I work from home and I seldom go out and travel. I only do it whenever one of my cousins come home from abroad where they work. It doesn’t happen often, maybe like, only once or twice a year. Since I don’t have any co-workers, sometimes I don’t get to meet a lot of new people. So when a friend invites me to go travel, most of the time, I say yes, even though that means I get to hang out with people I haven’t met yet. An introvert part of me sometimes thinks that I might not enjoy it but how can I know if I won’t experience it? And guess what? Most of the time I’m thankful I said yes because I did have a lot of fun. Just like this road trip.
A day before the adventure, my two high school friends and I met and roamed around the city, having our mini road trip as well. One of them introduced us to her friend which we haven’t met yet. We toured her around Iloilo City. Unfortunately, my best friend couldn’t come with us on the road trip cos she was very busy. That’s okay, though.
You probably know where we headed because of the white sand. You guessed it right: It’s Boracay! It’s just 4 hours away from Iloilo. My friend drove us there, we left at around 3 am. I was asleep most of the time.
I only know one out of 6 girls here. She’s my friend from high school and she invited some of her friends, her sister-in-law and her sister. Most of us only met for the first time but we bonded like we’ve known each other for so long.
I guess you could say that I really enjoyed taking photos. After we ate lunch, we swam, talk, and ate taho.
It was so fun that night. We bar hopped outdoors and drank. It was just light drinks but OMG, I haven’t drunk 7 bottles in a night! That was a record breaker (at least for myself lol). I don’t always drink, so I’m pretty surprised at myself. We ended up going back to our room at 3 am. I was very tipsy, but I’m still conscious. I’m glad I didn’t puke but I was very very tired. After walking down the beach, we went to sleep right away. Tomorrow is another day.
From Boracay, we traveled to Antique. It was a long ride. Kudos to my friend who drove us. I don’t know how she did it cos I was very very tired from last night. She’s an excellent driver, though and her sister-in-law took the wheel from time to time. The view going there was amazing! I wasn’t able to photograph it, unfortunately.
We went to Tibiao, Antique. I have gone there twice already but I admit, the place still amazes me! For the first time, I did water rafting with them and it was so fun. I wish I had a GoPro so you can see the view while sitting on that round lifesaver. It was so beautiful! Parts of the river has fast currents so there’s an adrenaline rush going on. There were parts when the water was calm and you get the peaceful feeling that you’re truly one with nature. Imagine sitting there, looking up to the sky seeing mountains and water. So relaxing.
We hopped on the car after that and traveled back to Iloilo City. It was a long ride. I went home at 10 pm. I’m looking foraward to our next trip. Hopefully, it would be Davao. I cannot wait!
