BOKAG Balik Sa Kagahapon Heritage Tour: An Effective Way To Love History

Other than the stories that my late grandparents told me about, history didn't interest me when I was in school. In fact, my eyelids would automatically go heavier whenever the professor discussed about Death March, El Filibusterismo, Tydings McDuffie, and whatnot. My view was changed when my Bohol Bloggers Collective friends and I joined the… Continue reading BOKAG Balik Sa Kagahapon Heritage Tour: An Effective Way To Love History
