It’s not really bad to try out something new from time time. Especially if we get to try death-defying activities. Wait. Not really death defying. I was just exaggerating on that part. But trying out adrenaline pumping activities once in a while is a perfect way to kill the monster called “Monotony” and that monster sometimes breeds offsprings called “boredom”
Haha enough with the words.
And to kill those monsters living deep inside of me, off we went to the town of Maitum in Sarangani province Philippines to test our courage, through the white water tubing.

It’s the last day of our tour in Antique and I am pretty much excited to try new stuff while here! We we up a little early again, for our coffee, and breakfast of corned beef and sunny side up. It is our last day in Antique and we made sure to save the best for last!
After breakfast, we went to the Tribal Adventures facility to try the whitewater kayak experience. I have tried the whitewater radfting in Davao before So more or less I have an idea of what to expect.
And before we go out in the river, we had our safety briefing first. Tribal Adventures has been operating the whitewater kayak in Tibiao for quite some time now, but it is only recently that it came into spotlight when Katahum Tours started to market this activity as part of their tour product.

Fact: I grew up in Bacolod City in the Province of Negros Occidental, and oveer the years, I was able to explore the other Provinces of Western Visayas, namely: Iloilo, Guimaras, Aklan Capix, except for one: Antique.
I did made several attempts to cross the border between San Jaquin Iloilo going to Anini-y Antique but nothing came it. All plans failed.
Until finally, last month, I received a message if I wanted to join the Antique Heritage Tour. Hmmmm, Interesting!
It’s the second day of our Media Familiarization Tour sponsored by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA).
We woke up a little bit early and traveled from Sorsogon City to the town of Matnog, Sorsogon.
Long before, I know knew Matnog as a port town. This is where the bus from mainland Luzon bound for Visayas gets loaded to RORO vessels and travel to Allen Samar. Matnog
But it was only recently that I discovered that Matnog also has its own charms. Little did I know that it has also its own fair share of paradise. A paradise just waiting to be discovered.
