It can be tiring to look at your social feed filled with vacation photos and all you can say is, ‘sana all’. It is more tiring if the only travel you’re experiencing is going to the office and being stuck in traffic.
What you need is a vacation.
But if you are a couch potato, Trip Ko ‘To travel show can inspire you to jump off your seat and start planning your dream vacation.
Before trying to take down Spiderman as the Green Goblin, Hollywood actor Willem Dafoe was at the EDSA People Power Revolution in 1986.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the actor recalled how he marched with thousands of Filipino people who wanted then President Ferdinand Marcos to step down from his office.
Dafoe flew to Manila to work on the film Platoon, for which he was nominated best supporting actor.
“I arrived in the Philippines and my plane was the last plane in because there was a revolution. ‘Sit tight, the movie’s canceled, we’ll get you out when we can.’ So for about three or four days, me and a couple of other people that were there ahead of time were out on the streets with the people.
After the revolution, the movie resumed production and Dafoe, along with the other casts and film crew, returned to the country to shoot the movie.
“It was an incredible feeling because it was a revolution that happened for the most part without violence,” he said.—AAC
