Self Destruction

Seoul, Korea   Ego…That’s where I have to start with Korea.  I believe that the whole ego driven motor metaphor that I referred to my ego post–is what is driving the entire country of Southern Korea. I would even go as far to say that this vehicle is currently driving completely and totally out of control; possibly wrecking havoc on… Read more →

Let go of my ego

Seoul, Korea I feel like I have delayed writing the most about this location…  For loyal readers; I  apologize and I also thank you for keeping with me…  Sometimes I feel like I should be writing everything possible, every single day about every single experience….but this seems impossible.  We keep extremely busy traveling, packing, unpacking, researching, exploring and simply attempting… Read more →

Exotic Australian Drink

Thredbo, Australia The next morning… “Apple Schnapps” was an evil word.  Jason’s comment upon waking, “I have never seen anyone drink that much apple schnapps!” My response, “I was drinking Apple Schnapps?!” I thought the whole night I was drinking some special “Australian”  drink.  I  couldn’t make out what it was called because of their accents.  It just sounded exotic… Read more →
