Adventures of Aci Girl was invited to be part of Team Eatgetaway for an all bloggers team to participate in the Partakan Festival's Amazing Ride Competition. The event took place at the farthest part of Luzon, at Sta. Ana, Cagayan.

I'm always up for new adventures, Lez do thiz! 
There's no mountain, no valley - No time, no space - walang makakapgil saken lol:P

Partakan Festival 2017 is brought to you by ROPALI Motorcycles and Honda Philippines Inc. together with Kawasaki Motor Philippines, Yamaha Motor Philippines, Suzuki Philippines as major sponsors. The said festival is actually in its fourth year and they just got getting better.

So, back to the Amazing Ride Challenge. Team Eatgetaway is all set for the road trip going to Sta. Ana Cagayan. Amazing Ride Challenge is more like that popular reality show on tv titled Amazing Race. Having the same format each team needs to race their way to the finish line with pit stops and tasks along the way. Now, I'm starting to have self-doubts. What challenges are in line? Is it buwis buhay? Kakain ng eeky-eeky things? Okay, Stop... no more over thinking.

Let me Introduce to you our Team

Team #EatGetaway is an all male boy band from the Philippines. Just kidding! #EatGetaway is more like a barkadahan of this three. Enzo Luna, Azrael Coladilla and Ted Claudio derived from the first letter of their nicknames plus the word getaway that's what they really good at... Ang Gumala, Kumain, Mag-Blog, Matulog then Repeat.

I will try my very best to summarize the ganaps and all. Prior to Ropali Cabanatuan there are 2 more pitstops along the way. But sadly there's no one there. So officially, this is our first pitstop for the amazing ride challenge. Team 081 yoh!

With all that body aches due to the longest ride of my life. I badly need some shut eye - a decently amount of sleep and hopefully a comfy bed. So the moment we arrived at our villa in Cagayan Leisure and Holiday Resorts, Dive agad sa bed!.

I want to sleep a little bit more but DaddyO wakes me up to grab some breakfast. I was about to say no, but then realized I have no idea what today's activities were lined up for us so it's better to be prepared and be armed and loaded with carbs :P After that quick breakfast, SleepMode ulit :P

Feeling so proud for my fellow FHO (Filipina Home bakers Online) Eloi, Super Small World, Magkatabi na pala tayo sa beach di pa naten alam (^.^,) Congrats Team Wapog! P.s super benta ng drone shots nyo.

Sadly, I wasn't able to witness the other happenings that night like the Summer Re-Vibe Hip-Hop Dance Showdown, Partakan Summer Bod Swimsuit Competition for we have to cut our trip short in order to be back in Manila in time for our other activities.

Got some video clips too, Please do check it out!
