I happily spent the first day of May in the shores of Boracay with my closest friends, and it was such an unforgettable experience! This was my first out-of-town trip with college friends, and I loved every minute of it! How I wish the trip would've lasted longer! When we arrived, we were surprised by the horrendous amount of seaweed in the water (see photos). From what I remember, they weren't this many when I last went there.
The island is becoming more and more polluted as time goes by. Some people prefer going to Palawan these days because of the clearer waters and the more peaceful surroundings. Despite the pollution, the noise and all that, Boracay is still pretty amazing. I enjoyed walking on the fine, white sands and staring into the horizon. And when the sun sets, that's when all the craziness starts. The entire island goes into party mode!
Shoutout to Banana Peel for sending me slippers from their newest collections and for the exciting paraw ride!
