I’ve never seen so many museums in a single country than I have in South Korea. It’s staggering actually. There’s everything from museums on folklore to Leonardo da Vinci, Hello Kitty, and even African art. Some of these museums get a little… different. How about one dedicated to toilet culture around the world? Or even erotica? […]
Sometimes you see something and have to buy it. I’m a big fan of the skincare here in Korea. It’s well priced, has great effects, and there’s about 5,000 different things to try. One of those things I didn’t anticipate trying was something called Moist Lover. It’s one of Dr. Jart’s new rubber masks and […]
I have saved over $3,000 in Korea. No, it’s not from penny pinching and transferring money home (although I do that too), no, it’s because I went to the dentist. Yup. The dentist. Dental care in South Korea is cheap. It’s not insanely cheap, no, but it’s much cheaper than back home in the United […]
This edition of Between the Sheets will be a little different. The majority of the time when I travel it’s by using hostels and the occasional budget hotel. This is typically because I am generally destitute and the fact I see my accommodations as a place I simply sleep; I don’t intend to hang around […]
안녕하세요! It’s coming up on two months in Korea. It feels like two years and at the same time only two weeks. Moving to a new country, especially one that speaks a different language, is a stressful time. Even visiting a country where you can’t read or write the language can be a nightmare. That’s […]
Sounds of Seoul is a series for Curly In Korea where I’ll be making short soundscapes of locations around the capital. First up is Bongeunsa Temple, a Buddhist temple in the heart of Gangnam; a surprising oasis of calm. Please feel free to listen to the soundscape as you read.
When I was invited to go check out some off track horse racing betting facilities that had just opened up, my mind sort of froze. I had never been to a horse race before, I had never bet on anything other than the clunky slot machines at a resort’s casino; I had no idea what […]
So something magical happened: I went to my first KPOP concert here in Korea. It was loud, bright, full of flashing lights, screaming fangirls, and one very charming and goofy singer with a killer voice and the ability to out dance all his back-up dancers. Yeah, I went and saw XIA aka Kim Junsu (김준수).
I have been in South Korea for a grand total of five days thus far. So far I have broken every blood vessel in my shoulders hauling my luggage around, combated jet lag, had a health check where I got a bunch of suction cups put on my boobs, and taught my first theater classes […]
Welcome to Between the Sheets! No, this isn’t a NC-17 addition of The Nerdventurists, but rather where we’ll be reviewing hostels, guesthouses, B&Bs, hotels, and corners of airports where we’ve stayed. I’m a big fan of hostels, they’ve rarely done me wrong, and most of the time they’re super charming. I think a lot of my […]
