Embracing Local Traditions, South Korea

8

Sooooooo this post is well and truly overdue. Like a few years overdue, but rest assure it’s here now (finally!) and I hope you enjoy the read.

In 2014 when I booked my ticket to Seoul, South Korea, I had one thing in mind. To get creative and really immerse myself in the culture. I wanted to try different things and leave having learnt something new about myself. Sometimes when we travel it’s easy to get stuck in the routine of visiting only the main attractions and we forget to experience the little things. Like what truly makes a place unique? What are the local customs and traditions?  

I spent a total of eight days in Seoul and this was my experience.

The Great Barrier Reef & More

2

Hey everyone! This weeks post is dedicated to the wonderful place that I call home – AUSTRALIA. The countdown is officially on (5 weeks!) until I’m laying on a beach with my friends and family, eating cherry ripes and getting that much needed vitamin D back into my body. I have two weeks at home before returning to London, which doesn’t seem like a long enough visit to justify the twenty hour flight (I’m secretly praying for an upgrade) but I’ll be escaping part of the British winter, so no complaints here!

My Polish Weekend – When Things Don’t Go As Planned

Okay, so my run of smooth travelling was bound to run out at some point. I mean, nobody is that lucky. And as you have probably already guessed by the title of this post, yes, my luck ran out and Poland wasn’t all puppy dogs and rainbows as I would have liked. But still a beautiful place, so visit if you get the chance!

Santorini – Flight Mode On

7

I can’t believe how fast this year is going, it’s already September! That’s only four months until Christmas!!! At the same time, I feel like I’ve achieved so much. I’ve changed careers, started writing a novel, traveled to ten new destinations within Europe (that’s one place every two weeks) took up baking classes in Paris, maintained a social life and so much more. 

Because I’m always on the go, constantly looking to tick the next thing off my bucket list, before I know it, another week, another month, and another year has passed. So one thing I’m learning to do a lot more of, is to just stop. To take a deep breathe and take it all in. Acknowledge my hard work and what I’ve accomplished, and know that I don’t always have to be ‘doing something’ on my travels. Sometimes it’s just nice to go somewhere and have some much needed chill time. 

Which is exactly what I wanted from my trip to Santorini. This place has been at the top of my bucket list for as long as I can remember, and I wanted nothing more than to sit back, relax and just take it all in.
