If you're not so familiar (maybe you're not from the country), Jose Rizal is the national hero of the Philippines and on July 17, 1892, he was sent to Dapitan as a prisoner where he was on exile for four years.
Even though he was a prisoner, he was able to do a lot of things and this blog space won't be enough to retell the rich history associated with him.
A year ago, before we headed to Dakak (our beach destination), my friends and I visited Rizal Shrine in Dapitan City.
It was a very quiet and serene place void of technology and social media. A huge place surrounded by trees and plants. I would have loved to just stay there. It's a great place to meditate and maybe do yoga.
We first went to the museum. Walking inside was a bit eerie so I just snapped photos here and there because my friends walked too fast and I wanted to catch up right away.
We were only there for an hour or less and it was scorching hot because it was noon time but the trees around made the heat very bearable. There's no entrance fee by the way.
I hope you enjoyed our short excursion today. Happy Monday!
Stay happy! ♥
