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.


How to enjoy the Coolest Water Sports in the middle of Seoul: let’s flyboard on Han River!

Summer in Korea is humid and hot. One of the best ways to fight against the hot hot summer is definitely WATER SPORTS!

One of Trazy’s customers, Yoonhee C, went on a one fine day in June to explore what exactly flyboarding is.

I visited Jamwon Hangang Park to ride flyboard. The staffs are very kind and you can the instructions on how to prepare the ride in many languages (English, Chinese, Japanese). The staffs are fluent in English so foreigners don’t have to worry about the language problem.

It’s All in the Blue

 

Whenever I arrive in Jumunjin (home of Herself if you’re not already in the know), one of the first things I always look to do is to go down to the beach. This would make sense to most people as a goal when you arrive in a coastal town, right? But I like to think I’m different because I do it regardless of the weather.


What a Drip!

Today, while finishing my friends’ Christmas gift,

(which I was very excited about how well it turned out) I decided to make some potpourri.

My Mom likes to boil potpourri on the stove in the wintertime, and who doesn’t enjoy a nice smelling home, so I thought I would follow suit.  I used some oranges that had been hiding in the back of my fridge and had shriveled up, some dried rosemary (more than I had planned since a bunch spilled out), and a little bit of vanilla extract.


No Naps Allowed: Hamilton Hotel Pool in Itaewon


natural disaster.

For many people the Thai floods were just another story in the news, and for many here in Thailand they came and went quickly. Unfortunately for thousands, including me, they were a very grim reality that lasted for months, something we are still dealing with, long after the headlines are gone. I have been displaced from my new home for 2 months now but the waters have finally receded and we are able to go out an assess the damages. Driving through Nonthaburi, looking for a home, I wish I had brought a face mask to shield myself from the smells, dust and dirt that float through the air. It is apocalyptic out there and I am so lucky to have been able to escape. The devastation cannot be felt through pictures, it is something you have to witness and this being my first real natural disaster, it is like nothing I have ever seen in real life. Life goes on and we will all be getting back to our normal lives soon... but it is slow coming and a lot of work must be done.
