No way are you not getting wet in this cave. This caving, spelunking, and trekking adventure was one of the hardest I put myself through in recent memory. So whether you crawl, swim, climb, crouch, or walk in utter darkness save for your head light, this journey into Lobo Cave is one for the books. Putting the link so you can cop this itinerary in @kayekoo bio if you feel like caving in. Photo credit: @thewanderingjuan .

Did you know one of our 7,107 islands is home to the last remaining protected virgin forest reserve in the country? Journey down Sohoton River in Sohoton Natural Bridge Park in Samar and experience this slice of nature for yourself. Link in @kayekoo bio :) .

Yummy 16oz of US Angus cowboy rib-eye bone-in steak (dry aged 28 days naturally). Even better that it's 25% off at @meloscarmelosofficial for lunch with BDO Credit and Debit cards. This and Australian Wagyu at 25% off while Japanese Wagyu is 50% off. This caused all of us to go happily into a 'steak food coma' and made me grateful Ahya had a steak craving to satisfy. .

A 15hr time difference has marked our short-term LDR since last week. We both are amazed at how people before managed without technology like this and how our friends who did long-term LDR kept their relationship going with this kind of technology. You guys are something else! :) #candk2018

When you stop eating pork, thank God for this hefty piece of crock pot beef rump: slow cooked beef and creamy Parmesan polenta. .

A plate half-way through. This Risotto Al Funghi has been a favorite at @mama_lous and I just realized I have never successfully snapped a full plate because we always end up digging in before we remember to take a pic. Here's to more meals so good we forget to photograph them. .

Zusje, kijk wat ik heb gevonden bij het strand in Bali: een tweedehandse kopie voor 40,000 rupiah (4AUD). Hahaha.
Context: It was the only Dutch book being sold so the seller looked at me strangely wondering why I wanted to buy it. It made me think of the Dutch/Belgian tourist who left it behind on their travel. I read the back cover aloud in Dutch so the seller believed me when I said I could speak Dutch. Which is why he also did not discount the price. .

As dusk approaches, our hotel neighbors (all sunned and tanned up) would be getting ready to leave the pool. Being tan-averse, that would be our time to 'wade' in the hotel's 1.65m deep, wrap-around style pool. I am used to filling up each vacation day with tours and places to visit so just hanging back has been a novelty for me. So I have become more flexible in our latest three international travels together and learning, as a friend wisely said, to "charge everything to experience." That way, I find that travel continues to enrich us. .

Coffee by the beach used to not be my thing. I crave a more hectic pace and coffee in this setting feels like doing nothing compared to running about, touring, etc. But, in the spirit of being open, I adapted and discovered that I like coffee by the beach. And chatting with strangers around you as you all lounge around is cool too. And that waiting for the sun to set is an experience in itself. Find The Coffee Library under Capil Beach Bar Grill & Resto fronting Double-Six Hotel on Seminyak Beach. .

Last week, breakfast*brunch looked like this. Bali has been one of our most laid-back trips ever and I firmly confirmed my preference: while I like dining with a view of the beach, I would like it infinitely better if it were a view in a cold location with a gentle breeze for refreshment. Yet our hotel neighbors were soaking up the sun every chance they got. My feed now is filled with friends simply enjoying beach life, sun-up to sundown. This is a "to each his own kind of thing." So wherever this Monday finds us, cheers! .

Thoughtful surprises like this make lunches, dinners, or hotel check-ins memorable. Thank you @manilamarriott for lending a sweet touch to our 9th anniversary celebration.

Oh, Manila's first Marriott also offers sustainable seafood options and awesome steaks at CRU--so if you want to celebrate something, they've got your number.

With just two days interval between this trip and your next one, I know how it felt like for you those times when I had back to back trips. And now you understand better my airport stressors too. But really, adjusting to a simple 15hr time difference the past couple of days has made me appreciate more our friends who made LDR their life. Kicking off our 9th year has been an adventure right from the start, yeobo.
