Philippines



In February 2004 I went to the Philippines with Ariel. We spent a few days in Puerto Galera, including White Beach and Sabang, before going to Boracay for a week. We continued to Iloilo and Guimaras before returning for a day in Manila. By the end we were getting a little tired of cheapie transportation on bad roads and flew back to Manila. There we had the ultimate fate: on-board Filipino karaoke.

If You Go: Boracay
I liked Boracay a lot. It's not a place for nightlife and the water is coolish in February, but the little island is easy-going and the food and hotel choices are plentiful and cheap. It still stands as the best sunsets I've ever seen in my life.
