the Philippines, 2015-2018
While being in the Philippines I've been to many places over the last 3 years. I've been to several places multiple times. Just because I like it there. The Philippines is a great country to explore and to see all the sights. The landscape can be challenging and impressive at times. Roads are often a hassle but that's part of the adventure.
having spent a while in the Philippines, immigration law dictates me and JC leave the country. We decided to take a little vacation to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to do some shopping and be allowed to 'reset' our visa. Overall, Kuala Lumpur is a nice place to be. The shopping and dining is very nice. We had a blast trying out all kinds of foods. Some we didn't eat for years. Others we're completely new to us.
the Philippines, 2018-2019
After our trip to Malaysia I continued on in the Philippines. Unfortunately the rapidly changing political climate, the lack of development and progress in the country seems so much more apparent having seen Malaysia. To make matters worse I've come to realise I don't fit in with the people, either.
I'm still considering some shorter trips but since I'm also thinking about leaving the Philippines I'm not sure what to do or where to go... Maybe I'll go to southern Europe for a while. Or visit some other Asian countries.
