Corregidor: The Lonely Island
Travel date: February 28, 2015
My best friend from elementary days, who turned out to be an impulsive, kind-of-a-daredevil-travel buddy, agreed with me to have a weekend getaway that was not so far away from the city and only requires us only to spend a whole day. So here we go.
We just read about the island during our history classes in school, and I seriously thought that it was too far away from the metropolis. All I ever knew about the place is that it is full of history as the frontier of an impending battle that decided the country’s fate during the World War II, as what the textbook says
Next stop would be the star of this trip, the ruins. We rode a shuttle that would take us on the Topside. The island has three parts, the Tailside, Middleside and the Topside. On this trip, we frequented the Topside and Middleside part. Maybe I could go back there again and trudge through the other side as well.
|Eternal Flame of Freedom|
Adjacent to the Museum is the Pacific War Memorial where we shared a minute of silence for our fallen brothers. Beyond the dome was the Eternal Flame of Freedom. Overlooking was the sight of Manila Bay and Cavite.
