Hi Guys, The new forum is looking good! I thought it was about time I posted on it to contribute and start my post count afresh. I’ve just got back from an extended trip to the Philippines, where I did some travelling around to different islands, with the planned stops being; Donsol/Legazpi Bohol El Nido/Taytay (Apulit Island) The main reason for the trip was to see Whale Sharks, so lets jump in the deep end with a few shots to get the ball rolling… These were taken in Donsol, and it’s hard to explain how incredibly it is to be in the water with such graceful giants. Having travelled around the world extensively it’s always been one of the illusive creatures that I’ve never managed to see (until now) despite being in all the right places at the right times. Here are a few shots from around the area in Donsol where I stayed; Then I skipped across to the other side of the island to Legazpi, where I a hired quad bike (or ATV as y’all call them) to ride up the Mayon Volcano, to the end of the 2006 lava flow for some good shots and nicer views. It’s 2463m and the most symmetrical volcano in the world. (13°15′24″N 123°41′6″E) From Legazpi it was then onto Bohol, this island is known for a number of things (below) and is a lot more developed and touristy than the previous stops.
