The last couple of months were very busy, my husband and I moved from our home for the past year in Jamsil to an AirBnB and then to the in-laws. Living out of suitcases, working, catching-up with friends and saying ‘see you soon’ to friends old and new.
In February, we landed in Canada as new PR Residents after a very unexpected change and now we are finding our feet in Canada. We’ve explored the city as much as you can in a short space (say, 8 days!) and even managed to find our new home in downtown, get our paperwork sorted (SIN, cell phone, banking and await the PR card).
Now we’ve got only a few more days in AirBNB before the actual move and concluded that Canadians are insanely friendly, welcoming folks, very helpful and have a neat sense of humour.
Unlike Korea, we can find foods from Korea and the UK all at a good price whereas Korea, foreign food (say British in this case) often over priced and we are shocked by how cheap so many other things can get – if you compare to Korea.
Korea shares first place with China, as my personal favorite place.. can Canada grab that title. Let us see!
It certainly offers some incredible views!
SEMA (Seoul Museum of Art) always offers a variety of awesome exhibitions, I was especially impressed with the work of the late Chun Kyung-Ja’s work and equally I suggest art lovers explore all of the SEMA locations in Seoul and even given their gallery in Nown-Gu a look over.
Take a look at some articles about:

There is something magical about Stratford-upon-Avon, a market town with more than 800 years of history, adorable buildings, a lively town and one with some many blessings and worthy of a visit.
With so much to visit, I offer you a few snaps from my afternoon walking along very familiar territory for me, a Brit.
Find yourself in Manchester and a little hungry, I suggest swinging by ‘Noshers‘.

How to end an awesome vacation?
I’ve always been a big fan of all things coming from Shinsegae and their latest product, Starfield is a magical treat. A short walk or a bus ride from Samseong on Line 3, a 20-30 minute ride from north Seoul.
I recommend you arrive early, 6-7am.. and spend a few hours in the mall’s spa and this post will give you a good reason, the spa offers many treats and my favorites were the pools.
The spa is located on the top floor, so once you feel all refreshed you can head downstairs for lunch and then some coffee!

London will always keep part of my heart, the city is so vibrant and alive.
I love these images and they remind me of a place that is always home, wherever in the world I may find myself!
The flowery Moseley suburb of Birmingham, a popular place to call home and offers a handful of bars, restaurants and shops to local resident and visitor alike.
One of my personal favorite cafes is Maison Mayci, located next to the Sainsbury’s Local it offers a comfortable atmosphere, great food and coffee.
It is a French owned business.
