Revisiting New Washington

(December 20,2011)

After our short trip to Boracay, I went to revisit New Washington, Aklan together with Rezzmah and Krizel as we were taking a landtrip from Boracay to Pagadian City. New Washington, Aklan, tagged as “The Bountiful” municipality, is just 1-2 hour ride from Caticlan depending on your mode of transportation. Upon arriving in Aklan, we took the multicab that goes to New Washington, a 15 to 30 minute ride from Aklan.

Just briefly, I was able to visit New Washington, Aklan when I participated the 2009 National Youth Science Technology and Environmental Summer Camp hosted by the Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs Inc. When I was finalizing the itinerary of our trip in Boracay, I made sure that upon going home, we would be able to pass by New Washington.

We’ve met again, Boracay.

(December 18-19, 2011)

I remember it was 4 years ago when I last set foot in what is considered to be the finest beach in the Philippines. Back then, we only had 8 hours to enjoythe island but this time, we had 2 days to enjoy it.

Before hitting to Boracay, we were able to tour around Iloilo City. Around 4 am on December 18, we hopped in a van ride from Iloilo to Caticlan. It took us around 4 hours to reach Caticlan while it would take us around 6-7 hours if we had taken a bus ride.

Around 8 am that was when we finally had a glimpse of Caticlan Jetty Port, a place where you can say that you really are just near Boracay Island. Though tiring, we still had the time to have some photo opps.
