The Reading Nook | 3 | Books I’ll (probably) Never Read

I spied this tag going around booktube after watching Ariel's video of the tag created by this lovely lady (go check them out) and thought I'd have a whirl at the same thing here on the blog. Let's get to it. What's a really hyped book you're not interested in reading?   Lady Midnight and… Continue reading The Reading Nook | 3 | Books I’ll (probably) Never Read

These Geeky Adventures | Boseong & Yeosu

THE sun has arrived in Korea! The weather is becoming deliciously warm and that means trips. Upon seeing photos, one half of the parental unit declared that I was on a permanent holiday - I like to see it as living in a place where the sun actually shines when it's suppose to, and where it's… Continue reading These Geeky Adventures | Boseong & Yeosu

This Months Bests | April

I have my book posts, my baking posts, ones about teaching and ones about traveling around Korea, and even ones about music, but what about all the things I miss in-between! So, in order to not miss anything, I plan on putting up a favourites post the first Wednesday of every month (though being the first,… Continue reading This Months Bests | April

The Reading Nook | Two

AFTER the upsurge of reading in January came the drought. I have been content to re-read and listen to audio books of old favourites as the hours in the day ran away from me, as they are want to do. THE February-March changeover is always a busy time of year in Korea. The school year… Continue reading The Reading Nook | Two

Throwback Thursday: Andong

ANDONG is known for its Folk Festival, held in October every year,… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Andong

A Year in Music | 2017 | 1st Quarter

I'M always interested in keeping track of the music I listen too, which is varied in genre, but there are always some songs that stick around for longer, or there are songs that bring certain memories to the forefront of your mind. I'm making more of an effort to actually record my monthly top tens… Continue reading A Year in Music | 2017 | 1st Quarter

ESL | Why Korea?

I'VE thrown teaching materials at you for some weeks now, and thought it was time to take a pause and talk about how and why I came to be in Korea in the first place. Perhaps you're looking into Korea yourself, or perhaps you are simply interested in other peoples stories. Whatever the reason, I… Continue reading ESL | Why Korea?

봄봄봄

IT'S that time of year again! In Jinhae the cherry blossoms are out, and Busker Busker's Cherry Blossom Ending is back in the charts. Again. Although, personally, my favourite Spring song is Roy Kim's 봄봄봄 (spring, spring, spring).   JINHAE is home to the biggest and most well known of all the cherry blossom festivals in… Continue reading 봄봄봄
