  • Getting Free Bibimbap in Korea | 비빔밥 먹방

    Earlier this year I took a trip to a Korean temple to get some free Bibimbap [비빔밥]. Yes, "free." I wanted to film my experience going there, and also to talk about the dish.

    Also you might notice that this video is longer than my usual food videos. It's a different video style that I wanted to try once. If you like it, I might make more food and travel videos in this style.

    Check it out~!

  • My ‘Private Stash:’ The Korea Chronicles, 2005-2012, Part One

    It’s 2 p.m. at Bricks Coffee in Seomyeon, Busan. I have a “Dutch Americano,” which was just dutch-styled coffee extract alongside a mug of hot water. So, coffee. It’s pretty good. Clouds have come in and it looks like rain outside the window of this second floor but no one is carrying an umbrella, not even one “just in case” paranoid person. I think my bicycle is safe.

    I’m diving into my “private stash” of writings from my first, second and the time leading into my third time in South Korea. It’s called the Korea Chronicles and its access is not locked so, if you care, if you find it, by all means enjoy. I won’t be offended.


  • Black Friday Deals and My New Preset Pack

    Time is running out on my Black Friday Campaign. However, I have extended it until Friday to make sure that no one misses out on the savings. I know that it sounds like a plug but to be honest, I really want people to check out these courses. Over the last few months, I have been doing a number of photowalks and a lot of people have been asking about editing and cinemagraphs. I’ve realized that not many people know about the courses that I have available.

  • Korean PC 방 Tour | Internet Cafes

    PC방 ("PC-BANG") are everywhere in Korea. They're on nearly every street in populated areas of cities, and they're even in small cities. If you've never seen one before, a PC방 is an "internet cafe" in Korea. But they might be a bit different from other internet cafes you've seen before. People of all ages can visit a PC방 to play games, hang out (while mostly sitting down) with friends, and even order food.

    So instead of going alone, I brought along my good friend 소영 (So-yeong).

  • Riding El Chepe: Part 2

    Into the Canyon

    I jumped off of El Chepe at the town of Bahuichivo — a picturesque hamlet nestled among the mountain pines — and immediately came across three white women carrying big packs. They had been in my train car, and from the sound of their language, I pinpointed them as Dutch. Years of meeting travelers in Southeast Asia had attuned my ear when it came to picking out accents and languages, and Dutch was one of those that I just knew right away.

  • Riding El Chepe: Part 3

    Back on the Train

    As the train pulled out of Bahuichivo, memories of the past several days flashed before me: the boozy, musical afternoon in the El Fuerte cantina; the enchanting train ride into the mountains; the close shave with death on the narrow road; the splendid chaos and grandeur of Urique and the canyon it calls home. All of it added up to a heady string of hours, the kind of travel I hadn’t properly tasted for years now.

  • What I REALLY Didn't Like About Teaching English In Korea

    christian crosses korea

    One of the first things that I noticed about teaching in Korea was that there were so many Christians. I mean look at the picture above. That's what the skyline in most Korean cities looks like. What do you see?

    Crosses.

    There's lots of Christians in Korea

    There are sooo many churches and so many brainwashed Christians. According to some numbers they are 30% of the population in Korea.

    The two people that I disliked the most while I taught in Korea were my Korean co-teacher in a public school that I taught in and my manager in a hagwon that I worked in. And guess what they both had in common?

    They were Christians. Dogmatic Christians.
