We came to the Philippines with high expectations regarding its beaches. We've seen dozens of photos showing enormous stretches of white sand bathed by water as blue as anyone can imagine. However, after 3 days at Bohol we can say that the amount of vegetation covering the islands is even more impressive than their beaches. Everywhere you go there are huge palm trees or other type of lush vegetation that most of the times covers every square inch of terrain and only ends right at the beginning of the beaches where the white sand starts. Riding a scooter around the peaceful roads of the islands while enjoying the green scenery is almost as relaxing as spending a day sunbathing at the beach

Our time at Vietnam has come to an end. We were sad when had to leave Ho Chi Minh last monday. We loved our routine at the city and we loved even more the school where we worked and all the great people that we met there. After a trip that lasted 18 hours and involved catching 2 airplanes and a boat we finally arrived to Bohol in the Philippines. We were a bit tired this morning and on a bad mood. We decided to spent the afternoon at the beach to relax even though we were warned that beaches in Bohol are not great. As soon as we arrived the "not so great" beach this is what we saw. Needless to say that we are still tired but definitely not in a bad mood anymore
Japan has treated us well. I feel like we barely scratched the surface of things to see and do (and eat!), which means we’ll have to come back! .
Favorite Japan travel tips:
Check etiquette before you go. It’s super convenient but super rude to eat while walking or on the train (oops.. learned that one the hard way) .
Just like China, leave your shoes at the door
Eat ALL the convenience store food, you will thank me. .
Skip ride share services, the metro can get you pretty much anywhere for significantly less ¥¥¥. .
Speaking of which, pick up a Suica metro card, it makes traveling so much easier. .
Learn basic phrases like, hello, thank you, I want this, and goodbye. Most people speak English, but it always helps to make an effort. .
Portable WiFi devices that you can get at the airport are really handy, but you can also find WiFi at most public spaces in exchange for your email address. .
If you have the option, fly in/out of Haneda, it’s closer. .
If you’re into meeting new people, download the #Couchsurfing app and look at the hangouts, there’s always other travelers exploring the area or interested in grabbing a drink.
Take time to rest. We walked about 60 miles in a week & our bodies felt it. You won’t miss all the things if you go take a nap or relax at the local bath house. .
Oh! Go to a bath house! It’s a great cultural experience. (But look up the etiquette on that too before you go)
In Tokyo, stand on the left on escalators, walk on the left side of the street (unless directed otherwise)
Find a cool neighborhood and get lost.
