It’s been a very long time since a proper posting. I have actually gone back to hand-writing in a journal and just have such a backlog of photos (that need editing as well) that I have totally been procrastinating here. It shouldn’t be such a chore and I do enjoy blogging but somehow I always … More 2016 Travel update
Missing Scotland and travel and wondering if dreams can come true.
Angkor Wat, Cambodia, 2009.
Wow, it’s been over half a year since my last post. Life has been crazy, well, a little crazier than usual. The reason I actually stopped writing initally was because I went to Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia last October-November and I wanted to finish off my Korea posts before I got started on that trip. … More I’m still here.
Changdeokgung was the first palace (out of four) that I went to in Seoul. It took me quite awhile to whittle down the number of photos to post so just a warning that this will be picture-heavy.

Gwangjang market is, quite simply, food heaven. The marketplace is lined with stalls and stalls of delicious-looking food which can make it very hard to choose what to eat and has all the hustle and bustle you would expect from any market in Asia. I went there twice – once on my first trip with Rachel … More Gwangjang Market
The Trick Eye Museum was a recommendation from Janet and it sparked an immediate interest as I haven’t come across anything like that so far here or during my travels and it sounded pretty fun. The catch is that it is not a place where you can go alone as you need a partner to take photos … More Trick Eye Museum (and Ice Museum)
Since my last post, I’d been wanting to eat the five spice pinwheel cookies but for some reason, haven’t been able to find them in the Asian marts I went to, so I decided to look up recipes on how to make them instead but discovered that they’re actually fried cookies which means a lot … More Five Spice Cookies
