... the toilet before the van started. Then halfway along the driver starts to slow down and is checking in his wing mirrors. He pulls over. Gets out. Tells us all to get out. I slide out the front seat and straight into a massive great dirty puddle. In my favourite (white) sandals. I pretend it didn't happen to stop myself from being annoyed. There's a massive piece of metal stuck in the back passenger side tyre. He quickly jacks ...
... the most genuine man that we have met on this trip so far. It is nice to meet people like him every once in a while along our journey. Once again, we were so lucky to o have found such a gem of a resort to stay at. After Jackie finished eating her soup (which was actually quite tasty, and the only real food that she has eaten in the last 4-5 days) our resort owner made sure to give us all of the information that we needed and directions to the clinic. ...
... I ask Kuya why? then he told us that even a small particle from a cotton fabric can cause obstruction to the holes from where the water comes in and out. It is a combination of fresh water and a sea water.

... harms way, but I know that people like us will not be there every time to help out, and what happens then is what is really sobering.

TravelPod Member ReviewsFat Jimmy's Resort Boracay
Great family orientated place, myself and 2 friends stayed at fat Jimmys over Christmas 2011/2012 and had a great stay...
Ivone was great, got us breakfast every morning and it was included in the price all for like £4 a night....couldnt ask for better. Plus it was great being able to watch a nice happy filipino family celebrate their Christmas eve.. Was quite heart warming considering my friends and I were spending Christmas away from our own families.
Location is just slightly behind all the main stuff on station too, so if any other person complains about it, well my advice, get off your arse and walk less than 5 mins and you'l be rewarded with that white sandy beach.
Granted tis probably is not the best location for the slightly older or those with walking disabilities as the path to the beach is quite narrow and often crowded with passing bikes.
Only negative was the inital greeting as we got off the pedicab thing as there was loads of begging children near the entrance which can be very off putting.
