The biggest struggle of The Hiatus™ so far is not being able to keep tabs on One Direction anywhere near as accurately as we used to be able to do.
Now it's the turn of Niall, who's proven himself to be quite the elusive scamp by disappearing off to Asia for a spot of travelling. But, if he was thinking he could escape the cameras in The Philippines he was sorely mistaken.
Fans spotted him in Boracay in a whole series of regular touristy places, from buses, to beaches, to busy airports - and got a few sneaky pics of his travelling joys along the way, complete with a standard giant red rucksack.
Also, somebody out there managed to get their hands on Niall's actual plane ticket, if there's anyone reading this who requires legitimate proof of his location.
So, Nialler's completely and officially loving life.
