Where do I Start?

If I were a tourguide...........How can I present my Hometown to TOURISTS?
Or if my friends here in Virtual Tourist...will ask me that they wanted see my hometown......What will I do? Where will I take them?

This is my larger than LIFE stumbling block..........a place where it is in the middle of much prosperous towns like Apalit in the North, Malolos in South, Pulilan in the East and Hagonoy in the West (I hope i got it right) .......... and to think that my hometown cannot offer something to Tourist like the provices and islands of Batanes, Sagada, Cebu ,Bohol, Dipolog, Ilocos, etc...this is not an easy task hahahahhahaa but i think describing my hometown first might be a good start..........and maybe telling something coming from my heart about the place i grew up will make a diference............

First, It is a small town comprising of twenty-eight villages....it is the
oldest town in Bulacan..... older than Malolos (Capital) maybe even Bulacan itself. Second the name CALUMPIT came from a tree which grew all over the area when the Spanish came..............now i have told you two things about my town.... And the thirdly Calumpit municipal Hall it is the oldest in Bulacan........whatelse.......

Did you know that that I can smell summertime and Christmastime in my hometown.............that is right.....everytime i smell palay...ready to be harvest........... i smell summer and........everytime i smell cogon grass...and when the coldness of the night touch my face everytime i am riding on a vehicle........ i smell Christmas........too poetic isn't it ....:)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice place....to escape City Life for a while.........
  • Cons:There's not much to see here......
  • In a nutshell:Although my hometown will pale in comparison with Batanes...or Bohol....or Cebu........but the only thing i can say..is that...I was born here...I grew up here...........I still live here........like the old saying goes...Home is WHERE the Heart is..
