6 Foods You Must Try in Seoul

The food game in South Korea is strong. With the Korean food scene in other parts of the world starting to blow up, I was excited to see if things were different in Korea, much like how food in China is vastly different from Chinese food in America. But either surprisingly or not, Korean food is true to it’s roots and much of what you’ll find in Korea (at least in my brief experience) is exactly what I’d pictured Korean food to be like, except much more fresh and delicious. Here’s what in my mind are the 6 foods you…

Mastering the Art of Dining Alone

At this point, I’ve probably eaten more meals solo than with dining companions and when you do something frequently enough, you start to prefer it. While it might seem that this is a sad topic, I look at it as quite the opposite. In my mind, being comfortable eating out alone is one of the most obvious signs that someone has the utmost confident in themselves and could care less about what people think. Also, if you’re on the road, you’ve gotta eat, and that shouldn’t be something that stresses you out. Here are a few of my tips so…

First Impressions of Taipei

I arrived in Taipei in what was literally the coldest it’s been in 15 years. OF COURSE that would happen to me, and I have to just laugh about it. I had come from New York, which was simultaneously experiencing the “Snowstorm of the Century”, therefore many people from back home probably couldn’t understand what I was complaining about. But the difference is since it’s never really that cold in Taiwan, there is no heat to be found anywhere. So whatever temperature it is outdoors (38° F in this case), it is the same temperature indoors. Ok. End of weather-related…

My 5 Best Travel Moments of 2015

This year was personally one of my greatest years on record for traveling. Even though things were a bit rocky at times this year, it always makes me feel so grateful to look back and be thankful for the journey. I feel so incredibly lucky to have had the experiences I’ve had, as well as the resources to make it all possible (even if it took some sacrifices along the way). Getting right to the point, here are my top 5 travel highlights of 2015:   1) Road tripping the Pacific Coast Highway This is one of the most beautiful drives on Earth. I…

Singapore: Pure Bliss for Solo Female Travelers / Foodies / Flashpackers

Singapore’s worldwide reputation is that of an extremely clean, very orderly city. While this is quite true (and can be attested to by the level of seriousness in which they take their crosswalks – you DO NOT walk when not permitted), it’s certainly not all there is to the “Lion City”. Another thing you hear often about Singapore is that you shouldn’t spend too long visiting there because it’s too expensive. Many people only travel there for two days or so as they continue on their Southeast Asian route or continue on to a different Asian metropolis. Now, I’m not going to…

Montreal is a Foodie Heaven!

I recently found myself in Montreal for a Girl’s Getaway aka my sister’s birthday celebration. I’m ashamed to admit that it was my first visit to the neighbor’s the north. In an attempt to “plant my flag” there, I apparently felt the need to eat my way through the weekend, and through the city. Thank you, Montreal, for the extra 5 pounds I will be bringing home as a souvenir. Just in time for beach season. But I won’t blame myself. Montreal is a Foodie’s Heaven. It’s not all Poutine & Crepes, either (although I had my fair share of both).…
