Live Your Dream. Sail around the world.

El Nido Hike

We’re in the swing of things after 2 1/2 weeks of vacation. Took a really long time to forget the work stress and the day to day life at home. The days are starting to blur together. Here’s some pics from a short day hike to a waterfall and also others from our motorbike trip.

This is how they dry and process the rice you buy back home. Might be a good idea to wash that rice before you cook it next time!

One of the villages we walked thru had very malnourished dogs. Seems to be a common theme here; Dogs with sores and severely underfed. Really sad to see and makes me wonder if the family’s also don’t have enough food.

The farming families make their own coal, I assume to cook their food with. No idea how exactly this works, but here they were sorting a huge pile of coal.

We stumbled into some loggers as they were hauling milled wood out of the forest. Much of our hike had these massive ruts in it. I couldn’t figure out why at first, but then it hit me. These are the exact width of the boards as they’re hauling out of the of the forest with Ox.
