Hiking the Fairytale Land That is Seoraksan National Park

Exactly five months ago, my friend Katrina told me about this magical place her friend had gone hiking in Korea – Seoraksan National Park. I’ve been obsessed with the place ever since – constantly Googling and researching it, incessantly checking #Seoraksan on Instagram, and trying to find the PERFECT weekend to go. I learned that […]

Busan Fireworks Festival – Round 2

I’ve probably mentioned this a dozen and a half times, but I’m obsessed with the beach. And drinking. And fireworks. And so when you combine all three of these things into an amazing festival, it’s like Christmas-fricken-morning. I raved about the Busan Fireworks Festival last year with good reason – it was abso-effin’-lutely AMAZING. Mind-blowing. […]

One Week in Paradise | Malapascua Island, Philippines

We were given one full week off of work for summer vacation (don’t ever tell me teachers have it easy) and we knew exactly where we wanted to spend it: the PHILIPPINES. Because what more do you want from a summer getaway than perfect beaches, incredible scuba diving and dirt cheap rum&cokes? Getting to Malapascua Island: […]

Gamcheon Culture Village – Santorini of Korea

This past week was Chuseok (the Korean version of Thanksgiving, but 3 glorious days + the weekend) and my plans were to explore different areas of Busan and to practice using my DSLR (and when I say “practice”, I mean “learn-how-to-use-after-2.5-years”). Four days into the holiday and I had yet to leave my beach bubble […]

10 Things I Love About Korea

After spending some time with a friend in Tokyo this summer, I realized (or was more told) that I’m generally pretty negative about Korea. While everyone vents about work and many people abroad have frustrations with the cultural differences, this should be no excuse for me to show Korea in such an unfavorable light when […]

Malapascua, Philippines – #instaSneakPeak

Since it’s already August tomorrow and I didn’t want to let July slip away without a single post (whoops! Time flies when you’re lazily laying on the beach every weekend), here’s a glimpse of our short holiday at the beautiful island of Malapascua – just north of Cebu in the Philippines. And just so you […]

My Newfound Obsession with ACROYOGA

If we’re Facebook friends or if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably gotten sufficiently annoyed and sick of my incessant #AcroYoga posts and pictures. #Sorrythatimnotsorry, but AcroYoga is THE SHIT. It’s an intense workout, it’s SO MUCH FUN and it looks fricken awesome. To be honest, it’s a lot easier than it looks. But sometimes […]

A Bike Ride a Day Keeps the Doctor Away | Part II

This past weekend rivaled my previous “Perfect Weekend in Busan” since making the awesome discovery that Busan has FREE bike rentals all over the city. About a decade ago, people started getting really concerned about the sketchy air quality and so the city has been opening up free bike rental shops over the years to encourage more […]
