Inflatable Island PH: A Comprehensive Travel Guide

Inflatable Island PH - Richel Goes Places

Have you heard of any floating playgrounds lately? I would assume so – it appears to be all the rage lately. And last weekend, I finally set my foot on one! It was a long trip waiting to happen. I was working weekends for the past months that it’s so hard to set an out-of-town trip with my friends and family. So, when I finally found out that I have weekends off this month, I booked us tickets to Inflatable Island PH faster than you can say “FREEDOM!”

Just a three-hour drive from Manila, Inflatable Island PH claims to be the biggest floating playground in Asia. It’s around 3400 of square meters – roughly the size of eight basketball courts! What makes it so huge? Well, it includes slides, towers, bridges, human launchers, monkey bars, swings, etc. Perfect for adrenaline junkies and beach babies – which is coincidentally what they call their visitors!

I Don’t Know About You But I’m Feeling 22!

I'm Feeling 22 - Richel Vergara

I turned 22 a little over a month ago and you bet I sang along to Taylor Swift’s 22 all day. It was a fun day and I got the much-needed four days off from work to recharge. I have a few ideas on what to write about it – how I celebrated my day to what I learned from the past 22 years, etc.

Then when I was going through my digital files, I decided to share some old photos and highlight 22 events in my life. So this is me looking back to how the past 22 years how been and how I am so lucky to have the life that I have.

Finally in Bohol, Philippines

Bohol, Philippines

Just a two hours plane ride from Manila or an even quicker ferry ride from its more famous neighbor Cebu, Bohol offers a different set of adventure. The island is famous for its Chocolate Hills or photos of the wide-eyed tiny tarsiers. Not only that, but Bohol also have a set of white beaches and man-made forests that they can boast about.

Bandom Concerts

ILYSB, LANY.

LANY-Manila

LANY blew up in my social media feeds earlier this year. And when a band blows up in my twitter following, I listen to it. Every time. I mean, that’s how I find out about The 1975! This one didn’t disappoint. With one listen to ILYSB, I was hooked.

Money Diaries: Night Shift

Money-Diaries

Since June this year, I have been consistently writing down how much I spend every day among other things. Seeing it written down on my daily journal makes me reconsider my spending habits and lets me see just where I spend so much money and how to cut back. If you guys remember, I made a personal finance blog months back but maintaining two blogs is so hard, so I’m incorporating that to my personal blog. I’ll be sharing my financial diaries occasionally – maybe when I have some events affecting my finances.
