My husband and I needed that – a day of nothing but relaxation. Its been so stressful because of the cold weather here in Buffalo, it felt so good to just take a break and be away on a stressful job. Perfect timing as its summer in my homeland Philippines. My travel partner is wonderful for making this vacation for real. It’s been three long years since I left my country, we both so exhausted on a long hour’s trip. Upon arrival to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) I never felt that I’ve gone these long, maybe because nothings change. As early as 6am, were waiting for our next flight to Caticlan Boracay but this time with my parent’s. This is our first time that we travel together and it’s going to be so exciting. Our first adventure – Boracay Island.
This little island is quite amazing. The emerald, sea green ocean, the long stretch of white sandy beaches parallel with an abundance of restaurants of various cuisines.... and of course, buffets with "bottom-less iced teas". Willy’s Rock hotel is our "only" place to stay when we go to Boracay. We have our favorite suite overlooking from the beach. It is far enough from the mainstream which is absolutely relaxing. What we like about this place was very close to the shore, you may have your breakfast in front of the shore, or to have a very refreshing fruit shake while watching sunrise or sunset awesome!! This location is great quite far from the crowd, very peaceful, friendly staff and the food was good. Whether you’re traveling alone, with your significant other, or family, it’s worth the money to stay there and soak in the sun, peacefulness and tranquility.

There is plenty of things that you can do in Boracay: island hopping, snorkeling, jet-skiing, sailing , shopping and so on. The first thing which attract my eyes when I arrived in Boracay are the colorful sails floating all over the blue sea. Blue, black, and white sails glided gently across the water and they blended so nicely with the sparkling sea and sunny sky that for a moment, I thought I might have been looking at a postcard. But no, I was really standing in the infamous semi-paradise island of the Philippines. I had never ever sailed in my life before and so I was thrilled by the sight, “Let’s go and try!” I’m glad my husband and my parents have shared the same enthusiasm. Dave and I tried also the Reef walking. We spent two days trying them all, with me casting a longing look now and then onto the floating colors scattered over the blue sea. On our last day, we reserve a good spot on the Beach a dinner for 4, and that moment was the highlight of this wonderful trip.
