So basically, I am THE WORST at updating my blog. I have this huge backlog of posts from Shanghai and I never did post about going to Italy (it was pretty boring anyway) and they are all just sitting there in my Drafts folder. I feel like I only write […]

The beauty of working from home: one night, Mike and I decided to go Nagoya. We decided this around 2am and I booked bus tickets and a hotel room for the next day, because why not? Why not go to Nagoya on a whim? Part of the reason was that […]

Here’s just some more random photos from Seoul. Mostly of food and makeup, because 99% of my income goes towards those two items. I can never get over how cheap yet amazing the food and makeup (and EVERYTHING) is in South Korea.  Korean alcohol is basically cheaper than water. The […]

Do you live in the USA? If so, you should TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS DEAL! Airfare (on Star Alliance airlines!) and four nights at a Tokyo hotel for $780, taxes included! I checked, but it’s not valid from Toronto. If it was, you know I’d already have booked it.

Sometimes you just want to do something fun with your weekend. Sometimes you just can’t pass up a cheap fare and a lot of miles. Sometimes you just feel like going to Hawaii for one night. Why not? Yes, I am the kind of weirdo who is very happy to […]
