Chasing Alaska’s Northern Lights

Chasing Alaska’s Northern Lights | Travel | Scoop.it

When people think of Alaska they immediately think of the arctic, snow, ice, and a general freezing cold. Well, when you tell people that you are going to Alaska in February they immediately think you are crazy.

We've only just Vigan ~ Asian Journal

We've only just Vigan ~ Asian Journal | Travel | Scoop.it
IBy Christine S. Dayrit/I | VIGAN, 03/20/09 -- Once in a while, we are blessed with stories where the power of love reigns over the love for power.

 

Not known to many, the beauty and grace of Vigan could have been completely devastated if not for the love of Takahashi and Adela. It was a miracle that saved the town of Vigan during the last days of the Japanese occupation. As part of their military strategy at the

end of the war, the Japanese were ordered to burn and completely destroy occupied zones before withdrawal. On the eve of their departure from Vigan, the Japanese Military Commander, Captain Fujiro Takahashi, pleaded with the SVD procurator of the Vigan seminary, Fr. Joseph Kleikamp, to take custody of the Japanese officer’s Filipino wife and their love child. The priest agreed on the condition that Takahashi and his men leave Vigan without burning the town to prevent the townspeople from seeking revenge on his family. The next morning, the people of Vigan were overjoyed to know that the Japanese had left peacefully and Vigan was miraculously spared total destruction.

 

Iliw, which means nostalgia, is a full-length narrative feature inspired by true stories of Japanese-Filipino-American War in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, Philippines from 1941-1945. Since World War II, Japanese people have been misunderstood. They have always been pictured, described, defined and judged as the ultimate enemy in the horrors of war. For Takahashi, a high-ranking official in the Japanese army, his true love was Adela with whom he sired two beautiful children. Their love was forbidden by society, thus they met clandestinely on moonless nights in the bell tower behind the historic structures and churches.

TRAVEL GUIDE: Valencia

TRAVEL GUIDE: Valencia | Travel | Scoop.it

The sun poured down upon me as I stepped off the jet for my 36 hours non-stop whirlwind tour of Valencia. Now this is the kind of article I like to write. Sun, sea and Spain. I was in Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, for the launch of Ford’s brand new Kuga, but why not kill two birds with one stone, look at the car and marvel at its wondrousness and secondly get some quality time in Spain and write about one of the most gay friendly cities in Spain.
