It’s been fun. We’re in the home stretch now.
Part 1: Aklan
05:00 – First one up. Get ready for the airport.
05:30 – Everyone else wakes up. Still dark out. Still fresh from last night’s ‘what the fuck’ moment, I go outside for my clothes.
05:31 – Still alive. Squeezing everything into by bag. I don’t remember bringing this much stuff.
06:59 – More last-minute packing. No time for breakfast. Say our goodbyes to the dogs.
07:00 – Thanks, Mrs. Salazar. Van takes off.
07:30 – Kalibo Airport. Breakfast of champions: coffee and Cheetos.
08:00 – Time to go. ‘Til next time, Aklan.
Part 2: Manila
09:05 – Plane lands. Pilot announces delayed parking. No worries.
09:20 – We’ve been on the tarmac for 15 minutes now. Getting antsy. A couple of rows away, a baby is crying. Auditory relief c/o Led Zeppelin.
09:35 – Pilot finally parks the plane and we get off. Where the hell’s the bathroom?
09:51 – Looking for a cab that won’t rob us with ridiculous rates. Lousy crooks. Finally find one after 10 minutes.
09:35 – AJ gets off first at Magallanes.
11:09 – Dani’s condo. Drop off our stuff and grab lunch. Riza heads to the mall for some things.
11:20 – Lunch at Burger King. Riza joins us a few minutes later.
11:43 – Siesta time at Dani’s.
12:20 – Con, Riza, and I cab it to the office.
12:43 – Clock into work. Back to the trenches.
Thanks for following the cold, crazy fun of our five-day R & R (Thanks, Con and Riza, for helping me put this together). For being so patient, please enjoy this complimentary video of our Boracay stay:
