This Family Chose to Make Boracay Their New Home

What was supposed to be a short 9-day vacation, from December 25, 2020 to January 2, 2021, turned into a more permanent stay as the Larrañaga family discovered the calm and peace they always craved in Boracay. Bianca, together with her husband Mikel and their 3-year old son Xabier, have been staying in the island for over half a year now and it has been a beautiful respite from their busy lives in Manila.

This Family Chose to Make Boracay Their New Home

This family has always loved visiting Boracay for vacations. Bianca and Mikel even got married there in 2016! As a family, one of their most favorite bonding activities is traveling. In fact, Bianca and Mikel also run their own business that specializes in travel and everyday essentials. However, since quarantine started last year, they’ve been confined within the walls of their house much like the rest of us. Since their business is involved in the travel sector, they were faced with many problems to overcome in order to stay afloat and adapt.

When quarantine measures were a bit relaxed during the latter part of 2020, they decided to take the opportunity of going on a trip to Boracay for a breather. Bianca tells us that from the moment they landed, her son’s face lit up with pure joy.

(Quote for layout) “The look on my son’s face, you can’t put a price on it. He was so happy. He was running around. He was climbing trees. He was swimming. He was free to run barefoot! He was just so happy.”

Bianca then met another family from Manila who had already been staying in Boracay for a couple of months, that’s when she entertained the idea of doing the same thing. “I realized there are a lot of apartments here for longterm stay. We started checking out apartments. Our lease is until next year. We locked in the place already. We’re taking it six months at a time,” says Bianca.

Boracay has all the establishments they need to keep running their business remotely and to support their needs – banks, parcel services, schools, gyms, and the like. But beyond the necessities, living by the beach has made them realize what is truly essential for their family.

Bianca shares what Boracay has taught her so far. Read on!
