Awesome Weekend

In Travelling on August 31, 2011 at 8:15 am

My weekend started last Friday, August 26. 6 of us went to San Jose Antique to pick up our friend, Eden. She works at a bank there.

We left Iloilo City at around 5 pm. It was raining and all but we were determined to go to Boracay via Culasi. It’s a different route. Hmm let just say that were adventurous that way.

At around 6 pm, there was a landslide somewhere in Antique. The damage was bad as vehicles could not get through it. We were left with no choice but to walk in the damaged area and ride on the next bus. (Buses going to Iloilo could not get through in the same way that buses going to Antique could not get through as well.)

Other than the Ceres Liner, there are also vans for hire going to and fro. The people in this vans made us uncomfortable in the Ceres. We walked slow because of our bags and we were almost left by the Ceres which is unfair because we were the original passengers with the tickets and all.

It was raining from Iloilo to antique up to our first day in Boracay. Our weekend is long, wet and filled with a lot of fun.
