My ebooks are travel biographies of the observations and experiences of a blind man as he travels around the world having crazy adventures. The first instalment, Seeing the World My Way, describes my early journeys: out for adventure but consumed by alcohol as a method for dealing with my disabilities.

My second ebook, Seeing the Americas My Way, is a more sober, yet more emotional tale. It highlights my challenges of confronting personal issues whilst travelling.

Videos at Pulang Bato Falls, Dumaguete, Negros Island, Philippines (5th February 2019)

This is the first video at Pulang Bato (Red Rock) Falls, near Dumaguete City, in the south part of Negros Island, central Philippines. It’s an easy waterfall to reach by motorbike and has easy access down concrete steps and rocks. Crossing the river to get closer to the falls is slightly tricky, as the rocks are slippery, but not really difficult. There are few people on a weekday and the sound of the falls is wonderful. The smell from the nearby hot springs is strong! A very close-up view and audio of this wonderful waterfall. Tony crossed the river with help, slipping on boulders and rocks, but it was worth it for the view and sound :). This is what travelling is all about!
