Welcome to my "TravelBlogue"! I have been traveling for more than four decades and have always enjoyed relating my experiences. Part of how I have done that is by working as a freelance journalist and writing non-fiction books and travel guides, activities that keep me on the road. This site serves as an adjunct to those activities and allows me to cover things that might not easily fit into any of them or which may warrant additional coverage.
first day in Manila we visited the walled city of Intramuros, to include Spanish colonial-era Fort Santiago (a glimpse of which appears here); St.
Agustin Church, one of only seven churches in the historic district to survive
World War II; and then finally the underwhelming Mall of Asia, where we killed
time and waited to go back to the ship.
