Former STC’s “Goin’ Cruising” along New England and Canadian coastline

September 22 – October 2, 2016


Months in the planning took shape when 16 adventurous souls, linked through St Theresa’s College, gathered in New York for ten days of cruising along the New England and Canadian coastlines, finishing up in the quaint port city of Quebec.

Organised by Bessie Gonzales Escalona, president of Voyager Travel in Makati, the group comprised Theresians from the Philippines, the United States and Australia.

Ports of call included Boston, Bar Harbor and Newport in the US and Halifax/ Sydney (Nova Scotia), Saint John, Prince Edward Island and Quebec in Canada.

Sydneysiders Lorna Opilas-Manodon, Yvonne and Evelyn Opilas had fun distinguishing they live in Sydney New South Wales rather than Sydney Nova Scotia (which roughly translates to New Scotland).

And most importantly, compassion in the doctor-to-be. Read on:...
