Riding Philippines, motor road trip, Siquijor

Motorcycle Road trip on Siquijor Island

In the years 2015-2019 I did several motorcycle trips through the Philippines. I have so much footage that I never used anymore. I found a way to work through all that and show it on my YouTube Channel. Today I take you on a ride to my house on Siquijor Island. 

The roads are not always nice in the Philippines when you compare them to the Netherlands for example. And there is a lot going on on those roads as well. You have to concentrate and drive with caution. Driving is a challenge especially for a beginning motorcycle driver like I was back then.

I talk you through the video, explaining how it is to ride in the Philippines and why this road to my house is so challenging. 


The video has a Dutch voiceover but you can use the automatic translation in your youtube settings for your prefered language.

    I left the Philippines in January 2019 which is during the winter but way after the rain season. By that time I had lived in the Philippines for more than 3 years.

    Jc, may I ask if you left Philippines during rainy season?

    Hope all well in Mexico.
