You do know that I have lots to tell you about Korea. How it was one of the best places I've been to. Granted, Seoul and Busan are beautiful places with nary any trash in sight (lots of cigarette butts though) and wide roads and amazing sights. But the best for me is discovering how kind and … Continue reading My Week in Seoul in Photos (Days 67-71 of Project 365)
Just saying a quick "hi!" from freezing Busan! It's cold but the place is all good. The people are very kind and always smiling, especially the guy who helped us find our way to Busan station. Will post updates tomorrow when I take the KTX from Busan to Seoul. Until then, keep safe people!

Taiwan
The universe is nice to me today. Even if I had to kill myself working earlier, I am finally rewarded with the best possible gift ever: This trip has been in the offing for more than a year already, thanks to JetStar Airways Easter Sale, I am finally going back to this island nation that … Continue reading Guess who’s going to SG?
