The Wide World: Traveling Outside Korea

I made a calendar before I left for my winter vacation. Littered with notes in the margins about confirming flights, double checking bus schedules, and detailing directions to hostel addresses, I mapped out a two week excursion to three very different places: Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Sitting at my desk at school, looking at the creased page full of travel details, I couldn’t wrap my mind around what those two weeks would be like. And, as I sit here again behind my desk in South Korea, I can’t fathom how those two weeks held so many memorable miles, random bruises, pale misty mornings, blazing noon heatwaves, and cheap, delicious street food. My short time traveling over those two weeks took me on an incredible journey that felt like it spanned two months. Here’s some highlights of it.

Evan and Rachel’s Passport Tag!

As you know we recently went on a short trip to Japan! While going through immigration and looking through our passports, I realized that I hadn’t left Korea in over a YEAR!! I was definitely ready for a vacation, even if it was only 3 days!

It’s always fun to look through my passport and reminisce about all of the wonderful places I’ve had the opportunity to visit in the past 5 years. SO I had the idea to make a passport tag! I think looking at other travelers passports and hearing their stories is so interesting. Please feel free to answer the tag questions in the comments or upload your own video as a video response on our youtube channel! We’d love to hear from you.

QUESTIONS:
1. What is your most recent stamp?
2. What was your first stamp?
3. What’s your coolest looking stamp?
4. What’s the most meaningful stamp?
5. What was the most difficult stamp to get?


Queer Links from the Week


Queer Links from the Week

Goa Gaja and the Traditional Art Market!

I hope you're not sick of seeing photos of temples yet, because there are temples galore around this place, and when you have two photographers together, you're gonna end up with a lot of pictures!  Today we checked out Goa Gaja, built in the 9th century (801-900), about 5-10 minutes south east of Ubud.

Sari Organik Restaurant... a must see in Ubud!

I would never normally do an entire blog post about a restaurant, but holy schmolies... this place NEEDS it's own blog post!  Thanks to Lonely Planet, we navigated through 20 minutes of paths leading through rice fields to this gem of a restaurant, set right smack dab in the middle of rice fields as far as the eye can see in every direction!

Durian in South Korea

I was walking down the streets of Sorae on Wednesday afternoon and found this truck loaded with durian. It was the first time I’ve seen durian being sold in Korea, so I got excited to take a photo and show it to my husband. Hubby and I are not crazy about this fruit, but I remember our ordeal trying to find one in the Philippines when durian was not in season.
