Ya Salaam, she's alive! And back from Boracay!!!

After a load of emails asking about my blog, I've decided to update the damn thing. Truth be told, I'm extremely busy...namely due to a crap schedule I have for work, but hopefully it will be changing soon.

After six months of non-stop work with ridiculous hours, I took a vacation to the Philippines...to Boracay island to be exact. It's a little bit of an effort to get there, but once experiencing those turquoise waters and power white sands it's well worth the travel time. Only access to the beach is by little jetty boats, so you have to fly into the nearest town of Caticlan after arriving in Manila. From Caticlan you can take the jetty boat. Another way to reach the island is to again first fly into Manila, then fly to Calibo and then take a two hour bus ride to Caticlan where you can finally get the jetty taking you to Boracay Island.

Boracay is boasts powder white sand beaches and crystal clear waters that take on an amazing turquoise color in the sun. The island is quite touristy but the people are laid back and friendly. The San Miguel beer is flowing; beach massages are plentiful; and life seems to come to a standstill while you enjoy one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world.
