I first came to Boracay in 2011 with my friends in a group of around 12 to 15 people. I was still young, inexperienced in travelling and well, didn't really know how to go about it. It was a fun experience though, and I did love how tanned I was.
Here are a few photos that I took using my friend's Canon SLR.
It was also the time I realized that I found Canon hard to use (for me, not in general). That was when I decided for myself that I will definitely be using a Nikon SLR ;)
My latest trip to Boracay was June 2013, and I will be returning there on April this year. I went there with my two girl friends Mae and Dhess. It was really fun to travel in a small group. It's actually much easier to have fun when there's not much of you travelling together because you can easily decide on what to do and what not. It was also my first time to travel in a small group.

I was sort of in a strict diet but I was definitely not holding back while we were there! On the way to Boracay, we were given these tour guide books and it was really helpful because it does say the best places to go to, and it is up to date. We were able to go to restaurants that I didn't know exists before, or weren't actually there a few years back. Then we also heard about this place called Real Coffee where you can find their all original Calamansi Muffin! We did go there and yes it was awesome! The owner of the cafe was also very friendly.

We hit on many buffet spots and cheap finds and it was good! I recommend trying out the restaurants near the seashore and not further back because they always have the best to offer. Come to think of it, it's relatively a bit pricier but I would say it's worth it.

Hmm.. I think it's the one activity that usually gets done all the time whenever I go somewhere. Anyways, I've gone island hopping before but it was Dhess' first time in Boracay so it's worth another shot. Of course we went to Puka beach and it was still fine as before.
Boracay Pubcrawl. It's one crazy experience! We met a lot of new friends and the founder of Pubcrawl himself, Oli - whom I met again here in Manila with my friends. Apparently he knows some people from Couch Surfing (whom I am recently involved in); so I was able to see him again here.
It's one of the best highlights in Boracay. In fact, it's the one that I won't forget. I'm the nicest, sweetest girl that you would meet but well, I also love to party. So bring it on! ^_^ For a small amount of 650php (it was discounted at that time), you will meet new friends from different places and countries; get free shots and hop on five different bars. Hmm I don't really have photos from it since I was sooooo... boozed. Anyways, it's a must try if you're a party seeker!
Okay, now here are some of our shots taken there.
