Every time I travel, I always follow a very simple guiding principle: eat what the locals eat, do what the locals do. This way I get to experience a place in a more authentic way.
Just like when I was in General Santos City for example, the best place to get a bowl piping hot sinigang na tuna is right at the city’s public market. And I would always prefer pedicab, tricycle or habal habal over taxi or vans.
Do you know that there’s actually a website now that lists down various activities offered by the locals to travelers? Sounds interesting, right?
Just recently I was invited by Lenovo at an exclusive Lenovo Yoga Tablet 18 hour challenge. There were only three of us in the challenge: Jonel Uy of LetsgoSago.net, Ferds Decena of Ironwulf.net and me.
I have been to Capiz twice. But the last time I was in this part of Western Visayas was in 2009 when Roxas City, known to for its moniker as the Seafood Capital of the Philippines, hosted the Western Visayas Tourism Assembly.
There were some attempts on my part, go return to Roxas, but never pushed through. Then last month, i was scheduled to go to Antique. Funny thing is, Roxas, Capiz was originally not part of the plan, but yeah, it pushed through!
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.
