Upon entering the gate/main entrance of Calaruega, you will be given a pamphlet showing some photos, facilities available, reservation guidelines (for retreats, seminars and weddings), fees and statements about Calaruega:
“Calaruega is a house of prayer and renewal. It is open to activities like retreats, recollections, prayer and renewal workshops, study, research, youth camps, marriage and family encounter celebrations, skills training, leadership seminars, art, music, and liturgy workshops and environment and agriculture-related activities.”Btw, this is my first time to visit the place. Calaruega was our first place in our T3 (Trip to Tagaytay) itinerary together with family and friends. It is really advisable to have an early or much earlier visit there. For those who haven’t been to Calaruega yet, this place is good for nature lover and photoholics like me. I’m not that pro he3 but I really wanted to share some of my shots to you here.
This is their 150-seat capacity Transfiguration Chapel. A beautiful church indeed.
What I like about this blog thing is, posting and writing about places I have visited make me learn more and get attached with the place. As a blogger, it is a requirement that I know at least the basic of the place I am about to blog. Here’s how I do it actually. First, I do my little research before I go to such place, but not to the extent because the excitement might lose especially if it’s my first time to visit. Second, the up close and personal. I don’t take notes, just my own and camera’s memory. I visited places to explore and enjoy which are the primary reason, to blog is just secondary. Third, I edit and upload the photos taken, then write and post draft to blog. Fourth, before I publish my blog, that’s the time I read other blogs with the same topic as mine. And before I publish my Calaruega experience, I realized that there are some spots there that we were not able to take a look at and that was after reading some co-blogger’s post. So there’s my fifth and last step in blogging, a revisit..not a bad idea after all he3..
Till next time!
