In September of 2016, I partially ticked an item on my Gallivant To Do List with a motorcycle road trip from Cebu to Manila and back. And though it wasn’t the full Luzon-Visayas-Mindanao Road Trip I’ve been wanting to do, the 1,000-mile ride was still an inspiring reminder of how much more the Philippines is than just its cities.
Only ten days on the road, total, the trip was sadly shorter than I’d have liked. But it was still more than enough to stoke the fires and get me excited for my eventual larger ride. It may still be years away, but it’s going to be amazing.
