Twenty-Freaking-Five and Alive! The Perfect Weekend, Boracay, Philippines

Like a lot of Filipinos my age I've been to Boracay a couple of times, but I've never been compelled to write about the place - what else was there to say? I figured though that everyone's got a Bora story to share, so I might as well post mine as well.

This Bora Story is called The Perfect Weekend, and it happened a week or two after my Macau-Hong Kong trip and my epic bungee jump experience. One thing I had learned from my previous backpacking and whirlwind travel adventures was that "travel" and "vacation" are not the same thing - they might even be the opposite of each other. Traveling is fulfilling and can be immensely meaningful for sure, but with the desire to explore and discover strange new places doesn't come a lot of time to just...chill.

Since graduating from college I've done my fair share of traveling, but I must say that legitimate vacations have been few and far between. And our perfect weekend in Bora was probably the mother of all vacations.

We didn't do much during The Perfect Weekend, really: we strolled along the beach, hung out by the pool, went parasailing, partied a bit, ate a lot, did a little bit of shopping. Which was exactly the point of the trip - to do nothing, and to just relax.

Because sometimes, travelers need to get away on vacation too. :)

It threatened to rain a couple of times...

...but mostly it was sunny and perfect!

Nothing says "relax" better than deck chairs by the pool

"Because sometimes, travelers need to get away on vacation too."

Sometimes after an arduous backpacking adventure, I need a vacation to recover...

Looks great! I love your point, "even traveler's need a vacation." Looking forward to a few days of vacation in HK next week!

Happy birthday, belated. :)

Sometimes I take vacations between travels. When I am on the road for a long time, I just pause somewhere for a few days to relax. Gives me best of both worlds.
