Oh, Boracay. How I loved thee, and I barely knew yee. Boracay is a tiny island just south of Manila in the Phillippines. There is no airport on the actual island of Boracay but there are two on the island next door that is only a 15 minute ferry ride.
Touching down in Manila in the Philippines, we had heard a lot of negatives and about how dodgy it can be. We took an overnight flight from Vietnam to Manila and planned on spending less than 24 hours there before heading on to the island of Palawan. Well, it was an interesting 24 hours.
The end of my Philippines trip found me planted in Boracay for a week. Which was lucky because it led me to the best place to watch the sunset in Boracay: Spider House.
This is a lesson in taking and embracing what life throws at you. I was in the Philippines during a typhoon.
Welp, I’m currently somewhere 30,000 feet above Nevada heading out on my next adventure. First stop, San Francisco for two days.
