yes, it's true, the Philippines is officially our "most-visited" destination. several reasons for this:
1) flights are cheap to Manila
2) life is cheap when you are there
3) there's a huge ultimate scene and, therefore, lots of tournaments
trip 1: chinese new year
Coron is gorgeous. it's a small town and not highly built up. we tried scuba diving, did a lot of snorkeling, and rented a boat to "island hop" around to different sites. truly one of the most fun vacations i've had in a fairly remote area!
trip 2: my birthday!
Boracay Island - home of the white beach
Boracay is the same as always: white sand, clear waters, ultimate, great restaurants and bars. The tournament was fantastic, and we had a great group of friends to hang out with post-games. Boracay is a great place for "developed" vacations - almost anything is available.
pictures are on facebook. i find pictures on blogspot too difficult to deal with. sorry!
