It's More Fun In The Philippines (official video)

There are 7,107 reasons why It's More Fun in the Philippines!

Enjoy this video of my homeland made by the Department of Tourism office.

It's more fun in the Philippines!

The Philippines' Department of Tourism unveiled this morning its new international tourism campaign dubbed "It's more fun in the Philippines."

I definitely agree on this statement and I'm helping spread the word. And if I may add, not only the Philippines but also the Filipinos are more fun!

Postcard Friday #10: Ferry Meadows

Ferry Meadows is the 200ha (500acre) Country Park located at the heart of Nene Park in Peterborough.

Imagine somewhere beautiful, safe and unspoilt where you can walk, cycle, play, horse-ride, ride a train, go fishing, exercise the dog, jog, push the buggy and explore endless meadows, lakes and woodland - all less than three miles from Peterborough's busy city centre.
You'll find all this and more - including water sports, cafes, hard-surfaced routes for wheelchair users, a busy events and activity programme and endless opportunities for outdoor recreation. (Source: Nene Park Trust)

However, I'm not familiar with the picture used in the above postcard. I have never been to this part of Ferry Meadows.

My family have been to Ferry Meadows a few times as it is a good place to relax in. The Filipino community hold their annual summer Family Fun day in the park, which has been going on for two years now.

Postcard Friday #9: Guildhall

Guildhall (1669-1671) is located in Cathedral Square, Peterborough city centre.

According to Wikipedia, Peterborough's magnificent 17th century Guildhall was built shortly after the restoration of King Charles II. It is supported by columns to provide an open ground floor for the butter and poultry markets which used to be held there. The market place was later renamed Cathedral Square.

Guildhall was also known as Butter Cross (also Market Cross). In Wikipedia, a market cross is a structure used to mark a market square in market towns, originally from the distinctive tradition in Early Medieval Insular art of free-standing stone standing or high crosses, often elaborately carved, which goes back to the 7th century.

Originally, Guildhall was also used as civic offices aside from being a market place. It was built by John Lovin, a master mason of Peterborough. For more on Guildhall visit the Peterborough Hidden Heritage website.
