New Zealand weather is a bag full of surprises. A week of rain and gloom lingered over us then suddenly, this!

We were driving back down to Auckland from the far north, in pitch black winding roads. It was eerily quiet and empty. As I looked up into the sky, I saw the clearest of nights and so, decided to stop. I parked by the side of the road and pointed my camera up to capture the brightest and clearest view of the milky way galaxy I have ever seen.

This is the village of Batad, a small community in the mountains of Ifugao, Philippines. Rice terraces made of clay and stone have been standing here for more than 2,000 years made by people with a rich culture and heritage. This is one of the best places in the world that every explorer must see, in my opinion.

Foggy Auckland morning

I went to the coast hoping to catch an explosive sunrise but was greeted by a long march of clouds instead. I didn’t exactly get what I wanted but I’m still happy with the subtle hues that nature put on display that morning.

You know when you see the words “paradise on Earth” and think that there is no such thing? Well my friends, I’m here to tell you that they really do exist. And this one is in the Philippines!

Having not much free time means rummaging through old photos just to find something to post. Here’s an old one taken in 2008, deep in the belly of Manila’s Chinatown: Binondo.
