Review: Gonkaew Chiang Mai Guesthouse, Thailand

When you first step onto the grounds of Gongkaew Chiang Mai, you’ll think you’ve found home. Nestled off of a quiet side street, just 8 minutes from the Sunday walking street and Wat Phra Singh, the relaxed vibe of the place makes this a sanctuary for travelers wanting a personal feel, without a loss for Thai quality, professionalism and hospitality.

Is the Apple iPod Touch a traveler’s best companion?

Before I moved to Korea, I couldn’t imagine how much the today-me would want to congratulate myself for getting an Apple iPod Touch. Flash forward to a year abroad and nine countries later and I believe, it’s the only hand-held choice for a traveler.

Eat, Pray, Love… 10 Things to Know about Staying at an Indian ashram?

Finding my Inner Buddha at Musangsa Templestay, Daejeon (Day 1)

Day #1 at Templestay, Korea. The mind must be a clean slate, an empty cup.

Blank mind, empty cup. Yes, I could feel it…the Zen was sinking into me.

Listen to the sound of your breath.

I could hear it alright- deep, tranquil, low…

Lose attachment to all sound and body.

Definitely losing it. Walls were losing focus, limbs had gone beyond numb. Outside, the birds, wind, trees, the sound of my neighbors’ fidgeting,… it all passed through my ears, falling right through me.

Review: At last, Falafels in Korea! (Petra Palace, Seoul)

Shahrukh khan.

Review: Middle Eastern eats at Petra Restaurant in Itaewon

Within the past few months I’ve successfully satiated various comfort food cravings- from hummus, soy chicken nuggets and edamame; however, it’s the falafel that’s remained elusive. My deep-fried chickpea craving has become a delight gone unfulfilled. Thanks to Seoul Eats and their post, “Vegetarian restaurants in Seoul”, I finally got to cross falafels off my list (well, sorta…).
