Wonders of the Walled City - Intramuros

Our team was fortunate to snatch a couple of hours from our off-duty day that we decided to have a walk around the walled city - Intramuros. If I remembered correctly,  it was 2013 when I last toured the city... it was very nostalgic to feel the warmth of the city again -- it's air, people, and the whole aura of the place that once nurtured me to become a city warrior (from finding and calling PUVs to ride during rush hours, lining in for rail transits and pushing myself in when theres a need (or a want) to come home early,  crossing pedestrian lanes like a boss, mastering the art of cramming as I went thru college alongside learning a lot of things I didn't know I'm capable of doing like swimming... men I was a scaredy cat to swim before! But thanks to a mandatory swimming class as a pre-requisite to become a biologist, I was able to learn it and even passed a duo-marathon as a final exam! lol. Feel the nostalgia??

So, Here are few of the pictures I captured along the trip.
Walking and sight-seeing is very therapeutic.

Had the chance to finally eat breakfast!! We had KFC for breakfast at a branch with the feels of the 1800's. 

Student discounts! We got in at 50% off!

Offered prayer candles inside a chapel.

The trail of Rizal

Panoramic view of greens

Wonderful shot by our friend aka the creative director, not in picture.

All in all, a nostalgic and feel-good day it was!

  1. I also went to Intramuros earlier this year, but never got to explore the whole walled city. I also blogged about it: http://jojomei.com/fort-santiago-glimpse-past/
    Pero sa Fort Santiago lang kami napadpad haha. Akala namin yun na yun eh haha

    Hopefully I could explore more next time!
