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.
