Boracay Island, Philippines, June 2004
There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open."
Life doesn't offer us a lot of great promises. We wouldn't really know what's in store for us and what awaits us from day to day. Tis the reason why we took advantage of a last fling at summer on a mid-June sked. Knowing that June is the start of strong monsoon rains, going to a beach was practically throwing all caution away and going against the possibilities of blue skies, sunny dips in the beach, star studded night skies and long walks from station to station.
Well, we bit the bullet and we were rewarded generously. Here is my story:
Day 1: What makes vacations and holidays partly memorable are the happenstances and mishaps along the way, an episode of mistaken identity with our airport taxi, a brief tussle with airport security and almost losing my swiss knife to the airport authorities were the last memories of Manila. Nonetheless, flying to Boracay via Seair was rather an uneventful 50-minute flight, nary the problems of a 9,000ft flying 16-footer plane being unsafe that my mom was constantly warning me. Trust my mom, she knows, but still we pushed through since the sun was high up when we left Manila at 10:30am. (I learned that soon after strong rains fell - whew!)
We arrived in one piece.
After a 15-minute motorized outrigger trip amidst "semi" rough seas we were in Boracay - after 5 long years of waiting.
