I started last year’s post with: “This past year was a big one for me, travel-wise. So much so that I actually think I burned myself out.” Well, I ended up going even bigger this year driving nearly 14,000 miles and flying almost 40,000 miles… New York, Chicago, Boston, Dubai, Singapore, the Maldives, Hawaii and all my normal camping, hiking, biking, and national parks trips around the west.

So here are 13 Photos of the Most Beautiful Island (and Province) in the World.
Before going to the Philippines, it was incredible how many people asked, “Why are you going to visit the Philippines?” Like I was crazy. My answer was almost always, “Because it looks beautiful.”
