First view

Our first few hours in Boracay were brutal. Our tickets were for the airport on the other side of the island which resulted in a extra hour ride through a curvy road in an overly cold air con pumped van. We got to the other airport, paid some terminal fees, found our guide, rode a 15 minute boat and checked into our hotel. Our hotel was shit. We booked 8 nights online at a place called FRIENDZ resort. My recommendation to anyone who reads this site and plans a trip to Boracay, Philippines is to avoid this place. Our room was expensive and didn't include air con like we had thought. Additionally there was a rooster right outside our door which crowed steadily from 3-6 am. We were a little flustered and tired, and sweaty. Annie said this on the walk to the beach (and I quote) "This better all be worth it!"

Then we saw this:

And it didn't matter what problems we had before. We both stood there just looking out at the beach front for a good 2 minutes before we said anything. HALLELUJAH was resonating in my mind. We had found paradise!!!!!!!!!!
