Corregidor Island.

Corregidor is an amazing place to visit. It's an island rich in history and heroism; I want to go back just so I could hear the story of the bravery of our forefathers during World War II over and over.

It was raining the entire week here in Manila. Luckily, the skies were clear (and beautifully blue) last Saturday when we sailed to The Rock.

I won't attempt to write about Corregidor because a lot has been written about it. Go to this website instead, to learn more about the island.

But I encourage you to go there, at least once in your life. It will make you more proud to be Pinoy. You will appreciate once more the sacrifices of all those who came before us just so we could be free.

And when you go, tread softly. Many lives have been lost there.

. . . . .

Contact Sun Cruises for your trip to Corregidor.

What to wear:
Light clothing, comfortable shoes, lots of sunscreen.

What to bring:
Water, snacks, extra shirt, wet wipes, tissue/face towel, and your amazing self.

Some photos from the trip last Saturday --






















And ah, here we are, with the amazing people from the Asean Centre for Biodiversity.

Pin It!
