It's still hard to believe that a place like Boracay exists on our doorstep here in the Philippines. When my best friend first told me she was planning a trip to Manila, white sand haven Boracay was at the top of our list. Our Aussie upbringing has left salt water running through our veins and an obsession with sitting in a pool of sweat trying to get that gorgeous brown skin that morenas are gifted with. The ocean's aqua, cyan and turquoise hues extended through to my outfit for the plane ride home as a beach farewell always leaves me feeling a little, well, blue.
