I am SUPER happy today — As you might know, Korean fruits and vegetables are INSANELY priced ($12 for a small package of strawberries?!) but, yesterday, I found a great deal! A 3-for-$10 special including strawberries, green grapes, red grapes, tangerines, tomatoes and a fruit I couldn’t recognize. I stocked up and will literally eat grapes […]
I have flown many airlines in my life. I never considered which would be my favourite (maybe TAP) but now I unanimously have a least favourite – Peach Aviation.

As an aside, it’s strawberry season here in Korea! I love strawberries and […]
