15 Mouth-watering Foods You Can’t Miss in South Korea
Intro Before I moved to South Korea, I was a very different person. I had never tried or even heard of any Korean food. I wasn’t a big fan of rice (Korea’s saying is, “It’s not a meal without rice.”) I couldn’t handle anything hot, and I was terrified of a mere molecule of chili. I fully expected to hate it.
Trying to Fit into Korea’s One Size Fits All Beauty Standards
Shopping in South Korea I loved Korea’s vast underground shopping malls. Mazes of the wonder that is Korean skincare, beauty and makeup. Blemish balm (BB) creams, snail serums, volcanic clay masks, foot peel socks, great sugar scrubs, and beautiful lip stains, to name a few. One of my biggest regrets is not filling up a suitcase of these goodies when I left!
Why Xel-Ha in the Riviera Maya is Not Your Average Water Park
Intro If I told you that I went to a water park that only had one slide, you’d probably assume it was the world’s worst waterpark! But not this time! Xel-Ha Park in the Riviera Maya is based in an inlet of the Caribbean Sea and is an incredible spot for more natural water activities making full use of the natural landscape and wildlife. It’s unlike anywhere I’ve ever visited.
Sumidero Canyon — Is this the Best Place to Visit in the Chiapas, Mexico?
Intro Sumidero Canyon is an impressive and stunningly beautiful natural wonder of the Chiapas region of Mexico, it’s so important to the region it even appears on the Chiapas flag! It is 35 million years old and the Grijalva River supports wildlife such as river crocodiles, spider monkeys, white-tailed deer, and countless birds to name a few!
Los Rapidos - Why this is the Most Recommended Spot in Bacalar, Mexico
When asking around what the best thing to do in Bacalar was, one thing came up over and over again. Los Rapidos! Or, The Rapids, in English. This may be a slightly misleading name, these are not exactly white water rapids but more of a lazy river.
The Joy of Low Expectations
My expectations for the small town of Comitan were of such little substance that they barely ceased to exist. The only reason we were staying there was to be closer to El Chiflon Waterwalls and Montebello Lakes. Most people do a tour from the popular highland town of San Cristobal, but, we wanted to avoid the exceptionally long day trip. I had read that you spend 80% of your time just driving there and back, with little time to enjoy the falls and lakes themselves. We wanted full days and the freedom to explore. We thought that staying in a nothing town would be the trade-off that we had to make to do that.
San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico, is it Worth a Trip?
Intro San Cristobal de las Casas is an adorable town in the central highlands of the Southern state of Chiapas in Mexico. It is surrounded by hills and sports wonderful views, Spanish colonial architecture with red tile roofs and cobblestone streets as well as a fascinating and proud indigenous culture and history.
