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. It is called ‘Picnic in Your Pocket’. This is more of an internet journal entry for things that I loved watching during the week, things that I have been listening to and things I have been thinking about. It is extremely cathartic and I have finished 3 issues so far.

It applies to peopleContinue reading “Ten things to do on public transport instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media”

Gyeongbokgung Palace: Hard to spell, even harder to take a bad picture of!

Yesterday, my fellow Korean class members and I ventured out in the dust to visit Gyeongbokgung Palace. This palace is kind of the pulsing heart of Seoul, the lifeblood of the city. Everything around it is more or less using this palace for energy. That’s the way I see it, anyway. It’s by no meansContinue reading “Gyeongbokgung Palace: Hard to spell, even harder to take a bad picture of!”

It’s hard to be a travel blogger when you’re no longer a traveller

The title of this blog post is every travel blogger’s existential crisis. Allow me to explain myself… I began this highly profitable and informative travel blog back in August 2017 when I was embarking on a study abroad trip to South Korea. Since then, I have completed said study abroad, travelled here on two moreContinue reading “It’s hard to be a travel blogger when you’re no longer a traveller”
