Have Yourself a Korean Little Christmas

IMG_1782Merry Christmas from Korea! Besides a few twinkling roundabout decorations and lights hanging from windows of major shopping malls, Ulsan unfortunately doesn’t offer much in the way of holiday spirit. However, Busan is a whole different story!


Namhae, September 6-9, 2014

We decided to go camping in Namhae for the vacation time during the Chuseok holiday. Namhae is a quaint beach town a 2-1/2 hour bus ride from Busan.

From the Busan West Bus Terminal (부산서부시외버스터미), it costs 11,900 to take the bus to Namhae (남해 시외버스 터미널). I recommend camping at Sangju Beach (상주은모래비치). There isn’t much to do or eat there, but it has facilities for camping (including bathrooms and showers in the summer). I highly suggest bringing food, but there are many marts around that sell drinks and instant ramen, etc..


A Korean Winter Mystery

The past couple of weeks have seen the temperature drastically drop to below freezing- winter, along with a hefty lot of snow, has officially arrived. As such, the coats are back out, everyone is dressed up in their warming, winter gear. But there is one big difference between Koreans and foreigners and how they wear their winter clothes, and it’s something which puzzled me last year and has remained a mystery until now: why do (99% 0f) Koreans wear their coats inside?

Rachel’s Tiny Kitchen #1 – RICE COOKER CHICKEN WINGS!

I have always enjoyed cooking, but boy did I take for granted my kitchen and oven in the States! Since moving to Korea I’ve had to adapt the way I cook completely. From having no counter space, to replacing ingredients with things available here, to trying to make delicious cakes in a small toaster oven, I’ve done it all! There have been a lot of failed experiments and total disasters in my tiny kitchen(stories I may have to share soon!), but along the way I’ve learned a lot about how to make your tiny kitchen as efficient as possible and still make delicious food!


It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Nope, it’s a waygook!
