It was meant to be a diving trip. Instead, I only managed to do two dives in Puerto Princesa before the weather turned and several typhoons started to move over the Philippines.

On the 10th of October 2017, I departed from Melbourne and flew with Royal Brunei airlines direct to Manila via Brunei. I spent less than 8 hours in Manila before flying direct to Puerto Princesa where I would start my journey of scuba diving from the south to the north of Palawan.

In this video series, I take you on my journey to Palawan and the only two scuba dives that I managed to do while staying in Puerto Princesa. The following day, I went on a day trip to see the Underground River, one of the 7 natural wonders of nature.

After arriving into El Nido, the weather turned rapidly from bright sunny skies to approaching typhoons. At the time, we were on a yellow boat which broke down and we all had to be rescued.

I’m also a big fan of helping beginners get into great shape. Learn how to setup a basic weight lifting plan, or use smartphone apps to lose fat and build muscle.

I hope you enjoy some of the videos from this video series, see below.
