Good Eats with Mel Pangan's Davao Food Tour
(Aug 26, 2016) Anyone can do a food tour...just read up on food on a destination, connect the dots and do the leg work. As a DIY budget backpacker, that's how I do it. I could get lost, maybe get scammed, maybe the place closed down, or just couldn't find the place. There are no guarantees. However, I got the chance to actually participate in an organized food tour of Davao by Mel Pangan. Big difference!....more »»

Ubud was so enchanting and engaging, I stayed a full 21 days, maxing-out my visa allowance, to the exclusion of other places in Bali. Ubud was intense I needed to decompress when I finally left. What a special place...truly special!....more »»
