Travel Companion for the Senior Citizens

This idea was created while I am helping a group organize a Holy Land Tour. I was given the instruction that every senior citizen must have a medical clearance and a younger companion to assist him or her. Reasonable enough.

 

I got 3 inquiries that did not made the qualification. All elders are healthy but no younger companion to join them. Another 3 more inquiries that their children are willing to sponsor the trip but cannot go with their parents and grand parents.

 

 During the trip I understand why. 

1. Elders do need help going up and down the stairs.

2. Elders do need help in their bags.

3. Elders do need help in getting more food they still want to eat.

4. Elders do need somebody to listen to them on the trip but too shy to tell the tour leader.

5. Elders need to be reminded of the itinerary.

6. Elders need to be looked up if he/she can keep up with the group.

7. Elders need to be reminded of hydration and assisted in toilet brakes.

Going to the Wailing Wall with sister of Dr. Nenette Fernandez.

It is sooooooo much fun to be with them and learn from their very valuable experiences. It is so much fun to help and serve them because they do deserve respectable caring treatment at their age.

So I thought, since I love to travel and I love senior citizens. With background in caregiving school on caring for the elders and will still learn more. I can offer a service as Senior Citizens Travel Companions. Reflection came in during the Easter Mass at San Isidro Labrador 2014.

Aurora Province is located on the East-Central side of Luzon Island. It is the north-eastern most province of Central Luzon (Region III). It is bordered on the north by the provinces of Isabela and Qurino, on the west by Nueva Ecija and Nueva Viscaya, on the south by Bulacan and Quezon, and on the east by the Pacific Ocean. The province’s main link to the rest of Luzon is through a narrow mountain gravel road that twists through the Sierra Madre Mountain Range. The road is located between Baler and Bongabon, Nueva Ecija.

 

Aurora is a province blessed with an abundance of tourist attractions. It has its share of historical sights such as the home and resthouse of former Philippine President Manuel L. Quezon. The province also has a beautiful Catholic church and several historical markers. Its natural attractions include picturesque waterfalls, lush greenery on mountainsides, and panoramic beaches. Surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, mountain climbing and trekking are only some of the activities a tourist can enjoy in Aurora.

  • Afternoon Buko Pie snack
  • Service of Tour Coordinator
  • Religious Souvenir to reflect on

 

St. James The Apostle Church (Paete Church) Like many of the churches in the province, the Paete Church was built during the early Spanish period. But the novelty of this church lies in the fact that all the religious images found here were carved and/or painted by the residents of Paete long ago.

 

San Pedro De Alcantara Church (Pakil Church) Completed in 1767 after 35 years of construction, the architectural design of the Pedro de Alcantara Parish Church is reminiscent of the Corinthian and Ionic styles. In 1788, the Virgin of Turumba was enshrined in this church. Through the years, the church has survived great calamities. Along with the rectory, it was burned in 1851 but was repaired the same year; it survived two earthquakes, one in 1881 and the other in 1937.

ANAWANGIN Capones, Talisayin & Camarra

Anawanging Zambales

W Camara, Talisayin and Capones

Anawangin Cove is a crescent shaped cove with a pristine white sand beach. What makes the place unique is the unusual riddle of tall pine trees flourishing round its vicinity. There are no roads leading to Anawangin. It is only accessible by a 30 minute boat ride from Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales. The cove is a sparkling piece of natural beauty, save for a few huts and deep wells.

Just behind the beach is the pine forest and a marsh, where one can find natural springs feeding to the sea. The area is home to a number of bird species.

CRUISE & DIVE PACKAGE ( 18 dives)   USD

LOWER CABIN Double Occupancy      USD 2,500

UPPER CABIN  Double Occupancy      USD 3,100

Diving itinerary

Day 1   Departure from Batangas International Port Embarkation time is between 2-4 pm

Boat Briefing – Dinner

Day 2   Apo Reef

Apo Reef is regarded as one of the world’s best diving locations. We will make a total of 3 dives today, 2 day dives and a night dive for those qualified. You can look forward to some spectacular dives with visibility of up to 40 m or better. The reef begins at five meters depth, descending to approximately 40 m. The first dive will be a check out dive where you will be asked to demonstrate the 3 basic skills, mask clearing, regulator recovery and buoyancy control.

Northern Palawan

Day 3   Barracuda Lake-Siete Pecados (7 Islands)-Maquinit Hot Spring-Kayangan Lake

Divers will do 2 morning dives in Siete Pecados and Twin Peaks  and 1 dive at the Barracuda lake

1) Twin Peaks is named after the two limestone formations that break the surface of the water. We descend along one of the rock walls adorned with large gorgonians. Turtles are frequently seen here.

This dive is suitable for Advanced Open Water certified divers or higher.

2) Siete Pecados is  home to a great variety of unusual tropical fish and a very rich coral environment. Scientists found 2 new coral species here within the last 5 years . This dive is suitable for Advanced Open Water certified divers or higher.

3) Barracuda Lake – a unique and highly unusual dive site. It is a deep, volcanic in-land lake where the water temperature increases with depth – roughly 1ºC per metre. The water is clear, but aside from some small c fishin the shallower parts, the lake is devoid of aquatic life.

Divers come to appreciate the underwater pinnacles. However, an ancient old barracuda reportedly lives in  the lake, hence the name. The lake is accessible through a short climb over stairs placed over jagged rocks.

Day 4   Sangat Island –Culion

Divers will be diving 3 wrecks today. Irako will be the destination for their first early morning dive. After a heavy breakfast, divers will depart for 2 dives with a packed lunch. Sangat or Tangat Wreck and the Olympia Maru are their 2nd & 3rd dives.  Divers will meet up with the ship in Culion Island after the 3rd dive. Night Dive at Dynamite Point is available for those qualified.

Day 5   Calumbuyan  & North Cay Islands

The Akitsushima is the one true warship of the Japanese Fleet that we will be visiting today. A Sea Plane tender, the crane lies in the sand not far from the hull, while an Anti Aircraft gun can be found right next to the deck lying on the sandy sea floor. Around the wreck is one of the few areas where divers can see Sea-whips in the  shape of a harp.

The second dive of the day will be at the freighter “Taiei Maru”. The ship now rests on the side. It was hit by three torpedoes that all went through the same hole. The gigantic hole is now visible at 14 metres depth. Inside the ship, the two large engine boilers can be seen. The top side of the wreck is completely overgrown with corals,  which attract plenty of crocodile fish. The afternoon dive will be at one of Calumbuyans beautiful reefs. Expect to find Coral bommies with colonies of giant sized grape corals.

At 6 p.m. it is time for a night dive. We will explore North Cay , where we may see octopuses on the hunt and big moray eels leaving their shelters in search off food.

  

 

 

Day 6   Dibotonai

Upon arriving at Dibotonai, we will cross to Black Island by boat where we will dive at the remains of the 50 m long “Nanshin Maru”. It is a civilian tanker converted to carry special fuels in small isolated tanks for replenishment of land-based depots. The wreck rests upright on a sandy bottom at a maximum depth of 32 m. Visibility here is much better than at the other wrecks, 20-25 m or better is common. Near the wreck you can see plenty of scorpion fish, lion fish, groupers, and bat fish.

In the afternoon we will make a dive at the northern reef of Dibotonai. If we are lucky, we may encounter the nearly extinct dugong (sea cow), which sometimes comes to graze on the sea grass in the area. A wide variety of crabs, octopuses, surgeon fish and puffer fish inhabit the reef.

Day 7   Tara Islands, Dimakya Island Club Paradise 

We will be doing 2 morning dives on the hard and soft coral gardens of Tara Islands on our last day at sea.  Very little divers , or people for that matter, have been on its reefs  or beaches. You will be one of the lucky few. We will set sail for our last stop, Club paradise during lunch time. The last dive will be at Club paradise house reef .  This is a chance to dive with its resident sea turtle and  schooling jacks in the sea grass areas, as well as observe the myriad of macro critters such as frog fishes and nudibranchs  on the reef itself.
