Cheonggyecheon Stream & Lantern Festival

I know it’s been a while since I made a post. A lot has been going on. But before I catch you all up to speed on the details of my life (Which are probably way more accessible on Facebook than here. I’ve realized I had dozens of photos I haven’t posted from the past and experiences I’ve nearly forgotten to write about. One of them being the magnificent Cheonggyecheon Stream.

Bangkok 1 – Khaosan Road

I’ve waited far too long to write about Bangkok Thailand. So while I’m only working about four hours a day for summer camp I think I’ll take the time now to introduce the second country I went to on vacation. I should start with the place I hung out the most, Khaosan Road. This place has been dubbed the Gateway to Southeast Asia, and it was a bright colorful street full of interesting characters sights and sounds. And albeit a very ‘touristy’ part of the town it was an experience just visiting.

Status Update

Hello everyone!

I’m sorry for the long delay in this post. Let it be known that quite a lot has happened to me since my last post (one which ironically wasn’t even about Korea), unfortunately certain events (coupled with a bit of laziness) had prevented me from writing much (or at all). But I owe it to my friends and family back at home who have supported me (and just generally wondered if I’m still alive) to let them know whats going on in the land best known for Kimchi. This post will be a hodge podge of topics and whatever comes to mind. It won’t have many pictures but thats because the next post needs to have more cool stuff.

Japan 5 (Final)

Well sorry to say that the Japanese blog posts are at an end.  I had planned one more post but that seems so long ago and my recen trip to Thailand has replaced old memories with fresh experiences than I am eager to tell.  But for this post I’m going to focus on the little things that slipped through the cracks. The times that I was taken by the sights and sounds in the city itself  as opposed to the people.

Weekends in Korea

The lack of updates to the blog has been pretty appalling. But make no mistake, just because the blog has been pretty dry doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing anything. It’s quite the opposite. So I thought it’d be a good idea to let you guys in on some of the weekends I’ve been having over here.

These events all occurred some time in the past so It’s hard to keep the details together. But I’ll try my hardest to sort them from most to least recent. Read more of this post

The 4th of July

I remember when I was back in middle School one of my teachers gave us a list of riddles. One of them was “Do they have the 4th of July in China?” I would naturally say “No.” But that was wrong. July 4th is on everyone’s calendar even though they won’t call it Independence Day. I haven’t been to China (yet), but I know that the statement is true for Korea. Read more of this post

Meanwhile in Korea…

Hey guys I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard some updated news from me and I was pretty bad about missing last weeks post. It’s ironic too because I had just told my brother that I would be posting up every single Friday and I just missed one. But that’s the way things go sometimes. I’ve been really busy with teaching and trying to keep an active social life, but I think I should talk about current events happening to me. I will still talk about the Japan trip (I have one last Blogs to write before I’m done talking about that and right now it’s looking like a pretty short blog) but I want to change gears and talk about the here and now.
