Philippines Unplugged: Jungle treks and exhilarating zip wires with Skinny Living

  • Words: Spindle

Episode 5 of STA Travel‘s ‘Philippines Unplugged’ see’s Skinny Living swap the sea for the road as they drive to El Nido. The four hour journey is the perfect time to work on new songs they’ve been brewing on their trip. They arrive at their hostel, residing between the mountains, and trek through stunning jungles, soaking up the nature and climbing trees to collect coconuts. They return to the water where they fish with the locals. Most exhilaratingly, the guys get to try out a huge zip wire that runs between Las Cabañas Beach and Depeldet Island, with incredible views over the coastal jungle land. Back at their hostel for the evening, the band finish writing the song they’ve been working on, which is clearly inspired by their travels around the beautiful Philippines.
