Island Hopping in the Philippines with Tao Philippines is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I grabbed with both hands despite some reservations. The facilities at the camps vary but you can expect a decent toilet block with either flushing toilets or a bucket and ladle, cold showers (which may or may not be private) and while some camps have an electricity supply, most don’t. One or two sites have a generator for you to recharge your power banks and cameras but, on the whole, you’ll be without electricity so taking a couple of power banks and spare batteries for your camera is a must, although it surprising how long your phone battery lasts in airplane mode. So, if you don’t mind roughing it a bit, the heat and the odd jellyfish sting (the ones we had really didn’t hurt) and love snorkelling, I urge you to add this to your wishlist.
From how to apply for a visa to the best places to visit in India, from health tips to scams, here are my top India travel tips. The most popular restaurants are also likely to have the best hygiene standards and busy restaurants have a high turn over of food that hasn’t had a chance kept lying around. Bottled mineral water rather than treated water is best as the quality of treated water can vary. Drink plenty of bottled water, making sure the seal isn’t broken before you open it.
It’s a most curious setting for a wine tasting but I’ve been promised both Latvian wine and cider Māra, marketing manager at Kabile Manor Winery explained that the restoration and winery are just the first steps of the realisation of the dreams of three friends or, more accurately, two sisters, both professional athletes, and their architect friend. Tours run in English and Latvian throughout the summer and include the tasting of four ciders and wines, last two hours and can be booked via Facebook, Kabile Manor Winery. A visit to Kabile Manor with cider and wine tasting makes a very interesting, fun and quirky not to mention tasty, day out.
