Believe it or not, despite me being in Boracay always in the Summer because of our annual family vacation at Astoria, it was only my second #Laboracay experience, but probably the best. The island is very known for its great escapes – parties left and right, amusements and shows, the good food and just the beautiful tropics, but it seemed more exciting to me through time especially because of new friends and people that I meet every time, and bonding with family that grows bigger and bigger.
I skipped Boracay last year due to Pattaya and Singapore but I sort of sticked again with my set-up in 2012, where I stayed in the island for around 14-16 days, 1 week apart from family. It was long for sure, but I had some really great adventures. See my photo diary below:
It’s probably one of those shows where I saw my family not minding they’re gay or transgenders. It was all raw talent and skill.
This trip also allowed me to explore more restaurants and food options in the island because of the friends that I met. We usually budget our food and we sort of end up eating the same meals (you’ll see that below haha) but this time I got to try the famous barbeque ribs (Backyard) in the island, going to the talipapa and having a fresh seafood feast, and trying the famous and truly authentic and iconic Real Coffee shop.
The rest of the days without my family, I spent exploring the island with friends. I love that they toured me to places I haven’t been like the Spider House which had an amazing panoramic view of the island, and to Bolabog Beach where Andy stayed at. It was a peaceful beach in the island contrary to the energetic and noisy main beach. It’s 30-40 minutes from D’Mall and it felt like a private resort!
