Taking a look at art culture in Seoul South Korea. Major art gallery insights, public art & graffiti. Seoul museum of art. Contemporary modern art in Seoul. Spend the better part of the day at some of the many (air-conditioned) art galleries scattered around the area of Jongno-gu. Alternatively you can walk the streets near Seongsu station and find all the hidden murals. There are many public works of art scattered all around Seoul and you simply cannot ignore the contemporary architecture that has made its mark on the city skyline. I spent a few weeks in Seoul and I absolutely fell in love with their dedication to making art accessible to everyone. There is no shortage of creative stimulation in Seoul.

Best view of Ha long Bay - How to get to Bai Tho (Poem Mountain) || Story time

Best view of Ha Long Bay Vietnam. Ha Long Bay ( “Descending Dragon”) is a truly magical place. It is easy to see why it has become a UNESCO World Heritage site, with its beautiful emerald waters & the thousands of limestone islands dotting the horizon. These rock formations were said to be formed by dragons spitting out jewels into the sea to create a protective barrier form invading ships. To fully appreciate the wonder of Ha Long you can always take a junk cruise; however, if you’d rather get an aerial viewpoint of Ha long bay at sunset then look no further than Poem Mountain.

The best way to explore a new city like a local!

Geocaching is creative tourism at its finest. As a slow traveller I love making connections to the places I visit. A rushed itinerary that jumps from place to place over a couple of days is just not my style. I love staying in one location for at least 2 weeks & being able to soak up the entire atmosphere without feeling the pressure of having to get to the next place. Slow travel has lots of positives, however there is one negative I have found. Being all consumed with one location doesn’t leave much time to plan for the next. So to overcome this issue, I’ve found a really fun & interesting way to discover a new city or location like a local; with little to no research required!
