I have a friend who kept on going to Boracay as if it’s just a regular destination. She said that since I’m a travel blogger, I should feature Boracay in my blog one of these days. I said I would if I could.
Boracay, as they always say, is the ultimate destination for adventure and relaxation.
Now I have a possibility to go on a free vacation in this island paradise through the South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR) and Microtel Inns Suites Boracay Bloggers’ Tour. The chance to go along with other travel bloggers is also tempting because of having the opportunity to meet and bond with people who share the same interest for travel blogging.
I’m a hyperactive person who loves to travel and exudes energy all the time. For me, Boracay is the ultimate place to be. Below is my entry to SEAIR & Microtel Boracay Bloggers’ Tour for a chance to go on a vacation to this paradise.
I’ve been to Different Places, But I’ve never been to Boracay
I’ve been dragged by a wakeboard cable wire in Naga, Camarines Sur.
But I’ve never been dragged to Boracay .
I’ve zip lined and climbed a wall in Balamban, Cebu.
But I haven’t zipped and wall-climbed in Boracay.
I’ve ridden the waves even for a split second in Siargao.
But I’ve never touched the waves of Boracay.
I’ve lain on the bike lane of UP Diliman.
But I’ve never lain on the sands of Boracay.
I’ve eaten a whole bunch of durian in Davao.
But I’ve never eaten in Boracay.
I’ve learned how to snorkel, dive and back flip in the waters of Mactan.
And I want to learn something new in Boracay.
I’ve jumped off a cliff and also off a waterfalls in Malapascua and Siquijor.
But I’ve never jumped off Ariel’s Point in Boracay.
I’ve skimmed on the waters of Argao, Cebu.
But I haven’t skimmed in Boracay.
I’ve walked around 300 steps and hiked a shrine in Valencia, Negros Oriental.
But I’ve never stepped in Boracay.
I’ve climbed on top of a famous rock in Apo Island, Negros.
But I’ve never climbed in Boracay.
I’ve trekked my way up the Taal Volcano in Batangas.
But I’ve never trekked the island of Boracay.
I’ve tried kayaking and I’ve been washed away on the shores of Sumilon Island.
But I’ve never kayaked nor have I been washed away on the shores of Boracay.
I’ve braved the crowd of Manila.
But I haven’t met the crowd of Boracay.
I’ve been to a number of places around the country and I’ve had a number of adventures in the process of exploring. Given all the destinations that I’ve been to, it’s strange that I’ve never been to the ultimate beach destination in the Philippines — Boracay.
So what will I do for you to send me to Boracay?
I’ll wear a snake around my neck, I’ll shave my head.
Just send me to Boracay!
Want me to do a side stand, a yoga stand or even with no hands? I’ll do it!
Just send me to Boracay!
Given all the things I’ve done, doesn’t this show how desperate I am just to go to Boracay?
I don’t know how many times I’ve made a fool of myself in various places in the Philippines. But I know that when I’ll be able to visit Boracay, I’ll still continue to make a fool of myself – I’ll even enjoy it too.
UPDATE as of August 20, 2010:
This entry was updated due to a comment made by one of my readers saying:
PLEASE… NOT BORA. — iamjenniya
I didn’t know the reason for the comment until I found some information online.
I stumbled upon a page article about calling the island ‘Boracay’, not Bora. (click here to read the article). The write-up talked about how to properly call the island. I understand the cause and in my support, I’ve updated the terms ‘Bora’ to ‘Boracay’ in this blog entry. I’m resending this entry as well to SEAIR’s Facebook FanPage.
Update: Please refer to this article: Boracay is not Bora for more information as the link I provided is already dead.
