KS Fieldtrip!

Masaya, masigla, mainit at nakakabusog ang kauna-unahang field trip ng Kuwentuhang Sabado na naganap sa Wassen.

Sapagkat ang batong granita na ginamit sa Rizal Memorial sa Luneta sa Maynila ay nanggaling dito mismo sa Reiswald quarry ng Wassen noong 1912, binuksan noong 2014 ang unang Rizal Park dito sa Switzerland bilang alaala sa ating bayani! (Read more about Rizal Park of Wassen here. )

Sa tanghaling ito, noong ika-1 ng Hunyo, nagtagpo-tagpo ang mga pamilyang KS sa isang ihawan sa ibaba ng Rizal Park sa Wassen.

KS Field Trip to Wassen

This year for the very first time, Kuwentuhang Sabado will be hosting a whole day trip to Switzerland’s José Rizal Monument in Wassen, Uri.

Inaugurated in August of 2014, the Rizal Bust is located just a few meters from the train station in Wassen. Part of the Gotthard Trail, the bust is situated near a picnic area suitable for families with children.

For our final KS session this year, we will be having a grill party over lunch near the Rizal Monument. After lunch, we hope to have good weather for “Laro ng Lahi” or traditional Filipino games and some story telling about our national hero José Rizal. With enough KS activities, we plan to close our session with the usual Merienda, so we can all head back home on full stomaches.

For families who would like to hike around the area, we propose an early start, leaving Göschenen in the morning to walk down to Wassen (4,4 km) (1h 40min) before the grill party.

To all families interested to join, please bring your own meat and vegetables for grilling. We will provide for drinks. Please write us an E-mail: kuwentuhangsabado(at)gmail.com so we can give you the planned IT and also account for everyone expected.

Here some useful links of the area:
