Sun, sand, and coffee!

I had my first Boracay trip this month --- thanks to the convincing powers of a dear friend. :) Bora was not really at the top of my list of travel destinations for this year. It’s basically because of two reasons: 1) I think it’s too commercialized 2) it’s crowded.

I badly needed a break too so I decided to go… and I’m glad I did. T’was fun walking in the long stretch of white sand on a weekday!

One morning, while walking, we saw a signage for cellphone repair services and had a good laugh at it. The arrow is pointing to the sea --- so in case your phone got wet or something, you have to swim first to Caticlan to have it fixed. :) Just kidding… 

We stayed at the Grand Boracay Resort. It’s a cozy, simple-yet-classy triple A rated hotel located at the heart of D’Mall, Station 2. (Sidenote: HBO aired Gremlins 2 thrice during our stay there. I love Gizmo!)

Come to think of it, had Bora not been that commercialized, I might not be able to enjoy my favorite drink while sitting on the powdery white beach sand.

The sun + white sand + a tall espresso java chip frappuccino = a perfect beach bumming experience!


Now, here’s my share of the Bora sunset… enjoy!

To my travel buddies, let’s schedule another trip to Bora! :)

Ros Edralin said...

hi Laarni, yeah I believe so... Bora activities are all-year-round so for as long as the weather's great, go go go! :)

I can still hear Gizmo humming in my head...LOL. Glad you joined this kalad trip with me. You were such a sport for a Bora first timer! Too bad we weren't able to do much but bum around :-p

Ros Edralin said...

Zsashi - i heart beach bumming :) we'll try other activities next time when our other kalad friends join us. imagine if it was just you and me trying the water activities... well, good luck banana boat! LOL.

I have the same reasons for not being able to visit this place yet but I'm not closing doors....

Starbucks on the beach sounds a good idea. ;)

Ros Edralin said...

@peenkfrik - yup, you should go there sometime. just avoid the peak season.... unless you want to join the crowd :) they say that Bora has one of the best sunsets in the world.
