Liberty Just in Case

A Dialogue for the September 12th World

Greetings from Boracay

Posted by Mark on January 22, 2007

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh Boracay!

With apologizes to John Milton, Paradise FOUND. This is my third trip to this idyllic island, and I have to say- it’s a drug. I arrived today…after having made my first visit to Subic Bay.

Subic Bay, once the rocking hotspot for many American servicemen, is today- nothing more than a placid stop along Luzon’s western coast. But getting there? OMG! An absolute exercise in driving skills- that rival any NASCAR circuit event. To venture out in Luzon to places like Subic, you must navigate through- and out of- Manila. And Manila is uh…well…Manila is a panic.

Think: NO RULES.

Manila traffic is a cacophony of horns, shouts, and screeching tires with an endless amount of carbon monoxide- topped off with a complete disregard for civilized etiquette. But somehow I managed to make it to Subic Bay and back…UNSCATHED and on a plane to Boracay (Bor-ROCK-i!)

If you ever make it to the Philippines….head straight to Boracay. Should I not make it back to the United States- trust me….start your SEARCH HERE! Excuse me…uh….waitress, another San Miguel please….

Vacations go by TOO FAST.
