Every journey has its hiccups. Going from Seoul to Hong Kong meant an 8 hour layover in Beijing. Geographically this is mind boggling, but the cheapest flight happened to be along two popular routes. That layover, being at night, meant I was placed in a hotel, free of charge. This sounds great, except upon arrival […]
Project Iko takes on the 10,000 won bill
Here’s how not to plan a trip around the world. Seriously… you should plan these things out months in advance. But then it wouldn’t be as much fun, would it? After leaving my job, Japan, and America; I am now in Seoul, South Korea. It’s a fun and beautiful place to be, but upon my […]
I’m lying on a bunk-bed on the 4th floor of a guesthouse in a a grungy back-alley of Seoul. Is it a good time to post an update? I think so. From just the first 9 days, I’ve had setbacks almost daily. This isn’t to say the experience has been terrible, or even that these […]

Heightened, my hands started to move instinctively, threading, feeling, and making loops. Sitting down to watch the newest cinematic rendition of ‘Les Miserables’ and I couldn’t help but notice this older theatre ran […]
Sitting on the runway for an hour and a half, delirious without any exact required place to be, I took a nap. It was nice actually. Quite nice.
