German Christmas Market

German Christmas Market

On the first Saturday in December I joined a friend to check out the German Christmas Market at the Deutsche Schule Seoul International. For my friend it was a confusing language nightmare since she's fluent in German, English and Korean and all were being spoken around us. The event started at 5pm and continued until 8pm [...]

Ploen Ruedee Night Market International Food Park เพลินฤดี

Our only night in Chiang Mai wasn't particularly exciting. While our itinerary said we'd go see a show or experience more of the local culture the majority of our group (myself included) weren't feeling all that great.

Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market

Bankok has a market for everything it feels like. Flower markets, night markets, flashlight markets, weekend markets and even floating markets. On the morning of my first day in Thailand I tried to sit and plan things I wanted to do. I wanted to do day tours and little trips but I was worried about [...]
