Weekend Getaway: Travel Missions

Weekend Getaway isn’t only about vacation and the good life. All Weekend Warriors must complete three Travel Missions for them to know what it is like to be a native/local of the destination they are visiting. If the warriors fail, they will go home and will leave the vacation unfinished. BUT if they get to complete all travel missions, big prizes await them. As for us, 20K worth of shopping spree courtesy of Blued and hotel accommodation by White Knight Hotel Intramuros made the whole trip a lot more exciting. Yey!

Then they arrived and filming started. Still with no knowledge of our destination, I pretended to be so sleepy while on our way to wherever when in reality, I was really anxious and nervous.

And so I closed my eyes and played sleep. Then I heard this whisper, “Palalabs, papunta tayo ng Terminal 3.” And that kicked off our epic vacation, the one I will surely remember until my last breathe.
