Out-of-the-blue post time!

I used to post lots of updates on facebook, and usually people liked what I had to say, but last year in June, I decided not to post for a month. A facebook detox, you could call it. Ever since, I barely post anything, yet I have SO MUCH TO SAY. And I want to … Continue reading

A visitor from Korea – Bruges part

On Sunday, I made sure my friend woke up early enough so I could take him to my favourite city in Belgium: Bruges. It’s a cozy medieval city where time seems to have stood still. And though there are lots of tourists, it’s somehow still rather quiet and relaxing, especially when near the ‘Reien’ (little … Continue reading

A visitor from Korea – Brussels part

So my friend arrived the very day I came back from Japan, and I was incredibly tired, but hospitality above everything! That was Friday evening. My friend was apparently even more tired than I was, because I was up around 6 am (a little jet-lagged maybe?) while he woke up only after 11. While I … Continue reading

Kyoto > Fukuoka > home

On my last day in Kyoto, I was asked to teach laundry folding. Apparently I’m good at that. And, looking at the review left by my WorkAway host, that was the thing they’ll remember me for. I like doing laundry, and I spent a lot of my time on the roof of the hostel folding … Continue reading

At last; Fushimi Inari Shrine (1)

On my very last day (okay, technically this was the second to last, but the last day I actually did sightseeing in Kyoto), Chelsea took me to Fushimi Inari Shrine. You know, that shrine pretty much everyone who visits Kyoto will definitely have on their list. I’m not among those people. I hadn’t been in … Continue reading

Yuzen dyeing in Kyoto

Since we didn’t have much work on our last days WorkAwaying at Peace House Sakura in Kyoto, Chelsea suggested Yuzen dyeing. We had never heard of anything like it, and it sounded like a very Kyoto-ish thing to do, so off we went on our second-to-last day as WorkAwayers. If you’re interested, here’s a map … Continue reading

A day with Chelsea (2)

When Chelsea and I were walking up Kiyomizu slope’s main road (i.e. the super-touristy path leading to Kiyomizu-dera), we bought ice cream and rested next to a refreshing fountain. Next to it were winding stairs on one side and a western-style building on the other. Once we finished our snack, we decided to mount these mysterious … Continue reading

A day with Chelsea (1)

On one of my last days, my co-worker Chelsea invited me to visit a temple with her. It was also one of her last days, and she’d been wanting to visit this temple for some time. Chelsea had been visiting many temples during her stay in Kyoto (more that the average person when visiting Kyoto … Continue reading
