I’ve been to the Philippines several times now over the years, but have never been to Boracay until now. I’ve always been obsessed with the thought, but never figured it would be a reality. I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to visit!
My family and I made it into Manila on May 17th very, very early in the morning and our flight to Boracay was supposed to be around 10AM. Wrong. After getting some rest at my Aunt’s house, we headed back to the airport to check-in for our flight, only to find out it had been delayed 4 hours. After getting all settled, grabbing a bite to eat, it’s almost time to board our flight so we head to our gate. And then our flight gets delayed another 2 hours. At this point, we had been traveling for pretty much 2 days straight and we were all just over it lol. Around 5, we finally get to take off and thankfully, it’s only an hour plane ride. We had made it just in time for our very first Boracay sunset.
Waiting in line get back into the airport
how cute is he 😍
the boat ride to the island!
my first Boracay sunset and it didn’t disappoint
That first night, we just hung out around the hotel and got some much needed rest!
The next morning, we got up early and headed down to breakfast and to take a morning swim.
After relaxing at the beach and taking in our beautiful surroundings, we headed over to another part of the island to go “fly fishing” and no, I don’t mean catching fish.
Fly fishing is when you get on one of these terrifying piece of shits pulled by a jet boat. Let’s just say miraculously, I never fell off, but everyone else did. I wish I got footage, but Uriel forgot the water proof casing for the GoPro. I’m sure it would’ve been hilarious! Afterwards, we grabbed some lunch and headed back to the hotel for, you guessed it, more rest haha.
Later that night, we decided to head over to Spider Club and have a couple of drinks as the sun set.
Beer of choice the entire trip lol
golden hour selfies with hubby
And that’s a wrap for the first 24 hours in Boracay! Successful if you don’t count the 2 delays for our flight lol. Stay tuned for the next post!
