Summer has finally begun in our side of the world. Last March 4-6, 2013, my friends and I went to Boracay. This small island by the way is located approximately 315 km (196 mi) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. Boracay Island and its beaches have received awards from numerous travel publications and agencies. The island comprises the barangays of Manoc-Manoc, Balabag, and Yapak municipality of Malay, province of Aklan. The island is administered by the Philippine Tourism Authority and the provincial government of Aklan. Apart from its white sand beaches, Boracay is also famous for being one of the world’s top destination for relaxation. It is also emerging among the top destinations for tranquility and nightlife. In 2012, Boracay was awarded as the best island in the world from the international travel magazine Travel + Leisure.

Beach trip is not complete without hats. I first picked out the brown one.

My first time in the island and I find it so lovely. The sand is pure, white and powdery. No wonder a lot of tourists visit here.

There are a lot of activities to choose from. You can go diving, kite surfing, parasailing, helmet diving, banana boat and a lot more. We chose parasailing, island hopping and helmet diving.

After these activities, you can go bar hopping at night, or simply feed your tummy and go shopping.

A must visit place in the Philippines. Best time to come here is summer of course (March – May).

I know clouds will be a favorite topic so I made sure to take pictures inside the plane. Took these on our way back home from Hong Kong. Weather was good and the clouds looked so clear and crisp. You can see the view of the Philippine islands from the top… Lovely!

The trip to Hong Kong was Dec 27-30 and until now, I haven’t forgotten about it. Maybe never… I shared some, I hope you saw it.

That’s it for now! Happy Friday!
