Boo! Halloween is just about here and October has been a roller coaster of surprises and near scares… The leaves are turning a brilliant yellow, the wind carries a light nip and where are all these damn mosquitoes coming from now? … Exciting and scary updates in this shout out..
So it was another weekend romp in Korea with my travel BFF, Chance, my new (but used) Canon 550D and part 2 of the Korean Love Motel Tour. Again. Why? Why not?! On our way back from a misty day at Boesang Tea Fields and a relaxing green tea saltwater spa treatment at Yulpo, we decided to stopover in Suncheon for the nite. I had read there’d be many accommodations to choose from in Suncheon– from [More...] hostels, to jjimjilbangs, hotels and love motels.

Home is where I lay my head is a true saying for me, but “I just want somewhere to lay my head for the night” are words you’ll seldom hear uttered from my lips.

Enter the Korean Love Motel.
