Goodbye Surigao traveling
Goodbye Surigao
(July 23, 2013) Once again, I go through this repeating cycle of coming down from a bus, a stranger in a strange land, not knowing anyone, just there for a night, and before I know it, the one night stand turns nearly into a 2-month relationship of abundance, friendship and productivity.

With lodging being too pricey, I found the perfect sleeping place - alfresco and best of all, it's free....more »»
