An Island Vacation on Cheung Chau | Explore Hong Kong

An Island Vacation on Cheung Chau | Explore Hong Kong

While living in Korea, our hagwon offered two vacations periods. One in the winter and one in the summer. For our summer vacation my friend and I were trying to decide where we would go for 5 days. At first we were looking into the Philippines, but the flights were too expensive and we were a little nervous about travelling there with the current political climate. We found a round trip to Hong Kong for only $150 and decided to…

Jindo Sea Parting Festival | Explore Korea

Korea has festivals all year round for everything from snow crabs to fireflies, from tea to the sea. There is plenty to do and explore in this amazing country. I was fortunate enough to have lived there for two years and got to see so much of the country. I posted last week about visiting the Green Tea Fields in April.

We were ready to spend six glorious days exploring the island, breathing in fresh air (sometimes a rarity where we live in Korea) and relaxing.

St. Malo: Spending the Day in a Pirate Town

St. Malo: Spending the Day in a Pirate Town

                      St. Malo is right along the sea and so it was the perfect place for…PIRATES! Yes, when our tour guide mentioned this was once a pirate town I was instantly excited and I kind of hoped there would be people dressed up as pirates around town. Alas there wasn’t, but this is still a nice town to visit. Part of the town is fortified by: Le Fort La Reine,…

Landing Beach: Gold

Landing Beach: Gold

                      The canola fields. They are just so pretty!   I wasn’t kidding when I said there was a carousel in every town. I now wish I had gone for a ride on one of them. So as I stated on my post about Omaha, I decided to have two different posts just because I took so many pictures at Omaha.
