    Ah, Ste J, I saw the title of your post, and almost thought it was the title of a new book. That would make a good title, you know? “Going Out, I May Be A While”? Perfect for a novel that concentrates on character development of a man and his wife, and he goes out for cigarettes (but really to see his mistress), or perhaps a suspense/murder mystery, in which a similar thing happens, but he ends up dead? Ha-ha! Hope you’re really enjoying your working vacation, and look forward to all the photos to come.

      It does owe a lot to Captain Oates and I do have Scott’s book to read at some point though, I thought the juxtaposition of the association with snow and The Philippines would be a pleasant one. I admire your imagination though, I have many photos, hoping to start posting them in a day or two. It was such a wonderful time my friend.

      I certainly did and picked up a book with you in mind, naturally.

      A 14 hour flight has never passed so quickly on the way there. Now I am sadly back home to the rain and wind of Spring.

      There was one point where I realised there were too many photo opportunities, it was cruel but between two cameras, two phones and a go pro, we captured a lot of good stuff.

      Manila isn’t a city I feel I can enjoy when in the middle of it but it is certainly an experience and quite romantic when reflecting on it. I hope to be back in The Philippines again as soon as I can so maybe we will bump into each other!

          I didn’t spend much time in Manila, I was based in Cavite and went to Batanes as well. I am saving El Fraile Island for next time!

              I did pop into Manila a few times but I would rather be out in the open air where people don’t keep trying to sell me things and the air is cleaner. The van ride out of Manila only took about an hour and a half, so I was quite close although the traffic made it seem like a long journey.

      I had no idea at the time that a photo I borrowed off Wikipedia would be one of the places I went. I also had Balut on my first night as well. It was an amazing time, nothing like I imagined but so much better.

        That’s awesome to hear, glad that you’re loving it. Yeah, it’s hard to anticipate what life has in store for us. How was the balut?

          It was just like chicken, naturally I concluded I was in The Matrix because of that fact. I’m home now so just have to begin sifting through notes for all the best bits, of which there were many.
