We were based in South Korea for a few weeks shy of 3 months. It’s crazy that we now think that that is really not a long time to spend in one place. I guess it depends where you are but I really love how staying in one place for a while really gives you an understanding of the place you’re in and also it’s amazing how much you learn. I spoke about Koreans’ love of food in my previous post but here I’ll write some of the other things that we’ve learnt…
Recently, we had a job opportunity pop up for us to make some good cash in hand. The job was located on an Island South West of Korea called Jangsan.
The lovely team at workaway.info recently interviewed us and featured it on their blog! Check out how it went here: http://workawayblog.com/a-globetrotting-couples-story-with-workaway/
Excitement was shown all over our faces as we were in line waiting to board the ferry to the Faroe Islands. For those of you who do not know, the Faroe Islands are an archipelago situated between south east of Iceland, north of Scotland and west of Norway and are owned by the Danish kingdom, with just under 50,000 inhabitants.
Eb and I started our travels with backpacks. We left Sydney with $40 backpacks we bought on eBay (don’t ask why) that lasted a week.
We flew into Luang Prabang, Laos, a couple days ago now and have enjoyed the relaxed, slow paced way of life here. Sort of reminiscent of Siem Reap in Cambodia but not as busy.
So we thought yesterday was awesome… Well today couldn’t even compare to yesterday!!! Here’s how it went…
We arrived in Hanoi city and had planned to do a couple of days checking out the city, doing a bicycle tour that a friend of mine had recommended (thanks Baz),
Since we had been roughing it for 3 weeks in Siem Reap (accommodation wise), we decided to treat ourselves for a couple of days in the south of Cambodia on an Island called Koh Rong.
