Touchdown: Korea 2016

Touchdown Korea - Richel Goes Places

I wish I’m the kind of blogger that writes about her trips days – even weeks – after it happened, but I’m not. Here I am, more than a year after my Korea trip, and I’m just starting my backlogs. But, fret not, as I amazingly still remember everything that happened on my Korea trip last autumn.

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.
