Resources Best Travel Sites and Mobile Apps

This is a growing list of my favorite resources that I’ve found during my travels.  The websites and other resources are hand picked I use on a daily basis.

The Good Shepherd Hostel Makati First Impressions

I never thought I would actually get my confidence enough to actually make the jump to staying in a Hostel. Most of my travel life has been bouncing around from 5 star hotels to the lowest imaginable dumps as low as 1 star! Needless to say, I was worried about my new decision to stay here at a Hostel.  One of the realities that I face was the realization that I’ll have to share a room with 8 other total strangers, other than family. Adding to the feeling was that the rooms are mixed gender.  We had couples and singles all sharing a smallish...

Casa Nicarosa Hotel & Residences, Malate, Manila, Philippines – The Good, Bad and downright confusing 3 nights stay Ok so rarely do I get a chance to stay in a hotel here in the dark side of Manila, Malate and have a good stay.  My stay at the Casa Nicarosa Hotel and Residences was one such good stay, but with a caveat.

It is for sure a serene home nestled within a residential area in back and covered with the back of a mid-rise office structure.  What about the...

Dumaguete Civil Defense Mechanical Air Siren Single-Tone World War 2

Dumaguete has an civil ordinance that requires that minors are off the street by 10 p.m. So on one of my visits to Dumaguete, I was startled awake by the blare of an air raid siren! I asked around and found out that a repurposed air raid mechanical siren was used as a way of letting the city population know that it’s time for minors to go home. It’s loud and can be heard from most of Dumaguete. In this video, I attempt to get as close as was aloud to the air siren. Hopefully next time, I’ll see if...

Mandaluyong Manila Philippines Drums Wakeup

What is up with loud banging drums at 6 am?  I guess you can expect anything in the Mandaluyong,  Philippines.  This new video is really just about a rude wakeup and some random work thoughts.  Also, I need to find an apartment for longer term stay.
