The Sorsogon Provincial Tourism Council recently launched Sorsogon Province: A Coffeetable Book. It is actually a glossy rendition of what Sorsogon is all about and what it offers in the area of tourism.
As part of the team that worked on the project, I can’t help but be proud of my hometown. Working on the book was like taking a journey of discovery. It was the closest thing to riding the waves to Juag. Or scaling Bulusan. Or spelunking in Prieto-Diaz. Or diving in Donsol.
It was a journey of rediscovery too. As we pored over pictures of old families, I was transported to the Sorsogon of my mother’s stories. To the Sorsogon I grew up in and am now collecting stories of for my daughter.
