Confession: I am not a beach loving person. While Ryan and Mai, my two closest friends, dream of spending their summer visiting the beach – Boracay, Palawan, Batangas etc., I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything if I don’t get to do so.
Also, I always find it challenging to pack light. If budget was of no concern to me at all, you betcha I’d have a check in luggage. I always have a big bag because I like having the space where I can possibly squeeze all that I might need for vacation in it! Actually, even when in the city, I like carrying a big bag.

We also partied the night away in Boracay at the Epic 2017 Music Festival. After all, when in Boracay, you party!
In search of a place to have lunch on Thursday, we visited Diniwid Beach where Spider House was located. The view was amazing that’s for sure! A whole lot of foreigners hung out around the area too.
Some of the most interesting things that happened to us in Boracay:
We witnessed a fire dance show while having dinner at Red Coconut.
We were given Beach Hut beach balls when we bought drinks at Beach Hut Bar and we ended up playing Dodge Ball by the beach.
I’m not very good at it. I was usually the first to get hit.
We took home those beach balls and the the Beach Hut plastic cup we drank in as souvenirs of our trip.
On our way back from Diniwid Beach, we found this tricycle that offered a free ride to folks. The only condition was to buy C2 from them. Our tricycle ride to Diniwid cost us Php150. At Php25 each for the C2, we saved Php50. Also, Ver loved C2! It was her go-to drink while we were in Boracay. We got to try their newest flavor, Melon. Quite good. But I still prefer their Apple flavor.
Lastly, at Pucca beach, we met Zac, a cute American guy who was enjoying his alone time flying a drone around the island. Just as we were about to leave, I mustered the courage to talk to him. He said he was from Guam but originally from Atlanta and it was his first time in Boracay. I wish I asked him out to dinner or drinks with us when he shared that he had no plans just yet that night. But I chickened out so after our brief conversation, we said goodbye.
