THE PHILIPPINES PT 3: PICTURE PERFECT BORACAY.
The day after Christmas, we went with a whole bunch of Patrick's family to Boracay for a couple of days. If you're not used to it, travelling anywhere by road in the Philippines is pretty much a nightmare-- it honestly took us about 10 hours (including one very bumpy ferry ride and one crazy van driver) to get less than 300km's.
But even though the weather wasn't too kind, Boracay was amazing-- I'm talking 'white sand beaches and beautiful crystal-clear water' amazing. Not to mention the cheap massages, cheap drinks and YUMMY, cheap food. It's also super, duper touristy (no thank-you, I really don't want to buy a pair of fake ray-bans!), but we'd definitely go back there in a heartbeat when we visit the Philippines again. Just not travelling by road next time ;)
