The Times, They Are A-Changin'

The Times, They Are A-Changin’

It’s wonderful what you can do when you have to. – C.S. Lewis I’m baaaaack! As per my usual pattern, it’s taken me an inordinate amount of time to get this post together. I promise, this time, it’s for a good reason. Some big changes are coming up for the Marasiaks, and before you speculate […]

Three Nights in Bangkok

Three Nights in Bangkok

When booking travel, I have a bad habit of searching the depths of the Internet until it cannot be searched anymore. This time, my efforts paid off when I discovered an awesome deal on two one-way tickets for our journey to Bangkok from Busan. After a year of extensive travel, we had built up enough […]

A Four Hour Tour (of Hong Kong)

A Four Hour Tour (of Hong Kong)

One of the best decisions we made in Hong Kong was to take a guided tour with Joe from Big Foot Tours. Typing that, I realize it sounds like a paid advertisement for them, but honestly, it was a great way to experience the city without feeling like a tourist. Since it was just J-Mar, […]

Cherry Blossoms in Kyoto, Japan

Cherry Blossoms in Kyoto, Japan

Where does the time go? This post series has been in the making for almost a month now, but the sheer number of photos taken on this trip has been a daunting editing task, let alone life and work and craft projects getting in the way. Thanks a lot, Pinterest. Anyway, in early April, we […]

Philippines: Canyoning (aka Waterfall Climbing)

Philippines: Canyoning (aka Waterfall Climbing)

If you haven’t read yet, the big crushing blow on our recent Philippines adventure was that we wouldn’t get to go waterfall rappelling. Sara and I (and J too, probably) had been dreaming of doing this for months and unfortunately, our vacation dates just matched up with a low pressure front in the area, which […]

SAK: Back in Action!

SAK: Back in Action!

Guess who’s back? This past weekend, I was reunited with two of my best friends from high school, Sara and Kayla. Although we were missing one crucial member, our small group has always self-identified as “SAAK” for obvious reasons, and this time our adventures find us across the world in Asia. You’ve met Kayla, her […]

Ulsan Pro Basketball: Mobis Phoebus

Ulsan Pro Basketball: Mobis Phoebus

Last week at this time, we were enjoying some Korean professional basketball. Yes, it’s once again taken me much too long to get this together for the blog, but I think technology just hates me right now. Too many devices I must use to capture pictures and video, then prepare them and then post them. […]

Hyundai Shipyard Tour

Hyundai Shipyard Tour

The great difference between voyages rests not with the ships, but with the people you meet on them. – Amelia Barr Last week, my three new gal-friends and I decided to sign up for a tour of the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard, located very close to the foreigner’s compound where we live. We weren’t […]

Another Week in the Books

Another Week in the Books

The good: I attended a baby shower for a friend who is on her way to the hospital right now to have her first baby! It was fun getting tips on where to buy crafty stuff – this baby shower had all kinds of paper craft decorations and yummy snacks. Then, my big success for […]

We're moving, again?

We’re moving, again?

Well, after that last somewhat depressing post, I have an interesting follow up announcement! Just when we thought we were done with this: …And this: …it looks like we will be taking our sweet pups to a new apartment. Don’t worry, we are not leaving Korea, but we need to make some changes for a […]
