Winter in Korea

Vacation is over, Korea is feeling cold, and I think I have a case of the Winter Doldrums. But I’m not too worried because it is a proven fact that cupcakes are an age-old cure for the Winter Doldrums.  DSC01145

And cupcakes with old friends is an even better remedy (the Banana Velvet cupcake worked wonders for me).

Sledding, Kinda

20130125_123359

Last week for our January Field Trip, we went sledding.  Or, more accurately we went to an amusement park and where we slid down a slightly snowy/icy hill twice.  I was too busy wrangling kids, making sure no one was lost,  and having fun with our limited sledding that I took maybe a total of 3 photos.  So all of the pictures are from my school. Also I love that Clara is in mid-yawn in this picture.

Ta Prohm

Ta Prohm was one of my favorite temples that I visited in Cambodia, and it’s not too surprising. Along with Bayon, Ta Prohm had that feeling of being a lost temple filled with potential discovery, which I loved.

Even when it was swarming with tour groups (a lot of which were Korean), there were plenty of nooks and crannies ripe for exploring away from the crowds.


I’m A Tree Hugger

I started writing about Ta Prohm, but looking through my pictures there was so many ones I liked, and so much to talk about I didn’t know where to start.  In the end I felt that I needed split it up so one post wouldn’t have 50 pictures in it.

Ta Prohm was the only temple my friend Russ and I ended up going to twice, and was the last temple we visited before leaving Siem Reap so I have a lot of pictures and a lot of things to talk about.


Happy Sunday

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend, and I just wanted to give you a bit of a preview of tomorrow’s post and one of my favorite temples in Cambodia, Ta Prohm.  There will even be a dinosaur involved.

P.S. Trees are awesome!


Souvenir Shopping

I didn’t buy much in the way of things while I was in Cambodia, but the ‘souvenirs’ that took up the most space in my backpack were food.  I’ve mentioned it before, but I love going into supermarkets and stores in other countries, even convenience stores.  Markets are amazing, but there’s something about getting a peek into the daily lives and shopping habits of other people who I love.In Koh Kong I got some strange ice cream from a supermarket that I still don’t know the flavor of, in Siem Reap while getting snacks for a twelve-hour bus ride I found fantastic (and loud) Kettle Chips.

I Want To Go To There

I walk by this cafe on my way home from work all the time and I really want to go check it out. Based on the walk way alone it has to be awesome, right?

Now if only I could remember this place when I’m not starving for dinner and dragging my tired teacher self home to where my bed and my comfy pants live. Maybe on an upcoming writing outing.

Chop Chop

Yesterday, I cut off all my hair.  Or more accurately, I cut off over 10 inches of my hair.  To start my 27 Things list off on the right foot, I decided last night to do something I had been wanting to do for a while, cut my hair and donate it to Locks of Love. DSC00960


27 Things to Do Before I Turn 27

Today is my half birthday.  I remembered it was coming up a few days ago.  I’m not sure if it was all the talk of New Year’s Resolutions, this blog awesome blog I came across the other day, or my love of a good list that helped make this decision.  It was probably a combo of all three.


Bayon

After a stunning sunrise, and some pancakes at the “Lady Gaga” food tent near the lake, we headed off to the nearby temple of Bayon.

Bayon and Ta Prohm were my two favorite temples of the whole trip.  Bayon, or ‘that one temple with all the faces’, really felt and looked unreal.  The fact that it’s a Buddhist temple amongst a lot of Hindu temples does make it stand out, but it really was more than that.
