Sometimes there's just nothing for it but to stuff your life into a bag, whack on a trilby and go Filipino island-hopping. The guy below (and above) is Tim, who you may recognise from our Kyrgyzstani escape last year. If adventures were a symphony, this man would be first violin. It was the first time scuba-diving for all of us, and the first time on a island with no mainland electricity or water for a few. Afternoons not spent in the water definitely called for lazy behaviour, and the beach-trekking ice-cream man with his bell was naturally an instant hit. When the company is as fine as this merry band, you can be sure this won't be the last plan in the pipeline.
