It’s getting cold. It was a scorching hot summer, and all of a sudden, I’m facing winter. Time flys; especially when you are enjoying the life. I wish you all are enjoying day by day wherever you are. I can only imagine how beautiful New England would be, since the leaves were about to change when I left, and how warm and sunny would be in New Zealand right now.
Without further a due, here are Runaway Subscription Saturday of this week.
First stop, on Travel Reportage, Same same but different: cave churches around the world. Interesting Cave Church photos. Now I think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever been to cave churches, but I have been to cave temples. Temples or Churches, both are places for praying, so it makes sense to be in the cave. There are quite a few of them in Korea. I’ve been but never noticed the similarities among them. Thanks to Giulia now I see it. Check out great photos of cave churches around the world.
Second stop, on Hike Bike Travel, Falling in Love With The Sidewalk Citizen Bakery, Calgary. Oh how I miss the good bread. Whole wheat, 12 grains, dark, full loaf of bread. Bread is not really in Korean food culture. Hence, bread, especially good bread is really hard to find. The whole bread section in supermarket, that’s a beautiful scene. My recent USA road trip, I visited many farmers’ markets and local bakeries around the east coast. Eating good quality bread from farmers market up in the mountain was very rewarding. When I go Calgary, I sure will check out the bakery.
Third stop, on Bitten by the Travel Bug, Sunday at the Adelaide Farmers Market. I’m a fan of farmers’ market. I grew up with the so called ‘traditional market’ in Korea. I guess the traditional market I grew up with is the one everybody calls Farmers market now. Somehow it’s now vanishing, but I still prefer to buy something from vendors by face to face, rather than massive products from the fancy supermarket. In this post, Nicole captures of Adelaide’s Farmers Market by photos. I always wanted to go to Adelaide, for some reason, and this post makes me want to go more.
Fourth stop, on Brendan’s Adventure, Life Lessons Learned by Rango Through Travel. Rango was not a children’s movie, in my opinion. Because, like Brendan said, this movie made me think a lot. It is a thinker that formed of animated children’s movie, and rather dark. The best part in travel is that really you can be whoever you want to be. For me, I found ‘true’ me during my travels. Without any judgement from people around me, while decision making, and while having fun, I could see who I really am. And also, yes, it’s hard to fit in sometimes. But it’s okay. It is just another way to learn this world and about ourselves.
Fifth stop, on y Travel Blog, I Don’t Own Anything. True. I am worried. And I know we are worried. There are many paths that we could’ve chosen. It’s a scary thing, those questions. We, many of us don’t have things that we can hold on to. Somehow experience doesn’t equalize with a house or a car. But no matter what we choose, we will always be wondered with ‘what if’. There’s no way go back, just trust our gut. Sometimes, so called normal or conventional living looks fantastic; because then we don’t have to worry about ‘what have I done?’. At least we would have a house, a car, a family, and the conventional lifestyle. It’s all about choice and believe and trust myself, my decision.
Extra special, on Jack and Jill Travel the World, Happy 6 Month Anniversary – An Awkward but Sincere Note For Y’all. I remember Jill and I used to talk about when are we going to start our travels, and where we are going. During their 6 months anniversary on the road, a lot changed for both of us. Jack and Jill have been on the road for six months now. I became full time travel blogger/ traveler for four months now. And what they said is true; our readers, our friends, our colleagues make the trip better. The support, the attention, and the generousity were very valuable and gave me an energy to do a better job. Cheers to Jack and Jill for their anniversary and hope everything will go better or just as good as last six months in the future.
