Negros: Dumaguete, Sipalay and Sugar Beach

There's no place to island hop like the Philippines

Negros is just one of many islands in the Philippines where I wish I had more time to spend. But with a strict time budget and the after-shakes that continued a long way around I decided to head towards north, but not without experiencing Dumaguete, Sipalay and Sugar Beach first (and the MassKara festival in Bacolod, but that comes later).

Philippines: Bohol - Chocolate Hills, Tarsiers and Earthquake!

I have never met so many smiling, friendly and not the least, honest people as in Bohol. I had read only a little bit about the 7000 islands before I went, but what stuck in my head was Bohol. The island of the Tarsier, Chocolate Hills and an unfortunate earthquake.
