Siargao is surfing capital of the Philippines and is surrounded by some beautiful white-sand-beach islands. The laid back atmosphere and great restaurants and night life make this a great location and many travellers find themselves staying much longer than expected. I planned a 2 week trip, which became a 4 week stay, which became a 2 month stay, which became a 10 month stay! I just really wanted to experience life on an island for a year and it was the perfect place for my (time lapse) photography, shooting the Milky Way (barely any light pollution) and capture some of the great lightning storms here. You’ll a couple of articles in my blog and don’t miss the time lapse movies and favourite clips in the Time Lapse section!
