Travel soon

The pandemic has put a lot of things on hold including travel. You may have paid in advance your much-awaited trip to that dream tourist destination of yours only to be cancelled due to lockdown.

The economy may be starting to open slowly after several months but the Covid threat is still out there. For those who have waited this long, why not give it a little more time to wait when it is safer to travel and visit places.

For now, we can make do with updating our travel bucket list and check on those areas that are bound safe to travel.

My list of dream places to visit still exists. If I have the financial capacity and physical strength, I would visit all the scenic spots in the country.

In 2005 or 2006, I had the chance to pass through San Juanico Bridge. Here’s a couple of snapshots (above) taken by our photographer companion. I mentioned San Juanico Bridge because of the recent lighting project of the Department of Tourism.

The lighting project, which is 75 percent complete, will be operational by the end of November. It will be a night attraction to the country’s longest bridge in time for the Christmas season.

Tourism officials said the project is expected to create economic activities from tourism, as more people will visit the bridge not just take pictures. San Juanico Bridge connects the islands of Samar and Leyte provinces.

I have visited the bridge before, but I would definitely go back. I hope the pandemic will be over soon.

Why Should Children Visit Museums

My Throwback Thursday post and one of my favorite entries about museums. Enjoy reading!

There are times when children are required to go on a field trip. For most kids, a field trip might mean something fun to do that is somewhat related to school. However, there are times when kids do not like it when they visit museums because they tend to get bored.

This is the reason why museums are starting to put interesting things for kids as well. The tendency is when they become interested in something; they will also start looking around. They will eventually have better understanding and knowledge about the things that can be seen inside the museum.

Here are other positive effects of visiting the museum:

  • Children will gain more knowledge about the history of their country.
  • Children will learn more about the culture of the society that they live in.
  • It will give children the chance to appreciate the things that they have right now and at the same time, appreciate the things that were available in the past.
  • It will give children a break from the highly technological surroundings that children are exposed to on a daily basis at present time.

With all of these benefits, there are enough reasons why children should visit museums.
