“Don’t you ever get tired of it?”
The worried faces of those who have been overwhelmed by being away from home due to long stints of travel, stare at me in disbelief as I explain my answer. Much to everyones surprise, traveling doesn’t get exhausting to me, and I don’t crave “my normal life/routine” after weeks on the road. This is not because I’m disconnected or completely delusional, it’s is because I have mastered the art of being away from home.
There are two ways I avoid the headache of being on the road. The first is to try and infiltrate normal routines into my travel days that most people wouldn’t do. Trying to engage in “normal” activities which could range from joining a neighborhood yoga class to picking up a few things at a local farmers market. The second method to ease always being away, is to try and stay in places that are comfortable, convenient, and essentially feel like home.
Under the Stars Luxury Apartments, in Boracay Philippines was one of those places for me. A comfortable living space that felt private, personalized, and not overly stuffy. The modern amenities, sprawling kitchen, and chic outdoor balcony overlooking the beach create a perfect landing pad for individuals, families, and couples alike.
From the ceiling drawn rain showers to the in-bed televisions, there are plenty of thoughtful details and elements to pamper even the pickiest of travelers. Yet the location is slightly off the beaten path and really allows you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy parts of Boracay.
There’s also an amazing option to hire a chef to take the feeling of home one step further, really easing your mind while taking the pressure off. There is something about home-cooked meals shared across a dining room table that helps bring continuity and familiarity to a vacation on a far off island. Under the Stars is the type of accommodation that allows you to work, live, and relax in an environment that truly feels like a home away from home.
