2Travel. 2Cruise. 2Go (Part 1)

..Sailing, takes me away to where I've always heard it could be/ Just a wind and the dream to carry me/ Soon I will be free..

Kasalukuyan kong pinapatugtog ang awitin ni Christopher Cross na 'Sailing' nang mag-ring ang aking cellphone.

Sheila Padilla, my friend from Tagline was on the other line.

'Hello, Allan, gusto mong sumama sa bloggers' meet ng 2Go? Nov.19-21. Wala kang gagastusin. Sasama ka lang.'

'Ha? 3 days akong magli-leave..Pwede bang pag-isipan ko muna?'

'O sige, let me know agad ha. Nagso-shortlist na kasi kami ng blogger participants.'

'OK, sasama ako.'

Hodevah and bilis? Ahihihi. Wala ng patumpik-tumpik pa! Join agad. Aba, bihira ang ganitong invitation 'no! So check yan! May dalang swerte yata ang kanta ni pareng Christopher Cross. Imma go cruisin' baby!

I love to travel. If my sked and finances permit, I'd travel. I'm always in awe on what a certain place would bring me. I have been to Boracay, Bohol, Cebu, Coron, Antulang Beach and Apo Island in Dumaguete, Caramoan Islands, Bangkok and Singapore via plane.

To be invited to go to Iloilo and Bacolod and board via 2 Go Travel, would be different. Perstaym ko atang magbabarko. Yes, I've been to Marinduque several times already, but that was a much smaller vessel.

This is going to be exciting! I was so excited and I just can't hide it that I had a hard time sleeping the night before the trip. Ganun ako ka-excited. Parang bata lang. :)) I dont wanna be late on the next day's assembly so I counted sheep to fall asleep.. 1 sheep, 2 sheeps.. zzzzzzzz Borlog agad. Chos.

Nov. 19, 10am at The Hub- dito ang tagpuan. 

The Hub is a luxurious lounge for 2Go passengers.It is located near Rizal monument and beside the Chinese Garden in Rizal Park.


'posh'

Mr. Stephen Tagud, VP and Passages Business Commercial Officer officially opened the event and welcomed the bloggers.


After eating lunch,we were transported to the port via the 2Go shuttle. Spell bonggels?!


It wasn't more than 10 minutes and we were at the port!


No, this is not NAIA. This is the Manila North Port. Stylish, comfortable seating, and inviting.

And then the 'bida' of this entry. Drum roll please....


We were given a State Room, joining me inside the room are 3 other bloggers.


At aminin, may bath tub! Hodevah? :) sana kasama ko si babykoi para sabay kami nag-tub. Ahihihihi


At may freebies from 2Go with a personal note from Sir Stephen Tagud! Isn' this sweet?  'tears' :)

Let me show you around the vessel..

Presenting the rooms tailored fit for every traveler's budget:

The Airline Seater

 The Mega Value Room

 The Tourist Room
The Suite Room.. definitely, pang-mayaman! Ahihihihi

I can't believe one can have a hotel-feel inside a ship. Super nice!

I know most of us are having hesitations riding a ship due to safety reasons. But worry not! It's super safe- kaliwa't kanan ang mga safety precautions:


Life Jackets are within your reach..














Should you feel sick, there's a clinic and the attendants are on 24 hours stand by..


But wait, there's more! On my next entry, I'll show the beautiful dining area, a VIP access to the Captain's bridge and the roof deck, the event hall where we, bloggers, had major fun plus a lot more!

Lahat ng yan sa pagbabalik ng 'Buzz..ng Bayan!' Chos.
