Dive fiesta, Pinoy style
The Philippines is to scuba divers what Switzerland is to skiers, Hawaii to surfers, and Nepal to mountaineers." This is how international magazine Action Asia Adventure Travel Guide describes the diversity and majesty of the dive experience in the country.
In a bid to establish the country as the "dive center of Asia," Philippines Tourism Secretary Richard Gordon has put together the "Dive Fiesta Philippines," a promotions program that showcases the diversity, quality and unparalleled range of dive destinations in the country, topped off with a wide range of fiesta-inspired activities and thematic events slated until December this year.
Paws for thought
You may not be in any real danger, but the thought of tigers, leopards, packs of wild dogs, king cobras, herds of elephants and a couple of species of bears being in the same forest definitely adds some spice to an off-track walk far from any sign of civilisation.
After crossing an inlet aboard a raft of stout bamboo, adventurers walk along narrow tracks and across open clearings of long grass. It pays to watch out for elephant droppings the size of soccer balls.
Journey of Discovery
The first destination on our trip was Romania, where we ministered to poverty-stricken people with Phil and Adinela Ness, a missionary couple who live in Romania about nine months out of the year.
The couple works with youth in a village called Marga in northwestern Romania. According to Adinela Ness, who grew up in Romania, neither the Orthodox nor the Evangelical Christian Church has a program truly geared toward youth. Teens and children are rejecting the religion of their parents for the freedom of living their own lives.
Craig Dostie, publisher of Couloir and Telemark Skier magazines, thumbed through a copy of "Sierra Spring Ski Touring," a 1971 guidebook written by H.G. Burhenne.
The black-and-white cover photo, taken during Burhenne's late 1960s travels in the Sierra Nevada, showed two men standing in the snow in front of a Sierra peak. Dostie pointed to the unusual skis stuck in the snow beside the men.
"He's already onto it - super fat skis," he said.
Super fat skis, the tool of backcountry skiers, have been around longer than most people know, but only recently have they begun to earn widespread popularity in the ski world, he said.
