Yes, I am late once again. Those who are simultaneously traveling and managing a blog will understand: sometimes schedules change. Hopefully my readers understand! On to the food! First things first. I know I posted this picture on Facebook, but I feel the need to plug my favorite coffee shop yet again. Homestead Coffee is a chain in Korea that you can find in many areas, but I love my Itaewon location. I am there at least once a week and always order something to drink and e
As with any trip, unexpected things can happen. Such is the life of a traveler. Due to unforeseen circumstances this Food Friday is now a Food Sunday. It's a rainy day here in Seoul, perfect for sitting at a coffee shop and spending time writing and editing photos. Last week I traveled to Sokcho, on the east coast of Korea.

Conveyor line sushi in Sinchon (the sushi was...different...from Japanese sushi, not that great, but really fun).
