This February and march I’ve been on a two month bikepacking vacation to the Philippines. It was a first for me on many accounts; My first vacation outside of Europe, my first time in a plane, my first vacation without a car or motorcycle to bring me everywhere I desire. And it was also my first real bikepacking, except for some small trips in my home environment. Preparation It was difficult to find good information on how and where to go bikepacking in the Philippines. So I joined a bikepacking group on Facebook to get some information. On this group everyone was pointing me in the direction of one guy, Dru. Dru had an YouTube channel about bikepacking and was going to organize an 4-days bikepacking in the Mountain Province. He immediately invited me to join in on this trip, so there it was, my first plans for the adventure.
