The best

The Crystal Sand was a hotel that everyone has to stay at least one night in Boracay. The interior of the outlook of the hotel is very western style and the staff there was extra friendly. I bet you can not find a place with a better staff and service. The hotel included American and Filippino style breakfast with shampoo and conditioner along with a soap. The great thing about this place is that if you call eariler about a week, you can request a pick-up from the airport and also can request a different sized bed. Over-all, its simply the best!

... Later, I meet the Filipino barman, John. He is a chirpy middle aged ex merchant seaman. We talk for a while about the local whiskey and rum, which has this wonderful coconut aroma. He says his break is soon, and mixes the local whiskey with soda and I try it. Then he gestures over my shoulder to a man walking by. It's his friend Andy and he invites him to try the whiskey too. Andy is a tanned, wrinkled, skinny German aged anywhere between 40 and 80. He is in shorts and a singlet. As ...

Planes, buses, boats and then party!

... the sea as we crossed over to the other side of Borocay island. I really wanted one because the sun was setting and I know it would have been so pretty but I couldn't bare to show my face again. I spent the ride across contemplating how to successfully get off the boat. I settled on the plan to sit and wait for everyone else to disembark, then I would ask for someone to carry the bag for me and follow them to save any further embarrassment. This worked well and I got ...

Missing the Mountain, amongst other things

... their, seemingly from the outside, simple lives involve.

Continued walking. Reached a point where there were lots of quad bikes parked up. I thought to myself this must be quad bike headquarters where you pick up/drop off the quads (I'd read about it being at the foot of the mountain the night before). I braced myself to really start hiking the mountain. One of the 'leaders' shouted out to me 'Where are you going Miss?'. I felt irritated by ...

... at the airport, accompanies you in the van to the ferry terminal, stays with you on the boat & then again in the tut tut van to your hotel when you arrive on Boracay Island. We would recommend them but if you don't want to book ahead there are plenty of guides at the airport ready to help you for a small fee :) Our hotel is Hotel Soffia & it is a little out of town, not on the main beach, but comes with an amazing view. It was $34 per night per person including breakfast. ...

... are several dive sites around the island with little underwater traffic. We dived the Yapak 2 reef and a plane wreck with only a couple of other divers and saw some pretty impressive marine life, clocking up three more dives each. Because the sea was choppy, we learned to do deep blue negative entries to get into the water. It's a bit 007, without dropping from a plane or parachute although there were sharks and the criminal genius Dr. Whittle who ...
