Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.
This week, Hong Kong was hit by the coldest temperatures in nearly 60 years. Morning temperatures often dropped down to a bone-chilling 37 degrees Fahrenheit (that’s about 3 degrees Celsius) in most urban areas. While this may not seem very cold to most readers (especially those living in the North), I guess I must have acclimatized after living in Hong Kong for four years because it felt like the coldest days of my life and this is coming from a New Jerseyan. All the while, I couldn’t stop thinking about warmer weather and tropical beaches. So in honor of Hong Kong’s coldest day in nearly six decades, I thought it’d be appropriate to share one of my photos from the Philippines. Taken in the Palawan region during a five day expedition from Coron to El Nido, we stumbled upon this desolate island found between the South China and Sulu Seas.
