7 Reasons Why Malaysia Is Awesome

If you haven’t been to Malaysia yet, you’re doing it wrong. “It” being anything from adventure activities, lounging at the beach, appreciating architecture and history, eating foreign cuisine, and/or experiencing cultural diversity. One of the most underrated travel destinations in Southeast Asia, this place has it all! Below are 6 reasons why Malaysia should be next on your traveler’s bucket list.

Things you must do in Korea during Summer Holiday

♬Hot summer. Hot, hot, summer, summer♬ Like the lyrics of f(x)’s song “Hot Summer,” it is speechlessly hot in Korea. Some people in Jeju even make a joke that Jeju is “Jefrica” now. However, it doesn’t mean that you have nothing to enjoy but the cool breeze from an air conditioner at home. We’ve prepared Summer fun to enjoy that can be hard to find in other seasons.

11-Day Trip to Thailand Budget

Below is a detailed list of how my budget shook out while traveling for 11 days in Thailand from February 14-25, 2015! When looking at the expenses, keep in mind that I was solo traveling (so all expenditures are for 1 person), it was Lunar New Year (one of the busiest times of the high season in Southeast Asia), and that the hostels/resorts where I stayed were priced in the mid-range of what I could find. I didn’t have the money for 5-star accomodations, but I didn’t need/want to rough it too much either. And while I didn’t go too crazy on food and drinks, I did spend quite a bit on activities in Koh Lanta a few times (not realizing Koh Lanta was such a tourist/resort island ahead of time, it was a bit more expensive than I was expecting). In Bangkok, I opted for the free sightseeing and just exploring the city, rather than the paid attractions, because of the prices and crowds.


Donut Miss Your Flight

2/14/15 – Incheon International Airport

“Excuse me! Sorry! Excuse me! Excuse me!” Trying to keep up with my sprinting legs, these words flew out of my mouth as I barreled through the bowels of the international departures terminal. My 40-liter backpack bounced awkwardly with each massive stride, despite the white knuckle grip I had on the straps to keep it as close to me as possible. Families and businessmen came into focus only long enough for me to gauge whether to weave right or left. Unwilling to rid my side of the cramp that had developed since passing the food court, I held my pace as I closed in on Terminal E – Gate 6, hoping like crazy that Terminal E – Gate 6 wouldn’t close on me


Under the Andaman Sea: Snorkeling in Koh Lanta & Koh Phi Phi

I just got back from an awesome 10 day getaway in Thailand, part of which I spent hopping between some small islands near Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi. In addition to swimming through a cave and lounging (in the shade) on white sandy beaches, I also did some snorkeling! While it may not be the most amazing snorkeling footage ever, it was still fun to play around with the GoPro!

English Camp in Korea IS Vacation (so I’m told)

It’s that time of the semester.

English camp time.

The 2 weeks following the end of both the spring and fall semesters is English Camp. It’s also when all the teachers in the school begin their vacations.

That’s right; for the two weeks that I’ll be conducting English camp, everyone else will be at home with family, traveling somewhere, or drunk. Maybe all three.

The days following the end of English camp are what comprise our “vacation” time as EPIK/public school NETs. It comes out to 8 days in the winter and 10 in the summer.
