Our second day was off to a good start with a nice breakfast buffet from our hotel. Little did I know that it’s going to be a great day as I do another thing I’ve never done before.
As I seldom encounter a lap pool in Metro Manila, I opted to utilize the beautiful lap pool of the hotel. I badly needed to practice my strokes so our hotel’s pool is just perfect. I could have actually done an open water swim but as I had no one to watch over me in case I went too far, I opted for the safety of the pool. At least I can accurately measure my swimming distance!
By lunchtime we found ourselves exploring D’ Mall for some food. We really didn’t have anything in mind so we just went wind the first one that caught our attention: Hobbit Tavern. They had this meal named after Cavs and Golden State so we went in to try.
Later that afternoon, we were off to the other side of Boracay. Although I’ve seen the entire island from the sea in the past, I’ve never really set foot on Bulabog beach. And we didn’t go here just to look around—we’re here to fly!
We came to Bulabog beach to go parasailing. We actually just walked from white beach to get here as the island isn’t really that wide. And when we got to the place where we’re supposed to transfer to the boat where we’d actually do the parasailing, we were in for a surprise…
I definitely had a much different idea when we set off to go parasailing. I did not expect so many people are doing it! But despite that, it’s not actually a queue but more like a waiting area so it wasn’t that long before the boat that’s going to take us parasailing came along.
I admit I was a bit uneasy when it was my turn but my confidence grew exponentially when I was off the boat and felt all the harnesses were secure. This is probably the closest thing I could experience closest to flying!
