There are boats, then there are banana boats. You can have a banana boat ride in a lot of places, but there’s only one Boracay banana boat ride. This one holds a special place in our hearts because Boracay was our first banana boat ride ever, back when the terms “film” and “roll” were still relevant to photography. Even until today, Boracay exudes a certain aura that blankets the entire place, infusing every soul within its island vibe that bumps up the adrenaline level. Heck, even zombies will come alive in Boracay. Now, let’s check this photo by Aiza Bacani (check her account in Instagram, @aizabacs). Here she is, with that ear-to-ear smile (wait, how do you call a smile, 100 times over?). We would have wanted to take our photo just like that, but we always end up like the lady at her back. All we do is grab that banana boat handle and hold on for dear life. Ah, brings back memories of extreme Boracay fun. One of the reasons why we take time to update the Daily Photos.

It is said that mankind knows more about the outer space than earth’s ocean. Perhaps this mystery is the reason why we love images of the underwater world. Just the images, though, because we can’t really venture much below surface. Not with scuba diving; much more with free diving. Four seconds or so after submerging, the gag reflex takes over. We can never be graceful underwater, we thought. That’s why we remain in awe with beautiful sea photos like this graceful freedive in Palawan‘s Siete Pecados — courtesy of the lovely Ferina Santos (ferinasantos), a surfer and a diver (and, judging by the ease by which she glides underwater, perhaps a mermaid). Here’s the photo (click photo to enlarge): Continue reading Photo of the Day: Freedivers and Mermaids
Beach, sun and sand — the perfect combination of these elements makes Boracay a world-famous beach destination. And if the beach is not enough, Boracay boasts of endless activities to occupy each precious second tourists spend on the island-paradise. Diving and parasailing are only a few of these activities, some of which you could see in our post on why we still love Boracay. But don’t you know that you can live your childhood dream of becoming a mermaid? Continue reading When in Boracay: Be a Mermaid!
