Where do broken souls go? To the place where they can find peace and clarity.
Admit it. We all need a moment to breath in and out of the exhausting fast-paced city life. Whether or not we enjoy our 9-5 job or your 3 hours class, if you’re in college, we all need a specific week in a year to recharge and re-evaluate ourselves.
Happiness is all about finding the inner peace within us. Take a look at these five ideal and breath-taking places in the Philippines where you can go for a day or a week of soul-searching.
“Closer to nature. Closer to God.” Caleruega is not only a perfect place for retreats and a popular place for wedding events but also an ideal place for a quick weekend getaway outside the metro. The serenity of the place is enough to help you clear your mind and have some time to sit and talk to God without any distraction.
