Zarbaraki

I came to Japan after graduating with a social science degree and an anxious sense of "what do I do with my life?". Somehow I'm still here and haven't yet figured it out. This blog ranges from my experiences on the JET program, where I was placed in Ibaraki prefecture in 2013, to where I currently am: a salarywoman in Tokyo. This blog is a collection of my embarrassing misadventures and is in the tone of "the voice in your head" in the key of "a whiny sarcastic British person".

BoracayCompass - The Ultimate Guide

Hi I'm Paul, an expat living in Boracay Island in the Philippines. I started BoracayCompass in 2013 to help expats and travelers alike make the most of their stay on the island. Since then the site has grown a lot, not just in traffic but also in engagement: I get lots of emails and comments from happy and thankful visitors, which motivates me to keep on building out the website even further to truly make it the ultimate guide. I do this through writing very detailed in-depth guides about all things Boracay, such as what the fun things to do are, the cost of living, where to stay, how to get there etc. Basically, everything you need to know about the island. In the future I also plan to 1. set up a local community section and 2. write in-depth articles to promote environmental sustainability on the island, because I love Boracay but the trajectory of current development isn't sustainable, so we need to start taking matters into our own hands and correct the current development trajectory towards a more sustainable one.
