Boracay Escapade – For the Hopeless Romantics

Boracay has something to offer everyone. If you are a romantic by heart, congratulations, you have found heaven on earth.

長灘島是浪漫主義者的天堂。

沙灘、碧空、晚霞、海洋,

大自然在這裡建立了最浪漫的愛情磁場。

情苗如海浪,

纏纏綿綿,不斷地滋長。

Let the tantalizing sea breeze blow away your hat,

讓旖旎的海風頑皮地退去你遮陽的草帽,

…run through your hair,

輕輕地拂過你千條萬縷的煩惱絲,

TGY_2906_2

…caress your sun-kissed skin,

小心翼翼地撫摸你被太阳吻過的每寸肌膚,

…and lure you into the welcoming ocean of turquoise.

一步步地引誘你走向前方那片漫無邊際的蔚藍。

Make friend with a muscular yet gentle someone and let him show you the world on his back.

我騎在溫順而強壯的駿馬背上,

遙看遠方,

一步步走向近在咫尺的人間天堂。

Island hop to Crystal Cove Island, where the vast ocean extends to infinity in velvet sheets of vivid blue

如果想遠離長灘島主島的喧囂,去臨近的小島嶼來個幽靜的環島游吧。

The once sterile haven grown into loveliness under the adept hands of its locals, like magic touches with which an artist completes his favorite painting.

水晶灣名副其實,海水清澈如水晶。滿天滿海的藍,深深淺淺的藍,讓人恨不得縱身一跳,一頭扎進那一望無際的藍。

Stroll along the narrow paths – be welcomed by the distribution of tender foliage that surprises a heavenly view at every turn.

島上各個景點都有導遊“駐站”,他們是幫你講解、提東西、拍照、看管物品的親切好幫手。但如果不想被打擾,友好的打個招呼,示意一下,便可自行慢遊。

Paddle with the fishes on a Crystal Boat and watch their tails wiggle gleefully underneath you.

Nearer as you and your love one paddle towards the famous Boracay Keyhole (at Newcoast), nearer you are to the keyhole of each other’s hearts.

乘坐透明水晶船,與魚兒一起在水中嬉戲。划向著名的“鑰匙洞”,划近彼此心中的鑰匙洞。

Paraw Sail into the sunset.

乘風追逐晚霞,將羅曼蒂克主義進行到底。

Travelgraphy_3360_2

乘著海風,一路向西。

Travelgraphy_3385_2

Laze on the sail and watch the sun paint the sky with its glistening gown in gold as it gracefully take its bow and disappear into the horizon.

看著夕陽在天邊退去它金黃的晚裝,我的心,溶了,化了,與天海連成一片了。

And be accompanied by the Filipino version of Takeshi Kaneshiro   ;)

長灘島的陽光水手。認真的男人,最帥。

Seal the day with a kiss atop Mt Lubo, the highest peak of Boracay. Enjoy the panoramic view under your feet, and the love of your life in your arms.

At last, retire to your private villa at the Shangri-La Boracay Resort, and have the most secluded and romantic getaway framed on your gallery lane of perfect memories. (keep a lookout for review on the Shangri-La Boracay resort, coming up soon – follow this blog to subscribe or on Facebook to receive instant updates)

在Lubo山頂上俯瞰長灘島全景,與身邊的他/她深深一吻,將這浪漫的一天化為永恆。

最後的最後,回到香格里拉別墅,在寧靜與奢華中伸展疲憊的筋骨,為迎接更美好的第二天做準備。(請留意稍後有關長灘島住宿的博文)
