Valentine’s Day in Korea (발렌타인 데이!)

 


You Are Awesome, Tim Burton

This past weekend I went up to Seoul with my friends Heather and Beau as a goodbye trip before they leave to go work in Japan. While I was there having some fun (while freezing a bit), I was also able to cross something else off of my 27 before 27 list.DSC01247

This past weekend I braved the cold weather of Seoul and went to the Seoul Museum of Art to see the amazing Tim Burton exhibit!


Winter in Korea

Vacation is over, Korea is feeling cold, and I think I have a case of the Winter Doldrums. But I’m not too worried because it is a proven fact that cupcakes are an age-old cure for the Winter Doldrums.  DSC01145

And cupcakes with old friends is an even better remedy (the Banana Velvet cupcake worked wonders for me).

Korea’s favorite snack

Street foods are a favorite among locals, expats and tourists in South Korea.  The most popular and often beloved of these foods is Ddeokbokki.

Ddeokbokki (do-bo-ki) is everything one looks for in the perfect street food, or any food for that matter: It’s commonly found, inexpensive, fulfilling and most importantly – delicious!


In an Unremarkable Corner

DSC00904In an unremarkable corner, in a quiet temple in Phnom Penh I found this bowl of water with flowers floating on top.  There is something about these flowers that keep drawing me back to this picture, and I wanted to share it. Maybe it’s the colors, or the lightness in a dark space, or even just the shine of the waters on the petals, but I do need to remember to keep an eye out for the unexpected beauty not only when I travel, but in the places I pass every day.  I hope you have a lovely Wednesday and find beauty in unexpected places.

From Busan with Love,
Jenna


서울 등불 축제 ♥ Seoul Lantern Festival

Are you looking for something fun to to in Seoul during the month of November? What about the beautiful night-time event of 청계천 서울 등불 축제  Seoul Lantern Festival in Chungye-Chun on the river!


Ta Prohm

Ta Prohm was one of my favorite temples that I visited in Cambodia, and it’s not too surprising. Along with Bayon, Ta Prohm had that feeling of being a lost temple filled with potential discovery, which I loved.

Even when it was swarming with tour groups (a lot of which were Korean), there were plenty of nooks and crannies ripe for exploring away from the crowds.


I’m A Tree Hugger

I started writing about Ta Prohm, but looking through my pictures there was so many ones I liked, and so much to talk about I didn’t know where to start.  In the end I felt that I needed split it up so one post wouldn’t have 50 pictures in it.

Ta Prohm was the only temple my friend Russ and I ended up going to twice, and was the last temple we visited before leaving Siem Reap so I have a lot of pictures and a lot of things to talk about.


What will 2013 Look Like?

Things changing this year in Korea Starting in July, there will be no smoking allowed in PC bangs! The age of becoming a legal adult will change: 19 year olds are adults and thus will be drinking it up!  (Korean age, aka 18 by our standards) Korean Day will “REbecome” a holiday from 2013. The 9th [...]
