Hi guys, I haven’t done a life update post in forever. As you might have noticed, I have been posting so irregularly and inconsistently these past couple of weeks. Work has been busy, I’ve travelled a bit on the weekends, and I went back to another hobby that is frankly taking up so much of my time. I won’t talk about that other hobby since that’s more of my guilty pleasure – but I’ll say that it sure helped my English skillzz.
For this life lately update, I’ll be talking about my 2016 travel plans – as inspired by Aileen’s latest blog post. It also gives me a timeline on what I have to look forward to as my planner is already so whacked with all the plans (and poems and lyrics) I wrote on it.
Calatagan, Batangas City, PH. Vitamin sea with my mother’s side of the family. In which I saw plenty of weird sea creatures and somehow stepped on a sea urchin. Blog post will be up soon.
Venice Piazza, McKinley, PH. A taste of Italy. Pastel houses, river boats. European vibes. Blog post will also be up soon.
Hong Kong. 4D3N trip with my college friends. Our first time out of the country and with no parental guidance whatsoever. I made the itinerary and there are so many things we have to do with a short amount of time. I predict running after buses and/or trains.
Baguio, PH. Strawberry picking with my officemates and visiting a known haunted house. Wish me luck?
Pinatubo, PH. Planned hike with my uncle and aunt.
Calaguas, PH. Proposed trip with my college friend and her officemates. I’m not sure where Calaguas is, but let’s go.
Singapore. 9-days vacation with the fambam. I only just found out about the extreme bungie and swings rides at Clarke Quay so that’s where I’ll be. And for the first time ever, Battlestar Galactica at Universal Studios Singapore will be open while I’m there. (Please don’t let this jinx that.)
May-August (I haven’t plotted the dates yet.)
Fortune Island, Batangas, PH. A taste of Greek – which I am desperate for! Been planning for this trip since last year! Hopefully it’ll push through around summer.
Baler, Aurora. I’m trying to kick off an item from my 7 Things I Have Never Done Before post. I want to try out some surfing.
100 Islands, Pangasinan, PH. And speaking off kicking things off a list, I want to cliff dive from one of the islands in here. Been planning for this since last year, too.
Masungi Georeserve, Rizal, PH. I was supposed to celebrate my 21st at Singapore but since we’re already going on April… Change of plans. And the place looks amazing! I hope there’ll be no storm at this time.
South Korea. 5D4N stay to have a taste of autumn with my college buddies – again. If my VISA got denied, you guys will know. I’ll cry about it, lol.
That’s… it! So many things to be excited about – and so many travels I still have to save up for, tbh. This is why I was so keen on saving up last year! Haha! My post last year should have been called, “How I Saved Up 100K In a Year to Travel for Next Year.”
Also, I can’t wait for the year where my travel plans will include Europe or America. That’s probably on or before 2020, thus, my, #RichelGoesToEurope2020 travel goals.
Where will you be going this year?
