I Have Been to the Philippines

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41 People

    The last time that I went to the Philippines

    was back in 1990. My parents, brother, and I went there for my grandparents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. I would like to take my husband to the Philippines, so he could meet the rest of my relatives. We can't afford to go there cause of money. Plus, it's expensive to go there.

    Camp John Hay

    My father was stationed at Camp John Hay at Baguio City, RP from 1971-1974.  I was a teenager at the time and went to school at Brent School.  It was probably the best time of my life.  I enjoyed being with the people, the food, and the culture.  I would go...
