A different look at Coron

Finally made it back to Coron. After four years, the town has seen some addition of new concrete building (nothing too high), and an extended harbour. The ubiquitous zipline also makes an appearance.

Muji’s new Smart Travel items

This is an advertorial

I’ve always loved and lauded Muji’s travel items, so I’m delighted to find out that they’re expanding their range of travel items. Among their new products, my wish list/to-buy includes:
