Unfiltered (Summary)

Hello all!

I have decided to begin a blog segment which will be going by the name Unfiltered: Unraveling Truths About Traveling.

This segment will be largely focusing on others who travel around the world. The main premise will be that I have asked certain individuals some questions about traveling and they will be answering those questions. This way, I hope to not only share with you the perspectives and opinions of others on traveling, but to also help you get to know bloggers, vloggers, and travelers that you may not have heard of yet.

The first post of this segment will be up on June 7th and I am beyond excited to share with you the insights of those who will be taking part in this segment.



What to pack on your next trip

We only ever read and talk about the material aspects of what we need to pack for our next trip.

Laptop? Check!
Map? Check!
Clothes? I sure hope so!

But these aren’t the most important things we need to take with ourselves on our next trip. Those online lists or YouTube videos explaining the essentials to pack in your suitcase often miss out on the most essential elements that you need to take with you.

So what could those be?
Without further ado, here are the 4 most necessary things that you need to bring with you on your next trip: Continue reading “What to pack on your next trip”

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”
