December Updates: GRRRLTRAVELER Published Writings and Top 100s

Last Updated on

We might be settling into a White Christmas this holiday season.. This past week it snowed in Korea!
This month, I’ve a big list of awesome GRRR!s to send out, so I’m dedicating this post just for that:

December’s issue of Daegu Pockets is out!

My article Haeneyo: the Last Generations of Korean Mermaids is in it! Well, the 500-word count version of it, at least. Also my story was one of the few translated for Korean readers as well; so I’m delighted. As usual, the magazine packs tons of fun stories about happenings in Korea, curious cultural tidbits, essential Daegu maps and a monthly dose of bite-sized Konglish.

I’m finally a paid writer on EPIK

Yes, they do good for me, even though I occasionally bitch about them. My piece Making a Pilgrimage: The Hike to Gatbawi was selected and will be published to the EPIK site, with other documented EPIK teacher memoirs and journeys.  I’m finally a paid writer!

Hollers out to Gadling

Gadling mentioned me and my jjimjilbang travel tip in his article, “Local Budget Travel Secrets“.

If you follow and live your dreams, your create that possibility for everyone else…

GRRR! s to Almost Fearless‘s lovely Christine

She posted 100 Most Inspired Travel Blogs and included me in it!  I’m very honored. When I first researched how to turn a gap year into live and work abroad travel lifestyle, Christine’s blog was one of the sparks to get my flight dreams out of park. As the pen of Almost Fearless, she shares her success as a digital nomad lifestyle and basically, tells you how you can do it too.

    Wow! Lots of exciting things going on for you!

  • Look at you making waves. Girl, I’m so proud of you!

  • Wow, congratulations on being all over the place this month! So sorry to hear about your vacation being screwed, though. That bites. Yes, the holidays are the most expensive days to fly anywhere–especially if you can’t book until the last minute. I’m so sorry you weren’t able to fly home to be with your family for the holiday. I’m sure they are, too.

    As an aside, I’ve never heard the expression “Konglish” before. Cool.

    • @Gray: ha ha… I’ll have to check into why it’s Kong-lish and not Koreanlish. tee hee. I love how some countries have their own their language-English hybrids. Korean = Konglish, Indian= Hinglish… wonder what else there is out there?
