My 6 Best Travel Moments of 2016

I started last year with My 5 Best Travel Moments of 2015, so why not kick it up a notch this year to My 6 Best Travel Moments of 2016?! This year was more about living abroad, and adjusting to an expat lifestyle, instead of traveling, and it has undoubtedly been one of the more important years of my life. While last year was more about solo travel and looking inwards, many of my favorite moments from this year were spent with others: both strangers and friends, and of course strangers who became friends. This year was all about connections,…

Seegs Quarterly Apr – June 2016

It’s time for the second Seegs Quarterly! I’m looking back on these past few months with lots of gratitude. Gratitude for the experiences I’ve had, for the patience to know that hard times don’t last and will eventually turn to good, for the interesting people I’ve met around the world, and for my unique lifestyle that wouldn’t have been possible years ago. I spent the first part of the quarter wrapping up things in Taiwan. I was pretty whiney towards the end of my time in Taipei and couldn’t wait to leave, but that was unfair of me. Because I knew…

Hanging Out in Asia’s Themed Cafes

Visiting a Themed Cafe in Asia is a thing. I’ve been able to visit several throughout Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong but they’re littered throughout all of Asia, with many of the concepts originating in Tokyo. Here’s a look at the four themed cafes that I’ve visited: Hello Kitty Cafe Pink. If I had to sum the Hello Kitty Cafe up in one word, it would undoubtedly be pink. This themed cafe is located in the Myeong-dong neighborhood of Seoul, South Korea. Beyond the cafe, this neighborhood is everything you’d picture Korea to be: bright lights, Korean pop music playing…

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…

Seegs Quarterly Jan-Mar 2016

Welcome to the First Seegs Travels Quarterly! Besides just having very travel specific posts, I think it would go further if I shared more about my journey as a whole. The internal journey is just as important as the external one. While I don’t have enough interesting things happen to me to post monthly updates, I’ll do a general update post about every 3 months, which will of course turn out to be 4 times a year. Hence the name. My business background also makes me partial to quarterly findings :) So here’s what happened from January to March 2016: I finally…
