Why is traveling important?

Traveling has been a tool for my development; it has allowed me to flourish both mentally and spiritually. I can’t even begin to express how very thankful I am for having been given this opportunity to explore the world and learn.

For those who are still on the fence about wanting to travel, let me give you five reasons why you should pack your bags and set off on an adventure out of your comfort zone. Continue reading “Why is traveling important?”

10 Cultural Differences: Korea vs. Canada

In this blog post I would like to share with you all some things that I noticed about Seoul that were different from what I am used to experiencing in Canada.

Please note that I was only in Seoul for 10 days, so the observations I will be talking about are solely based on those 10 days. I personally do not think that 10 days is anywhere near enough time to make any conclusions about a culture, and that is not what I will be doing. Instead, I will be presenting what I experienced and witnessed during my 10-day trip. Continue reading “10 Cultural Differences: Korea vs. Canada”

Discovering Yongsan

A lot of people just like to stick to the main attractions of a city when they go traveling. For example, if they go to France, they just stick to going to the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.

I, on the other hand, love to explore the portions of cities that have been untouched by tourists. That little coffee shop that no one knows about? I’ll find it. That street that is hidden from the main road? I’ll walk it. That little pond with the beautiful view and peaceful atmosphere? I’ll sit by it and reflect.

Yes, of course I will go visit the main attractions of the city I’m visiting; however, I always like to experience what those native to the city experience and enjoy in their everyday life.

And that, is what I found Yongsan to be like. It was that part of Seoul that remained mostly untouched by tourists. Continue reading “Discovering Yongsan”

You had me sold at “Ugly, but tasty riceballs”

One thing I love about going to a country where English isn’t the first language is seeing the different things written in English that either A) don’t make any sense or B) make sense, but probably should be written in a different way.

Although I saw quite a lot of this in Korea (and it made my days exploring so much more enjoyable), I only ended up documenting four instances of it – so here they are! I hope you’ll have a good chuckle just as I did when coming across them. Continue reading “You had me sold at “Ugly, but tasty riceballs””
