While traveling, I like to visit weird things, eat strange foods, and if you make me late for a train, plane, or bus….I might start yelling at you. Regardless, I’ve somehow convinced my boyfriend, Simon, to travel with me to some pretty exotic places in the year to come.
I love food, and there aren’t many things I don’t like or won’t try. I also think one of the best parts about traveling, is eating. Therefore, to sum up some of my culinary travels I will be starting a series of posts called Five Bites. Each of these posts will include 5 of my […]
I usually come back from a night out in Hongdae with three things. Black feet, an empty wallet and embarrassing memories. All of these can be attributed to myself, but I usually blame it on wearing sandals in grimy dive bars all night, cheap street cocktails and abundant kebab stands. (In no particular order). I […]
I’ve traveled through Central America, Argentina and Ecuador on buses. I wouldn’t have traveled around any other way. While each region has differences in their bus systems, there are many things to be said about traveling Latin American by bus. Here is my comprehensive round-up for making your Latin American travel plans a reality on […]
It has almost been a year and a half that I have been living in Korea. Wow. If you know me personally, then you probably already know this.. Korea and I don’t always get along. If I have learned one thing here, it is that living in a foreign country continuously presents challenges. For some, […]
I am new to having my own domain, and during the last few weeks I have been working out kinks, switching themes, and working on the layout. While caught up on all of this, a post or two may have accidentally been published. When I caught the mistake, I made it private, but not before […]
Ever since I switched from my old blog to this site, I’ve gotten serious about social media, consistent blogging, photo editng; the whole lot. Being on twitter has exposed me to so many amazing travel bloggers and also…travel blogging contests. One taking over my twitter feed is the Capture the Colour Contest by TravelSupermarket.com. The prizes are […]
The roosters are crowing and the sun is coming up. As I pry open my heavy eyelids, I can see some fishermen walking towards the water. My back hurts; I’ve just spent 7 hours on a bus through the night, and 2 hours sleeping on a wooden bench waiting for the ferry office in Kuala […]
Every summer in Korea, masses migrate to the east coast to inflict chaos and spread mud over the small town of Boryeong. The Boryeong Mud Festival runs for 2 weeks on the nice stretch of Daecheon Beach. The mud is believed to have beneficial effects on the skin, and is trucked in from nearby mud flats.
This week I turn 24. But I am not sure how this happened. In my mind I was supposed to be 22 forever. Now 24 is approaching and I don’t know how to feel. I’m happy but confused, content but insecure. And why do I keep finding this one grey hair in my bangs?!
It’s 3:30 a.m. and I’m surprisingly alert. Since moving to Seoul, this hasn’t been a strange time to be awake on a weekend. But this time it is completely different. I’m supposed to be fully focused, facing straight ahead, but I can’t help but look around. The chanting monks continue with the mantra; an incomprehensible melody […]
The faces of the Andean Highlands are those of a modern contradiction. A charming and radiant smile peers through a dirty and fatigued face. A striking tapestry worn on the shoulders of a woman is as piercing as the look in her eyes, but the tired wrinkles tell another story. A subtle glance from one […]
