A Weekend Away in Chicago!

As you may know, my sister has visited me in New York quite a few times over the past four years. I, however, did not get a chance to visit her in the great midwest until this past weekend. She rode up to Chicago to pick me up, and the two of us met up with our dad, who was making a quick stop in Chicago during a business trip. After a great day in the city with food and fun, we made the trip to my sister’s school in Notre Dame… which turned out to be completely different from my campus (if you can call it one) in downtown Manhattan. Here’s a video of what my weekend was like!

Without further ado, Here’s a video of what my weekend was like!

Spring Break in Cancun!

Last week during spring break, I went on my very first tropical vacation to Mexico with my friends! It was truly one of the most amazing trips I’ve ever had. I was able to escape the major snowstorm that hit New York and enjoy beautiful summer weather instead… I’m already missing the ocean breeze and the unlimited pina coladas!

Seoulful Moments: Winter in Korea

It’s the first day of my last semester as an undergrad today… but I just can’t seem to break out of winter break mode! On that note, I wanted to share the fun times I had in Korea over the winter.

Except for my family’s little hiatus in Busan, I spent most of my break in Seoul. I edited the footage in three parts – and here they are!

Family Trip to Busan!

This past weekend, my family took a pretty spontaneous trip down to Busan. This time, none of us were driving; instead, we took the KTX bullet train, which took us approximately 2 hours for a trip that would have taken more than 4 hours by car. The last time I had been to Busan was in elementary school for a brief summer trip to the beach, and I barely remember it; this one was much more memorable, and filled with amazing food as well! Here’s a video of our trip:

Foodventure in Korea: Trip Across Jeolla Province!

My dad has always been pretty busy with his work; too often our family vacations have been canceled or changed to a closer location. But not this time! Since both my sister and I are studying abroad in the US while my parents are in Korea, we decided that this summer was the chance to set some time aside and embark on a family road trip!

default

We drove from our home in Seoul (see it way up at the top?) down to Jeollanam-do (aka South Jeolla Province), where the different cities within it are rich with character and best of all, LOTS OF DELICIOUS FOOD! My family doesn’t have much association with this particular province (my mom’s side is from Gyeongsangnam-d0/Busan, and my dad’s side takes roots in Gyeongsang buk-do/Daejeon), so most of the things we saw and did on this trip were a first for all four of us.

Without further ado, here’s the video of my trip:

Vlog: Korea Summer 2k16!

OMG! Can you believe that we’re already at the halfway point of 2016? I’m starting my summer internship in NYC in about a week, but I made the decision to fly back home to Seoul for a few weeks before I do. It was awesome to surprise all of my relatives and catch up with friends in Korea! I’m probably gonna upload more detailed posts about the things I’ve done here, as well as reviews about the different products I’ve been trying or have purchased. But in the meantime, I wanted to share with you the first two parts of my stay here so far… As always, shopping around, eating amazing food, and enjoying the hot summer weather in different spots of the city is super fun.

 

 

 

Cape May Vlog

Here’s a video about my short trip to Cape May, NJ. Now that I’m back in the hustle and bustle of the city, this experience already feels like a dream!

 

(I APOLOGIZE FOR THE SHAKINESS!!)

I’ve been trying to vlog more while I have the time. I’m leaving for Seoul tomorrow, so I’m pretty stoked to explore Korea with my camera in hand!
