We came to visit Boracay during lean season and I thought we'd have the island to ourselves because, well, it's lean season. This was my first time and I was stupid enough to think that the country's number 1 tourist spot would be crowd-less on the last week of September. But the scene in Caticlan airport showed otherwise. It didn't sink in to me that people from all over the world have heard about Boracay through various media until we reached the jetty port and boy was it pretty crowded. I checked my calendar after asking myself, is it summer yet?
