South Korea: Checking in!

I’m finally here! Seoul, South Korea has been my  home for the past two months, yet it feels like I’ve been here for half a year! I’ve already had several “what did I get myself into moments” along with a few emotional breakdowns, but overall I’ve been enjoying the ride. I have brief moments of productivity during my short amounts of free time, so I figured I should update my neglected blog. I’m keeping this post pretty simple, so let me break it down.

7 Things I loved about my life in Thailand.

There was so much to love about Thailand despite my awkward adjustment phase, as mentioned in my previous post, Adjusting to a new life in Thailand. It’s easier to reflect on the positives now that I’ve moved out of the country. A solid three months during the low season in this top travel destination taught me a lot about myself as a traveler and made me hungry to see more. I always get asked for my favorite things about the places I visit, and I like to have a well thought out response. So, here it is for Thailand!

Exploring California.

I want to share some of my favorite photos from the past three weekends. I’ve made it a goal to see something new every weekend to keep my travel spirits high and healthy. After spending some time abroad I realized I had explored very little of the place I call home.  Continue reading “Exploring California.”

Finding peace in Prague.. with alcohol!

Ok, so finally a happy post! I feel like my last two were written during some rough times, but hey, that’s life. Luckily, my time in Prague turned around quite incredibly and I ended up having the time of my life. Once I reminded myself that I was in control of my happiness, I started to relax and I really worked on myself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Plainly put, I needed a chill pill. Continue reading “Finding peace in Prague.. with alcohol!”

Goodbye, Thailand. Time to reflect.

My travels in Thailand have come to an end. As I look back on the photos I took from the 3 months I spent there, I am pleasantly reminded of all the interesting experiences I had. Now it’s time for reflection. So how has the trip changed me? Continue reading “Goodbye, Thailand. Time to reflect.”

How I was able to start my traveling journey.

I’m not particularly special. I’m not wealthy. I don’t have a bunch of awesome connections or hook ups (aside from ones I’ve made along the way). And nothing has really been handed to me. Things have just happened in such a way that allowed me to be where I am today. Let me explain. Continue reading “How I was able to start my traveling journey.”

Adjusting to a new life in Thailand.

So, I’ve been traveling and living in Thailand now for about 2 months. In a short time I was able to accomplish visiting many places so I’m pretty pumped about that! Continue reading “Adjusting to a new life in Thailand.”

A year in Prague: The good and the bad.

I had the pleasure of living in Prague for one full year from July 2013 to July 2014. Originally I had planned to stay only for one month while earning my TEFL certification, but I quickly fell in love with this historic city and decided to stay longer. My only regret was not properly handling my visa/work permit situation, which eventually forced me to leave my job and Europe. Despite the unwanted ending, I loved my time in Prague and so I’ve created this list to share the things I enjoyed and disliked about living in Prague.
