Changing Your Money: 5 Great Tips on Getting the Best Deals


Going abroad is exciting. Getting your money changed into the right currency isn’t. Nevertheless, it’s essential you have the necessary spending money available in the local currency. It’s no good turning up in Europe trying to pay with dollars. So get it sorted early and you’ll be on your way to having a seamless, enjoyable trip.

It’s surprisingly easy to get ripped off when changing money. Exchange rates vary depending on where you go (changing up your money at airports is never a great idea) and most banks will add fees if you use your card abroad. You can still get a good deal, though. Pay attention to the following five tips:

Hungry Saturday at Bonifacio High Street

Bonifacio High Street

I did some changes on my blog for the past two weeks, if you haven’t noticed. The biggest one is the blog make-over. I had my blog theme changed – huge thanks to Kai! I changed my blog timeline from Lifestyle and Travel Blog to Personal and Travel Blog. I messed around with a few things here and there like my sidebar, header, footer, and about me page – but yes, some things will still be changing. What you haven’t seen is that I will also be changing a few things about my future (and even past) contents. I’m going for a more personal route now, and I’m not just gonna be talking about my major travels now. So, buckle up, friends, my future posts will be like… this one.

How to Apply for a Korea Tourist VISA for Filipino Employees

How To Apply for a Korea Touritst Visa Filipino Employees; Richel Goes Places


Oh, VISAs. The bane of travelers hailing from third world country. Wouldn’t it be better if we just have to show proof of financial standings and a return ticket to visit any country we want? Alas, that is not the case. Applying for a VISA is a tricky business. There’s never a guarantee you’ll have one; people who have hundreds of thousands in the bank and return tickets still get denied. Which is why I was a wreck when it was my turn to apply for a Korean VISA; the first VISA application I’ve ever done.

Fortunately, my VISA was approved. Yey! And so were my companions. I’ve heard Korean VISAs are one of the easiest to get, but I also know of people who got denied one. I figured I’ll start my Korean travel series with a guide on how to get a South Korea Tourist VISA for Filipino employees.

Korea Photobook + Top 5 Memories

It’s been three months since I visited Korea but I still laugh at the memories we have created at that country. It’s already unforgettable since this is where I traveled solo for the first time – even if it was only for a short 1.5 days, but even more so when my friend and her family arrived. You’d probably seen her around in my blog since I travelled to Hong Kong and other local places with her.

Weekend Getaway: Baler, Aurora (Part 2)


Here’s part two of my Baler travel posts. I’ve been thinking of all those Filipinos and Filipinas who have visited all the 81 provinces in the Philippines, and I’m trying to figure out how many provinces I’ve been to myself – it’s 11, by the way. While it is not my goal to visit all the provinces in the country, I still want to go to as many as I can. Anyhow, here are the two more places I visited when we were in Baler, Aurora.
