first trip of 2014.. solo trip to boracay! hehe.
first time having them sending me off or flight! experience one of the worst turbulence.. but all’s well!
after the custom, you could either look for van + boat at 250 or you could pre arrange the transport at boracay guide or with your hotel/resort. i had mine pre arranged with frendz resort!
its a 1hr 45 mins ride from airport to the ferry terminal with many locals waving to us along the way.. one kid jumped up from his seat and wave frantically just to get our attention. too adorable.. i can still remember his smile now. traffic’s like in batam where you hear the horn quite frequently.. but the ride was smooth, at least to me. but don’t take my words since i don’t get car sick. (and i was typing this while looking out of the coach to look at sceneries, smile at the locals and listening to the calming songs playing in coach all at the same time.)
it was already dark when i arrived at boracay and i had to walked through this really dark alley before reaching my hostel which kinda freaked me out a little..
and this is how my room look like.. a 7 pax female dorm with lizards and mosquitoes, no aircon, no hot shower, the floor and stairs squeaks as i walk, no wifi except for lobby. but.. no complains! loving it~
actually i didn’t really do much for this trip. had a few meetings and some did some groundwork.. the rest of the time is spend loitering, by the beach, having drinks and just enjoying my own alone time. so here are some more pictures of boracay~
ooooooooooh. am so missing there now.
till we meet again, boracay.. ♥
