Maarat trail ride with Jaime Dempsey
I met Jaime about 2 years ago, it was over lunch. I just won the Wrangler True Wanderer 2015 and from what I know it was her first time here and Wrangler got her as an ambassador for the competition. Wrangler organized a meet and greet with us finalists to sort of celebrate and cap off the competition.
We got to the top with no problems.
Everyone was delighted to reach the top without encountering any problems. The way everyone rode made everything seem easy, even Jaime was riding confidently and comfortably. So were all smiles once we reached the top, everybody was taking selfies and getting photos to prove that they were able to take their custom bikes to the top. I, on the other hand was busy taking shots and sorting out the action cams in hopes of getting something once we start heading back.

When I got to the table where the rest of the finalists of the 2015 Wrangler True Wanderer was sitting, I noticed one un-familiar face. From what I can remember there’s only one female finalist, so who can this lady be?
The loveliest couple.
A lot of people that I have met during my Travel by Heart 2014-15 PH tour are proud to say that they have worked in Manila. But there’s a different sense of honor and satisfaction when they tell me why they choose to go back and stay in the provinces. Continue reading
The beach on the rear part of the island.
The girl was right, after 15 minutes I have pretty much toured the whole island.
I love reading books!
After almost getting everyone back in the hotel we proceeded to rest. I then realised that I was bleeding again, I got a pillow cover and stripped it to cover my wound. Then someone informed me that apparently there’s a doctor 2 floors above us and she was treating the injured.

I woke up the next morning unsure of what I’m going to do first. There’s just a lot of things that I feel that i need to accomplish in this place not entirely sure where to start. “Breakfast!” that would help me get my mind straight.
300kms more before I get to Tacloban, I did say that I did not plan to have a route on this trip, but I just have to visit this place as we have a lot some unfinished business.
This is Samar
I arrived at the port at around dinner time. After getting-off from the the RO-RO I immediately went out to search for food, one of the best things about traveling here in the Philippines is the food, why? Because you don’t have to pay a huge amount of to get decent food, that is if you are not picky when it comes to what you eat. As for me I really like home cooked meals and here in the PH you will always find a “carinderia” a small place where you can eat where most of what they serve are home cooked meals.

I don’t usually do this. I’m often invited to ride with different groups, sometimes people want to join me on my rides, other times a tour, resort or a hotel would invite me to visit them and almost always I say “No”. I can list down the reasons why I say no to those invitations, but that’s not topic of this post. I do however want to let you know why I said “Yes” to this one.
