Polaroid of the week: Boracay, the Philippines – Paradise found

Aaah, the Philippines… I don’t even know where to start! So far, I’ve had an amazing time here – much better even than I expected. Not that I wasn’t expecting to like a few weeks of beach and island hopping, but I just didn’t expect these islands to be soooo pretty. Even though I am moving around quite a lot (because as usual, I want to see it all.. but I cut down my itinerary already) I feel relaxed and mellow. There have been frustrations, too (the food! complicated travel planning!), but how can I stay mad for long with picture-perfect tropical beaches like White Beach in Boracay (pictured) or San Juan Beach in Siquijor. After a few days in Manila, Boracay was the perfect introduction to the lazy beach life in the Philippines and I almost didn’t leave because it’s so easy to get sucked into the easy life of playing in the water, working with this dreamy view, sun tanning, watching the sunset with a $1 beer and going out to dance the night away with new friends from the hostel…rinse…repeat…

Luckily I did manage to tear myself away from this island paradise – because there are many more island paradises to be explored…

Boracay was beautiful, but I was surprised just how tourist-driven it really is! We were just there for a couple of days though on our last trip (and spent several days in Manila, so it was a nice beach getaway!) I'm glad you got to see so many different places of a very beautiful country!

I will agree Borocay is paradise, and king of amazing sunsets!
