I started a weekly newsletter called ‘Picnic in Your Pocket’

I finally started a weekly newsletter! And I am loving it so far. Because I do so many things on the internet that nobody ever reads, I thought I’d make another thing for nobody to read.

After this blog post blows up the internet, maybe I’ll have some of that. When I first came to Seoul, I had no idea how to buyContinue reading “Where to buy furniture in Seoul”
