If you know me, you know for a not-so-brief period in time, I was quite fond of One Direction. Actually I’m still in love with One Direction.. Just not as much as I was in 2012 (my fellow 1D Fans know that was the best time to be in love with One Direction, am I right?!). I swear this ties into the topic. The boys, particularly Niall Horan, are big fans of Nandos Peri-Peri. Within the past couple of months, they’ve managed to open, not just one location in Chicago, but two and I’ve been absolutely dying to go. So since Uriel and I were going to be heading down there to see one of his friends perform, I couldn’t wait any longer! Continue reading
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.
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.
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.
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!
