresomewomenoutdoorbloggerbrowngaltrekkerpeakexplorationsnatureoutdoorwomen

https://instatbt.com/Place/jaro-cathedral/306426156Jaro CathedralRounding up, my Iloilo sidetrip is one of the best so far considering that I went here primarily to work-- for Resorts World Manila's provincial career caravan.
From touring around probably one of the cleanest places I have been in-- I have observed literally 0% trash disposed improperly during my almost 4 days of stay in Iloilo (aside from the fact that it is also a smoke-free environment), to trips around the city abound with establishments and institutions of intricate architectural designs. Going to Garin Farm; yielding freely to sumptous local diners and its delicacies such as the La Paz Batchoy and seafood dishes of great value for money-- like a plate of buttered oysters we got for 90php that amounts to 500php if you were in Manila honestly, as well as Madge coffee, to name one among the countless coffee shops in the city. Ilonggos love coffee. This is the place for me. Tanan manamit!
My most favorite though was visiting the local churches-- Miag-ao Church, Molo Parish Church across The Molo Mansion and Jaro Cathedral. The churches were actually far from one another, but also because I wished, we took the time and effort to visit and light candles. It was worth it.
Definitely will go back to Iloilo for everything mentioned above and more. Plus, our career caravan here was successful! Thanks to tynsindol and newfound friends, Dave and Rouen for an awesome company. Looping in iamjiulia ❤
