Face It, Paradise Sucks
Published on June 02, 2010
Yup. One week- let alone 2 weeks- of doing nothing can be boring. But a day of that can be relaxing. If you have basic snorkeling gear( I alwas carry my mask if I know there's a chance I spend a day in paradise) you can usually be busy for hours. Throw in a few strolls along the beach and you're all set for at least 2 days or maybe 3...
just my two cents
I think you would have had a lot better time if you would of been in a different mind-set. Those type of vacations need to be supplemented with heavy doses of ganja in order to enjoy the 'boringness' of paradise?
I'm the same - not a big fan of the lazing-around-for-a-week holiday. But don't mind a wee day or two :)
I like those kinda vacations for short-term. I think it also depends on where you live...a week in hot Mexico is pure blissful escape from a hellish winter in Canada. But yeah, not really the "authentic" travel experience most people go for.
I suppose it's what you make of it...I wrote about my resort vacation here: http://www.candicedoestheworld.com/2010/01/10-rea... Shameless self plug. Woooo.
Definitely not a shot at Boracay... It's the general idea of what the masses think is 'paradise' that I could blow off. Three years! You must be an amazing scuba diver!
