My Boracay Adventure In Pictures

Sorry, this is long overdue. I promised to post this some months ago, but I never had the chance to because of my then-busy schedule. Anyway, this is a peek into my Boracay adventure last May 2012. I was there for three nights and four days with my family. It was actually our (my sister and I) birthday gift to our Dad, who turned 71 on May 5th.

Everything was kept under wraps from him until about two weeks before our departure. Daddy had a grand time. We all did!

Yes, many people say that Boracay is too commercialized and tourists overflow, no matter what time of year. That was my thought, too, when my sister first told me that we were going there. But the minute I stepped off the plane, all my previous assumptions disappeared.

Boracay is the perfect place to relax and unwind. I was coming off from a work-loaded week and needed to take a break. I had allergies because of the summer heat and all the work-related stress. Boracay was the sanctuary that I needed. Not only was I able to relax and unwind, I also got to spend time with the most special people in my life. Of course, the fact that we stayed in one of the best hotels in the island was a big plus factor!

So, here are some pics from that awesome Boracay adventure with my family. There are a lot of beautiful places in the Philippines, and if you’re planning to visit some of them, please include Boracay in your list. You won’t regret doing so!
