The weather on Boracay has taken a dramatic turn. The storms passed, and the rain and high winds have been replaced by calm seas and sunny skies. Let's hope the good weather holds! Tomorrow I head out for a boat trip around the island with snorkeling gear and lunch included (all for under $15). Love it!
I'll let the pictures and captions cover these last two days...
This blog began with my 9 week adventure through SE Asia in 2006. That initial leap into the unknown led to many other life-changing decisions, the largest of which involved moving overseas. After living in America for my entire life, I moved to Bangkok, Thailand on June 30, 2007.
The blog continues as I share about living in Thailand, and traveling, primarily within SE Asia.

Terri and GavinA group of 11 English teachers in China were vacationing in Boracay for a week. I met Terri & Gavin (the last 2 of their group to leave) on their last day (yesterday), and hung out with them all afternoon.
My Lounge ChairTypical hang out spot during the day in front of the Blue Mango Inn and Restaurant.
D'MallThe outdoor mall located near the center of White Beach (runs perpendicular to the beach). Lots of shops and restaurants.
Lemon CafeLunch today at Lemon Cafe in D'Mall. Very impressed with this lunch for about $9. Especially the tropical mango parfait dessert.
Map of BoracayWhite Beach (the most popular beach) is on the west, with Stations 1, 2 & 3 highlighted. Station 2 is the center of the action (D'Mall is here) with Station 1 to the north also pretty active. Station 3 is the most chilled out part of the beach. It's also more geared towards the budget/backpacker type of tourist due to the high number of small, budget type hotels/cottages. It takes about 30 minutes to walk from one end to the other.
The RoadRuns parallel to White Beach, but is a fair distance away from the beach. It's narrow and has very few full sized vehicles.
