Coffee in 분당: 가비양

Before we went into 물냉면 restaurant for lunch, I happened to glance up the road and saw what looked like a sign with a pour-over coffee setup on it. I assumed it was a decent cafe and made a mental note to come back to it after we were done eating. An hour later our … Continue reading

In Korea, with Blog Changes

Hello friends! I have officially touched down in Korea; after 20 grueling hours of travel, 2 layovers, and a bus ride later, I am safely at my grandparents house, relaxing before I go off WWOOFing for a month. In the 24 hours that I’ve been here, Korea has already been so good to me. It’s … Continue reading

august 12: from incheon to newark

I know, I know; I came home 2 days ago so this post is most definitely overdue. But with all the running around I’ve been doing, going to the doctor’s, the orthodontist’s, and shopping for college I haven’t had time to blog since I’ve come back to the States. I won’t be blogging for a … Continue reading

july 11: lotte world & the last supper

I’M HOMEEEEE!!!! That’s right folks, I’m back in New Jersey for the first time in 5 weeks. Wow, it feels good to be back; I’ve been going around hugging all my furniture because I missed my house so much. I can’t believe how foreign my house looks to me right now… I still have one … Continue reading

july 10: raining in seoul’s francetown

I love the rain. I adore everything about it, from the sound that it makes as it hits the rooftops to the dark, foreboding clouds that cover the sky right before a storm. And in Korea you get a lot of rain, especially in the few weeks during the middle of summer known as sohnagee season. Sonahgees … Continue reading

july 9: the prettiest wallpaper and coffee bingsoo

Wallpaper has got to be one of the prettiest places I’ve been to in Korea, and I’ve seen a lot of cute cafes/bistros/stores here. It’s the biggest cafe that I’ve been to, with 2 floors and a 3rd one in the works. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the people who work … Continue reading

august 8: the best moolnengmyun in korea

Although my mom, my sister and I were supposed to go to church on Sunday, the first we thing we actually did that morning was go to a cafe. Because really, what else is there to do on a Sunday morning when all the shops are close and you only have an hour to kill? … Continue reading

july 7: sujebi in samcheongdong

It feels like over the past month, I’ve explored almost every town, tourist attraction and shopping district that Seoul has to offer. But that’s OBVIOUSLY not true because just this past Saturday I went to a place called Samcheongdong that I’ve never heard of before. It’s actually really close to Insadong and the KyungBookGoong; you … Continue reading

august 5 & 6: rawr. i eat animals.

You guys must be getting sick of these multi-course Korean-fusion meals by now, since that’s pretty much the only thing I eat when I go out to meet relatives. Don’t get me wrong, it all tastes good, but it does get a little repetitive after a while and the courses are pretty similar. Since you … Continue reading

pyeongchang day 3: local food is the best food

Our last day at PyeongChang, the only thing we really did at Phoenix Park was check out of the hotel. Exciting, ain’t it? Yeah, well it’s about to get EVEN BETTER because the rest of that day was specially reserved for doing stuffs in the local PyeongChang area. Like going to a Korean Buddhist temple.

In the Past…
