Very recently, I visited Corregidor, an island which sits strategically at the mouth of Manila Bay. I came wanting to know more about the island's history, marvel at its scenic views, and of course, visit its famed lighthouse.
For quite some time now, I have been fascinated with lighthouses -- lonely sentinels of the sea that welcome ships as they approach harbors and bid them farewell in their seafaring journey. I've been so fascinated in fact that I decided to visit as many lighthouses in my country as I can. In this mini-series I call Beacons Beckoning, I will document my progress in this wanderlust-driven endeavor.
