Vietnam–Vibrant & Yummy Food

I'm finalizing this post at the airport as I sit awaiting my flight to Thailand. Figured it was time to post my pics from Vietnam. In all honesty I wasn't planning to share my Vietnam pics because I didn't see the point. I have moments like this sometimes where I get so turned off by …

Visiting home after a year abroad…

The Chuseok holiday (Korean Thanksgiving) this year gave me about 12 days off from work so I took the time to go back to North America. To say it was so nice being home is an understatement. It really didn't hit me until I got back, and was surrounded by family and friends, how much …

Bali was beautiful and somewhat overrated.

As expected, Bali was beautiful. I had a few days off the first week of May, also known as golden week here in Korea, so I broke the bank back in February purchasing my plane ticket and accommodations. Flights from Korea, at that time, were much more expensive because of the holiday. I was in Bali …

Taking a trip doesn’t always have to involve a flight… Weekend in Seoul

This trip to Seoul couldn't have come at a better time. It's been about 4 months since my last trip, outside of Korea (see Hong Kong + Day 1 in Joburg), so visiting Seoul felt a little like I'd left Korea. Exactly what I needed. Sometimes all it takes is a change of scenery and …

Cape Town + Robben Island – Final pics

What I liked the most about Cape Town was the African art, the Congolese live music, being by the water; as well as, the cool African people I met in Obz. What I disliked was the predominant European influences that had me really confused as to where I was sometimes. If I were to try …

Day 4, Soweto gave me life!

On January 8th, it was the ANC political party, 105th anniversary, of the liberation movement. There was a ceremony held at the Orlando Stadium, that we didn't make it to, but we made it for the festivities after. The streets of Soweto were packed! As soon as I got out of the car the vibe …

Joburg, Day 3 — Things started getting heavy.

At this point in my trip i was beginning to adjust to my surroundings but yet seeing things that were agitating my mind. In regards to South Africa's history I think it's very important to come and see for yourself versus going based on what we've been sold in the media about the struggle. The …

Joburg, Day 2 – Art +Family

Day 2, I ventured out on my own, downtown Joburg, to visit two galleries. One gallery turned out to be closed without notice. Nonetheless, I was glad to have at least been able to visit one. I also met up with my cousin for lunch and then he took me around to his old neighbourhood …

Hong Kong + Day 1 in Joburg

Bless my heart for actually thinking that I'd be able to share all the pics from my trip at once. Lol! Sooo I'll be sharing 1 or 2 days at a time. First up is my 12 hour layover in Hong Kong where i visited the Giant Buddha on Lantau Island. It was the perfect …
