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!

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.

Staycation Vol. 1: Fort Victoria, BGC

Staycation - Fort Victoria

Have you ever been in one of those moods where one day, you’re cool as a daisy, and the next you’re stressed about everything and nothing at the same time? Maybe it’s because I’m experiencing quarter-life crisis, too. Since the start of the year, I’ve been planning a staycation to relax and just chill and not have to do chores. At the same time, my high school best friends and I are planning to have a summer outing. Knowing how hard it is to do an out of town trip that actually happens, I suggested we just do a staycation. They agreed.

First Night in Taiwan

First Night In Taiwan

Well, I have no photo of my first night in Taiwan so I have to make do. Whoops. This is much different from my other travel posts since this is more of a diary entry. Our first night in Taiwan was eventful. Within three hours, we already have stories to tell. Here’s a quick word dump on how I remember our first night in Taiwan went.
