I waited to take a photo of Mt. Apo while we were in D' Leonor Inland Resort but the clouds stayed on and the tallest mountain of our country remained hidden all throughout the afternoon.

Picking a Package in Spain

Whether you’re looking for the perfect place to spend your annual summer holiday or you’re trying to squeeze in your fifth break of the year, there are more than a few good reasons to spend your next escape in Spain.

On the mainland you’ve got prime city break territory with the likes of fast-paced Madrid, the architectural delights of Barcelona or the chic waterside cafes of Valencia. Then there’s the ever-popular golden Costas which are scattered along the South and South-East coastlines - from the lively Costa Del Sol and boisterous Costa Blanca, to the more authentic and traditional ambience of Costa de la Luz.

Moored just off the coastline are the glorious Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca. If a quiet pace with some serious rest and relaxation are on the agenda, you can’t go wrong with Menorca package holidays. Here you’ll find pine-clad hills flanking golden sandy beaches, calm azure shores and cloudless blue skies, perfect for leisurely strolls, hiking and enjoying a refreshing break at any one of the low-key cafes or restaurants dotted along the coastline.

Spain package holidays are generally geared around the beach, but there are always plenty of other things to see and do. Thanks to their popularity with British and European tourists - which brings many visitors flocking back to these sunny shores year after year - there are plenty of activities on offer to suit every age and ability. Kids will love the numerous water parks with their death-defying flumes, families will appreciate the boat trips and glass-bottomed tours which gives great views of sea life, while energetic types can get their fix by jet skiing, wind surfing or mountain biking.

Spain is a diverse destination with more than enough holiday experiences to suit even the most particular of tastes, and it’s no surprise that so many visitors choose to come back here year after year.

Skywatch#111 Philippine Churches#11 San Geronimo Church In The Morning Light

IMG_7982
After doing our first station of the Way of the Cross inside Iglesia de San Geronimo (St. Jerome's Church), we made our way to the parking area which was at the back of the church. There was a shorter route by the stairway at the back of the church but we went around the area before reaching our tourist bus. En route to the parking lot, I saw this baclighted view of the church's facade. This is my entry for:

Getting Ready For Another Vacation

Initial preparations are already underway for our planned long vacation later this year. I have been saving for it and  meetings with my travel friends have been ongoing. We decided to delegate our travel tasks to make things easier. Two of us are tasked to do the research on our travel packages and accommodations. I already found some very good prospects through the information below.

Skywatch#110 Philippine Churches#10 San Geronimo Parish Church, Morong, Rizal

I thank God for the blessings He has given me and I just feel lucky and blessed that inspite of the hardships, I could work hard and save enough to travel. I usually learn a lot from traveling especially in my travels across my country.

I have been eyeing the Visita Iglesia travel package being offered by Illuminati tours for more than two years now but could not get synchronized with my schedule. A blessing in disguise perhaps because this year's Holy Week, I not only did the Visita Iglesia in Laguna but I also took my mother and my niece along. Aside from that, we did a sidetrip to Pagsanjan Falls but that's another story.

To start off our Laguna Visita Iglesia, we visited San Geronimo Parish Church at Morong, Rizal.


The baroque architecture style of the church is quite obvious in the lines of its three-story facade and its octagonal-shaped bell tower.

 San Geronimo (St. Jerome) Parish Church is the oldest church in the town of Morong, Rizal. Chinese craftsmen helped build the church which is why it has two Chinese lion sculptures at the entrance. I read somewhere that it is one of the most photographed churches in Laguna.
