Hey, I'm Herwig!
Puerto Princesa, MIMAROPA, Philippines · Member since September 2012

Hi ! My name is Herwig but do call me Gilles. All my friends do. I'm a nature lover with an independent and adventurous spirit. I am Belgian. I used to travel extensively, came to the Philippines in '98, fell in love with the country and with Theresa -now my wife- and never left. Theresa is an amazing cook (very creative !) and she loves to bake as well. Her cheese cakes and cinnamon rolls are out of this world.
We both love music, pristine nature and good food.
We live in two places: we have a house in the city (Puerto Princesa) and a summer house on the West Coast of Palawan. It's here that you will find the best beaches as well as untouched rain forest. We like to move often between locations.
We would love to share our private paradise with you. If you're an adventurous type, I will take you hiking on hunting trails of the indigenous people. We can go night fishing or we cross some rivers on a dirt bike. We can go bird watching in the rain forest or you can simply spend a morning in the privacy of your own beach. By the way, we grow our own veggies, herbs and spices (100% organic) and harvest fresh for every meal. Your eggs will be free range. We don't use processed food.
