One hundred miles on a bike (almost)

For years I’ve been on the fence about splurging on a new road bike. I finally made it happen this fall, and I decided to break her in with a century ride last weekend. While the ride is one I’ll never forget, it’s also one I’d rather not repeat.

Peace out, Korea!

After 12 months in Korea, Wade and I quit our jobs and packed our bags. A lot of people have asked us why we didn’t want to stay another year in Korea or find a different job there. Simply put– we felt it was time to move on. Continue reading “Finding space in Vietnam”

Can you believe this is me? I NEVER remember to jump!

It’s official.

After 10 months in Korea, I’ve had too many awesome (and bizarre) experiences to count. I’ve seen historic palaces, hiked through amazing scenery, and tried spicy-ass foods (even octopus). But one of the best things yet is my journey into the sport of Ultimate Frisbee.

Exploring Sejong: Beartree Park (베어트리파크)

20160403_142937When I first moved to Korea, everyone I met told me that spring was truly the best time here. Cherry blossoms bloom and the sun finally starts to shine again. Turns out… they were right! This weekend we picnicked in the spring sun and explored another part of Sejong: Beartree Park.

Vibing on nature in Sejong City

IMG_1590Sejong City might be Korea’s newest (and most unfinished?) city, but there’s no shortage of interesting green space. Last weekend Wade and I  checked out one of its coolest outdoor parks, Geumgang Natural Recreation Forest. This place is a total gem and it’s right on our doorstep.  Continue reading “Vibing on nature in Sejong City”
