I missed blogging.
I wanted to write a cohesive post but editing all my back up posts was overwhelming. Alas, I could only come up with this post as I have jet lag again and my body is in shock from the cold after getting used to sunny weather for nearly a month in Korea.
My family worry about me when I start taking pictures of what is mundane to them.
Take this hand dryer / infrared steriliser for instance.
In the spirit of trying to get into shape but have fun while at it, I tried aerial yoga which works your body in a different way than any other exercise. I did have fun learning new muscle memories but don't think I will keep it up in London.
Globalisation does indeed make jet lag the main reminder that you aren't in the proverbial Kansas anymore and yet there are those little touches that make you realise that you are in a different place.
Prada bags are being sold on TV which I found odd but then I was reminded of Net a Porter so I must be more open minded.
Autumn in Korea and most of East Asia is absolutely glorious.
But the cosmos flower fields of Korea are synonymous with fall.
We went to a park that was the former city dump of my youth - there were signs saying to be careful because of all the fumes due to the garbage underneath.
My family gave me a proper tutorial in making the national dish of kimchi.
Koreans are so healthy and manage to keep trim considering how much they eat and I am sure kimchi is part of the reason.
It wa great catching up with old school friends.
The airport in Seoul was voted one of the best in the world and the shopping rivalled any world class shopping centre.
I saw these traditional brass dinnerware with lids to keep rice and soup warm.
I am planning to do a Korean beauty post as I learned a few more tips this trip.
I bought so many sheet masks because in Korea the latest motto is one day/one sheet mask.
I just adore tagging along with anyone who is looking for a flat.
It is like art and science and math coming to life.
I nearly froze to death but it was such an emotional reunion seeing these two doggies the other day.
I really do hope to catch up on blogging as I didn't end up posting as much as I would have liked.
Did you see instagram is now doing a Facebook and I got an email the other day suggesting that I should follow my brother's former flatmate from a decade ago, my builder I fired more than a decade ago, a friend of a friend who I find incredibly boring, and the mother of one of my husband's god children.
For that reason, I have put my Instagram account on private. But is it all a futile exercise?
I am going to be a spoil sport and not engage in any Halloween activities but look forward to all of yours x
