Blue beaches of Taiwan

Pleasant 25 degree C temperature, beautiful blue beaches, yummy street food 4 for under $10! Taiwan still remains an awesome undiscovered paradise. Our 5 day trip to Taiwan was just too good because of the fact we had nothing much to do except walk the sandy beaches, eat until until our hearts content and chat away without the interruptions from the gadgets. Great family bonding time.

My First Month in Photos

I read about it happening to many other people who came to teach in Korea before me, and then I succumbed to the same phenomena. Due to jetlag, a lack of internet, and just getting acclimated to my new life here, my blog has sort of fallen to the wayside. I’ve also been so busy DOING things that I haven’t had time to write about most of it! So as a peace offering, here are some pictures that best capture what I’ve been up to during my first month in Korea!

Muuido Island: Sea and Sand for the Weary Waegookin



Maybe it's just me but the weather has been especially pleasant here in Korea for this time of year. The rainy season is starting a bit later than usual and the temperatures, particularly in the mornings and evenings, have been enjoyable. Hope I'm not jinxing anything here.

A couple friends and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and planned a weekend camping trip to Muuido, a small island located near Incheon International Airport. The peninsula's western coast often catches a lot of flak for its less than impressive beaches and lackluster views. As we soon learned, however, Muuido is just as enjoyable as the country's better known coastal destinations and is the perfect place to waste away a lazy summer weekend.

Is That An Effigy In Your Pocket? The Phallus Shrine of Railay

IT WAS ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL MORNING in Thailand. Except we were in Ao Nang. And Ao Nang is a shit town. So we caught a longboat over to Railay and rented out a kayak for a few hours. We scuttled around by the coast for a while, pissing about between the karst peaks in the sea, peering inside caverns, pondering the strange creatures under the sea, and all the while increasing our chances of skin cancer.

It was great.

One Month and a Bit: photos from Korea, August to October, 2013

As I said, I’ve been back in Korea for a little over a month and a bit. Plenty has happened, including Chuseok, the IAK ceili, a trip to Herself’s grandmother’s farm, walks into and out of work, and a little bit of a trip to a theme park.

Here is a simple photo update of the past 40 odd days. Some have had some editing, others go up in their natural state, so to speak.

Days of Chuseok

The Chuseok holiday is ending slowly here. All that is left is the rest of the weekend, but that’s not really Chuseok. Most businesses will open up tomorrow in the hope of catching those desperate to restock their fridge and fill their belly with something other than Chuseok food.

Of course we suffer in Korea this year because Chuseok, a three day holiday, has fallen on a Thursday, so the three days around it also meld into Saturday and Sunday making it a nice rounded five day break. There will be a very slow and more unenthusiastic than usual start to work all around the country this Monday.


Follow Us Around Haeundae!

Follow Us Around videos are highly requested, and we love filming them! It feels like we’re hanging out all day. :) On this day we wandered around Haeundae, where we hadn’t visited since before summer! We like it a lot more without the throngs of people in the summer. We could probably do a couple “Follow Us Around Haeundae” videos that show you different areas of the neighborhood.

In this video we covered Haeundae station, the market, the area around Paradise Hotel, and the temple by the sea, Haedong Yonggungsa! Hope you enjoyed the video, and stay tuned for more “Follow Us Around” videos! If you have any neighborhood requests, let us know!
