Mayon Volcano, Cagsawa Ruins, Philippines

Christine travelled to Legazpi to see Mayon Volcano. Flying into Legazpi, we were amazed at the beautiful landscape, thousands of coconut palms cover the surrounding hills of Bicol, the southernmost region of Luzon. In the distance, the almost perfect cone of Mayon Volcano appears, rising through the clouds, 8,081 ft (2,043 m) in elevation.

Namibian Dreams - Visual Diary from the African Desert

That's exactly what this video is—there's no direct story or plot line. It's a moving diary, a series of images they captured travelling through the beautiful and far country of Namibia. Ross Borden (Matador Network CEO/Co-founder) was behind the wheel and for two weeks they travelled down desolate, dusty roads on an epic road trip that neither of them will soon forget. They were in country to attend the ATTA's Adventure Travel World Summit. Last year it was hosted in Namibia, and Matador was invited to come down and be part of the "storytelling team."

The following are the sights and sounds they encountered while making their way through Namibia. I hope you enjoy this country's beauty as much as they did.

National Geographic Guardians Of Nature. Sardinia




Sardinia, a large island in the Mediterranean Sea, has nearly 2,000km of coastline, sandy beaches and a mountainous interior popular for hiking. Its rugged landscape is dotted with thousands of “nuraghi” – ruins of mysterious Bronze-age stone structures shaped like beehives. The southern capital, Cagliari, has a medieval quarter called Castello, with narrow streets.

A drone’s eye view of Necker Island

Sir Richard Branson welcomed six drones to Necker and they’ve captured stunning footage of this beautiful island they call home.

According to Sir Richard Branson, “Every morning before breakfast I go for a walk around Necker. I’m incredibly lucky to have had Necker in my life for nearly 40 years, and I feel I know it like the back of my hand. So it’s amazing to get views of this island that I’ve never seen before thanks to a few drones and the great team at 3D Robotics, a company I recently invested in. They even shot me playing tennis and kitesurfing to Moskito Island!

It’s amazing to see what a little flying object with a GoPro attached can do; before they came along the alternative was an expensive helicopter and crew. I’m really excited about the potential for drones, and I hope this affordable technology will give many more people the chance to see our beautiful planet from such a powerful perspective.

But it’s not just about beauty shots. When you say the word ‘drone’, most people will think about military drones, which are used for surveillance and warfare. But this increasingly affordable, easy to use technology is starting to be used around the world in many positive ways. Like to monitor endangered species, deliver healthcare to remote areas, and help manage natural disasters.

We’ll be sharing lots of stories about people and organisations involved in drones over on Virgin Unite from next week in our ‘Drones for good’ series”.

You have to lie down flat to squeeze between these lagoons


This is Twin Lagoon in Coron, Philippines.

Twin lagoon is really one of the highlights of Coron's island hopping experience.

The first lagoon is where the boats dock, while the second lagoon is concealed, the only access of which is a small crack underneath the rock, or during high tide, a ladder over the rock.

One may notice that the waters in the twin lagoons may sometimes be foggy, this is caused by the meeting of the salt water and fresh water.

The temperature of the waters in the Twin Lagoons also alternates between warm and cold, where the cold freshwater meets the hot salt water.

It is very restful to just take a life jacket and just float and drift in the lagoon.
