2014 was a year filled with travels, good eats, new relationships, and most importantly I was able to train myself to have a positive outlook towards life. Through disappointments I learned to accept failure and look forward to future successes.
1. I travelled to Taiwan.
Land of breathtaking architecture as well as nature, rich in history and mind-blowing deliciousness.
I scoured the never-ending rows of stalls at the night markets for strange and delicious delicacies and gained about three kilograms through the process.
I also had THE BEST shaved ice I ever had IN MY LIFE while I was in Taiwan. Please, if you go to Taiwan eat all the shaved ice you can. Even during the winter (I went in January and it was still freezing BUT SHAVED ICE).
2. I learned that being an adult is perpetually tiring but there are ways to over come it.
3. I travelled to Japan for the first time, and became enchanted by sight, sounds, tastes, and well everything really.
I was mesmerized by the red tori gates in Inari Fushimi Taisha.
I also became obsessed with Japanese convenience stores (combini) and ate delicious snacks every day while I was there.
4. I explored Jeonju, city of gastronomy.
5. I travelled to Japan again. This time Nagoya.
Timed dinners to get the best discounted prices of bentous at department stores, and unabashedly ate them in the park like bums. Afterwards, I carried trash in my bag for forty minutes looking for a trash can.
This just about sums up my year, how was your 2014?
Thank you to all who have stuck around to read the random musings of a Korean girl who likes to eat. I hope to blog much more in 2015.
Cheers to a great year 🙂
