A Tour to St.Dominic Church and Bataan Tourism

“If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.”- Michael Crichton. If history is unknown to us how would we appreciate the present times? Participating to tours that shows and imparts the history of something is a great opportunity to see and reflect why and what life has been today.
Last September 23, 2015, Wednesday, together with my classmates we are blessed to witness historical places like the St. Dominic Parish Church and the Bataan Tourism Center which caters different historical events and contributions of our fellow Filipinos here at Bataan.
First stop is the Saint Dominic Parish Church which is known as Abucay Church, located at Brgy. Laon, Abucay, Bataan. The church is founded by Dominican Missionary Friars and built to be dedicated to St. Dominic de Guzman. This church witnessed the massacre of hundreds of Filipinos and Spaniards by the Dutch invaders. The building is more than 400 years old and one of the oldest church in the Philippines. The making of St. Dominic Parish Church was headed by Father Geronimo de Belen in early 1600s. Saint Dominic Church once suffered by a horrible damage because of the earthquake but still survived. On the later years it was destroyed by fire but was revived and reconstructed under Father Jose Diego Pelaez. This only shows how much we value our church as much as we value our creator.
Second stop is the Bataan Tourism Center which is located at Roman Highway, Balanga, Bataan. Bataan Tourism Center was constructed through the efforts during the term of Gov. Enrique T. Garcia Jr., Congressman Albert S. Garcia, Bataan Tourism Council Foundation Inc. and the Philippine Tourism Authority. It caters different attractions like the Provincial Tourism Office, Exhibit Hall, Audio Visual Room, and Pasalubong Center that showcased the finest products, souvenirs, handicrafts and delicacies here in Bataan. In the Exhibit Hall, there is a diorama which depicts the “Battle of Bataan”. Also they have showed how Japanese invade Bataan. We also watched a video presentation where Bataan was noticed by a television show “Biyahe ni Drew” to show the different historical and educational places and foods in Bataan. It only depicts how Bataan is blessed with numerous beautiful places and delicious foods that really marked in our history.
This educational tour was really a great experience, we don’t just visit the places but at the same time we’ve learned a lot from it. We are blessed to have these kinds of places that we Filipinos should value more and be proud of. History is not just the past but the reason why there is a future. I’ve learned to value what we have today and share it with the next generations.

The Grand Tour

...The Grand Tour In the past, "Grand Tour" was the name of the journey that mostly northern European nobles and rich bourgeois took to southern Europe to discover its ancient beauty and its incomparable richness of arts and culture. This type of travel began in the seventeenth century for the sake of education and experience, but the great age of the Grand Tour was the eighteenth century. At this time the travel experience was practically viewed as a requirement for wealthy Europeans as a transition from their school life to their “adulthood in which the young man might be expected to set an example of responsibility.” Italy and France were the most frequented places by these tourists due to their cultural richness, with particular interest in Paris. As the custom of travel developed, nature also became an important factor of the Grand Tour, as the Alps became an attractive destination for the travelers. The tour was more than a “passing fashion” because of its role as fundamental cultural training for cultivated Europeans. The majority of those who had traveled to Italy in previous centuries had generally gone for work related or religious reasons. However, this travel was compatible with leisure, because “it fulfilled important cultural functions as travelers bought works of art or helped spread new tastes and cultural interests”. Although the religious and political tensions caused by Protestant Reformation affected the ability to travel, by the seventeenth century, traveling...

Manila Walk Tour

...WALK TOUR REACTION PAPER Last, Monday, September 21, 2015, we had our "Food" walk tour in Binondo with Mr. Ivan Dy. The tour was very tiring and at the same time stomach filling. It was tiring because the weather was so hot and we just walked to go to our destination. It was stomach filling because we went to 5 destinations and just ate chinese foods the entire tour. The foods were delicious. Mr. Ivan is a fun and entertaining tour guide. Even though he had mic, we werent able to understand some of what he’s saying. He wasn’t able to catch all the attention of the students. Last Sunday, September 27, 2015, we had our Intramuros tour with Mr. Carlos Celdran. The tour last for about 3 hours. It was called a walk tour but there really is not much walking. We went to 4 destinations and sit down to listen to him. The tour was tiring and at the same time interesting. It was tiring because the weather was kind of hot and there are many of us and it was interesting because Mr. Carlos Celdran made the tour very entertaining with his props, the changed of hats and the throwing of santan from his pocket. From the way he delivers, it looks like we were just watching a play. Every time he says the line “Walk This Way!” it excites everyone and follows him and you can see a smile on everyone’s faces. It was one of the reasons why the tour was exciting. He even gave all of us a chocolate, to be specific choc nut, for answering his question. I noticed that almost all the people who belong to...

Tour de France

...The Tour de France Executive Summary 1.1 Introduction and Description of the Tour De France The Tour de France is an annual bicycle race held in France and nearby countries. First staged in 1903, the race covered more than 3,600 kilometres (2,200 miles) and lasted three weeks. Nearly 200 riders begin each tour on the first weekend in July (Thompson, 2008). The number of teams usually varies between 20 to 22 teams, with nine riders in each team. No set numbers of stages are required in the Tour each year, but in recent years, at least 20 stages have comprised the race. The cyclist with the lowest cumulative time after the 20 stages wins (Liggett et al, 2005). This report aims to examine the development, management, impacts and success of this event and how it could be successfully replicated in Northern Ireland. 1.2 Background and development of the Tour De France A hundred summers ago, the Tour de France was born out of political conflict, and from a circulation war between competing sports journals. An editor of one these journals - Henri Desgrange, decided that he needed a sensational publicity venture to attract new readers. He himself was an enthusiastic cyclist and cycle racer. A six-day race was suggested all around France. Long-distance cycle races were a popular means to sell more newspapers. If it succeeded, it would help the journal match its rivals. The first Tour de France was staged in 1903 and the plan was a five-stage...

Tour de France

...Tour de France Tour de France is considered to be the most influential bicycle race around the world. It starts at every July 1st and usually takes a month to the end of the race. The race has been held every year since 1903 except the interruption by two World Wars. The whole race is over 3200 kilometers in distance and has 21 days of racing. The starting point of the race is changing every year, sometimes the race starts in some northern cities and some border countries as well. There is usually a varied number of team involved in the race from 20 to 22 which has 9 players each in the team. All players are competing toward the great honor of the champion of Tour de France. I just started watching Tour de France last summer by the recommendation of a friend. I saw the great bicycle racer Alberto Contador from Spain became the champion of Tour de France. He is a strong player and my friend told me that he thought Contador was not good any more before the race but he came back to the 1st place again. He said the Spanish players are starting controlling the Tour de France after the great 7-time-champion Lance Armstrong from United States. He was looking forward to seeing a new champion from US soon. American bicycle racers seem to have disadvantage in Tour de France because it’s like an away game for them but a home game for European racers. Tour de France is a wonderful race which brings everyone who loves bicycle race together and enjoys this big...

...Tourism is a constantly growing industry that generates billions of dollars per year contributing to more than 9% of New Zealand’s GDP. In 1939, the amount of international travellers worldwide was one million and today there are over one billon each year. (Higham, 2013). This industry has seen major developments, improvements, and growth in just a single generation with the increase in advancements of technology and the introduction of affordable flights. Tourism is a complex system that is constantly changing. Due to this innovative nature, tourism is extremely challenging to define and confine. Generally, the technical definition of tourism, as explained by the UNWTO, is “tourism comprises the activities of persons traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes.” (Page, S., 2007). This definition is extremely broad but it becomes difficult to make more specific as it is a fragile system and there are many interpretations of tourism, which are constantly changing. Tourism is a complex system that includes geographic, human, and industry elements. It includes the examining of the interplay of generating, transit, and destination regions, human behaviours and interactions, and the development and delivery of tourism products and services. Due to the increased availability of air travel, there has been significant increase in the ability to access areas of interest, even those...

The Tour

...Charles Lucas Brenda Craven English Composition 101VA 1 July 2013 The Tour As a young man, leaving your home country for the first time is a very scary endeavor. I had barely left the small state of West Virginia, much less, traveled abroad to a whole other continent. I was about to embark upon the second adventure of my adult life. The first being my first airplane ride to attend basic training at Fort Bliss, in El Paso, Texas. I was happy to be doing be doing things as an adult, and I was proud to serve my country, yet I was very anxious about what may lie ahead for me. I guess at that age, and my lack of experience, I could not understand why I was going to Korea. There was no war going on there, and I was an American soldier. What in the world would I need to do in the Republic of Korea? I considered myself to be a lucky man. because I was going on what was considered to be a hardship tour. I was afforded the opportunity to take 30 days leave from the US Army, to spend with my family. I explained to my loved ones that I would be stationed in South Korea for a year, and I would not be home until the completion of my tour. My mom took it a little harder than everyone else, but she managed to pull herself together, and just enjoy the few days we had together. I visited with everyone to say my last good byes, and then it was time to go. My journey began on the 27th of December in 1985. I arrived at the small airport in Charleston, West Virginia...
