This is part 7 of British backpacker Will Hatton's travel diary documenting his first trip to the Philippines. Follow along with his Philippine adventure right here on Rappler.
For years now, my dream has been to eventually open a couple of hostels. I have been searching long and hard for the perfect place to build the first one. With plenty of isolated islands, epic surfing and friendly people it seems that the Philippines offers everything I’ve looking for. I will be coming back. – Rappler.com
