It's that time again, and it seems to come around too quickly. A haircut and with a brand new style.
Friday night I rushed to the bus and made my way into Tanbang, central Daejeon to visit Leechard Pro-hair.
A whole year has come and gone and all the while I've been living in South Korea. What better thing to do than go home for a surprise visit and spend time in beautiful New Zealand? Nothing, the answer is nothing. So off I went...
On a recent trip to Seoul and pretty much by accident, friends and I stumbled upon a breakfast cafe. But if the last 11 months in Korea (can you believe it's been that long!?!) has taught us anything, it has to be 'do not trust the Engrish'. Engrish, that's right, broken English promising all sorts of amazing western food that usually does not deliver.
Pictures don't always help and sometimes confuse us further, but once you're inside it feels a little embarrassing to get up and leave.
But do not fear, for below is two sparkling reviews of amazing brunch restaurants you should visit in Korea.
That picture there is a celebration. Four women who 11 months ago didn't know each other, have just resigned for a second year in South Korea. I cannot believe it is resigning time. This year has been amazing and I feel good about staying on in the same school and in the same city. It's not time to go home just yet.
As the calender pages race by and I find myself reflecting on the past 11 months, I also find myself listing strange and sometimes simple things as true blessings.
Below is just 10 things, in no particular order, that I am very grateful for at this point in my life.
