I wrap up my visit in California with 2 more National Parks and a visit to the Eastern Sierras/ Mammoth. I venture beyond barriers and find solitude among mountains, almost die, and find serenity under the milky way grounded in a hot spring. Oh! and I get inspired for my 3rd tattoo (which I get later in TX).
This is my second time to CA and my focus is on NorCal. I return in 2019 and focus on the South.
My last island visit in the Philippines was in the northern Palawan region. I stayed off of Coron Island on a houseboat and then a floating bungalow.

San Francisco to Big Sur- with a stop in Monteray. I go to my first ever Korean bath house and get naked! Then I get food poisoning and almost poop in the street like everyone else. Just kidding- but all of that does happen. I go to Monterey and visit Big Sur. California III will include Sequoia and Yosemite. IV parts total.Read more
