Memories of Boracay

Beginning last April 26, the Philippines’ world famous island of Boracay was shut down. For the 1st time it became out of reach to tourists, which numbered up to 2 million in 2017 alone.

Personally, I have never thought of Boracay being closed and off limits to Boracay non-residents. But well it happened. The Philippine government says that this is to rehabilitate the island.

I have been to the island only twice. Once in 2005 with my siblings and then in 2016 accompanied by a friend after I ran a training in Kalibo on culture and outreach work.

Boracay island has white powdery sand. The stretch of blue sea and sky is, of course, refreshing to a nature lover like me. Boracay reminds me really of Bohol’s own share of pristine white sand beaches and yes, blue sea and sky  which I frequently enjoyed, being born and raised in Bohol. By the way, my hubby and I visited Bohol just this May and we had the opportunity to stay at Hennan Resort in Alona, Panglao together with my siblings. That would have to be a separate blog post 🙂

Well, I look forward to seeing a beautiful and restored Boracay again after the 6-month cleanup. Hope to go back with my hubby next time 🙂
