INTROVERT AT SEA: WHAT TO DO IN BORACAY IF YOU'RE NOT INTO PARTYING

One of the world’s biggest lies is that introverts hate people. Medically speaking, introversion is “the act of directing one’s attention toward or getting gratification from one’s own interests, thoughts, and feelings.” However, the satisfaction of being alone doesn’t mean that an introvert is antisocial. As a matter of fact, many Boracay backpackers who make new friends on the road are introverts. They can hang out with a few people, even spend hours conversing about things of mutual interest, but will need to recharge in solitude after.

SURE-FIRE HITS TO MAKE YOUR BORACAY WEDDING BUFFET ONE FOR THE AGES

What should you consider when planning your wedding menu? First, check Boracay wedding venues that allow outside catering because some hotels only allow their food in their function halls. Then, set a budget for each guest. This will help you decide between a sit-down dinner and a buffet. Next, list down your guests to get an idea of the type of food that suit most of the people. Your menu should also fit your wedding theme. A beach wedding menu typically consists of seafood, fruits and fresh veggies. Even the cocktails are refreshingly summer-inspired.  Meticulous planning is your ultimate insurance against beach wedding mishaps.

PSYCHOLOGY-PROVEN WAYS ON HOW TO MAKE THE BEST TRAVEL BUDDIES ON THE ROAD

A solo travel is more than a leisure activity. It is a key to holistic wellness. Traveling alone has been proven to have mental health benefits such as reducing stress and relieving emotional pain. Backpacking to a beach and other water forms is also good for the physical health. Some of the benefits of spending time in Boracay include faster healing of cuts and sores and improvement of joint-pain symptoms.

Hitting the road on your own is an amazing opportunity to meet new people. It doesn’t matter if you’re naturally shy. If you’re traveling alone, you’d need to ask for directions, recommendations for restaurants, and assistance during mishaps. These events can jump-start a conversation, and perhaps a meaningful friendship.
