Top 100, Don't Just Google and Goodbyes

To start it all off a lekker little bit of news is that I made the Top 100 in the Big Blogger Exchange. Whoooooo. It is really exciting stuff. Let's hope that I have some luck on my side.

Back to it all. So this weekend saw something a little different. In all my time that I have spent in Seoul I have never had a picnic on the Han River. I don't know why. It's free, it' beautiful and you throw in some snacks and a couple bottles of Soju and you have yourself a pretty awesome day.

Sirens, Air Raids and Panic

Working in South Korea, is a constant adventure. I mean when I first decided to come here, the first reaction from most people was.....but why do you want to live where Kim Jong is in charge. I smiled and replied, well first off, that is not his name, and secondly, that is North Korea. For the more informed people, they still were wondering why I wanted to put myself in harms way. The answer to that was my first installment "Living in the Shadow of Nukes".

Old Spice Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket challenge is a great cause and is close to raising 40 million dollars. So anyone saying what's the point, well that is the point. Anyway. I have seen some great challenges, but for me this one takes the cake. The Old Spice Guy really knows what he is doing.....MOTHER OF PEARL.

Watch all of these and you WILL Shed a Tear.

I don't claim to be a man who never sheds a tear and I never will. There are moments when you just feel the need to shed a few. Well after watching these three videos I had a good few rolling down the old cheeks. Does it still make me a real man? Hell yes it does. Come and give them a watch. If you don't shed a few then I don't know what is wrong with you. Anyway I am off to chop some wood and eat some gravy. You know manly things.

Living in a World of Strangers.

I have touched on this in the past, but I have never really gotten deep. You know wet suit deep. So let's dive in....By definition a stranger means: a person whom one does not know or with whom one is not familiar. Or a person who does not know, or is not known in, a particular place or community. And yes I am sure no one would dispute that. What I now know is how traveling is able to turn a stranger from a random person you pass on a street to a friend you will have for life.

Thought for the Week: Strangers, Grass and Big City Life.

So as most people would agree. Traveling is great, of course it comes with its challenges but that is all part of the awesome adventure. You learn so many different things about yourself that you wonder who that stranger was you left behind all those months ago. There are also those adjustments that you need to make. For me coming from Africa and growing up in a small town or village if you will, meant that the big city brought something new to the table. Again this weekend I found myself in the capital of South Korea, Seoul and it seems that it is possible to make every experience unique.

It's Friday! Let's Dance Around!

This has been one long week. I mean a week that I have not had in a while. As I write this it is 2:36 pm on a Friday afternoon and I am watching that clock on the wall. By clock on the wall I mean cell phone of course. Which I pull out my pocket every five minutes to see if something interesting has happened on one of the 6 social media apps I have. But let's get back to the point. Whether you are sitting in South Africa or you are somewhere else around the world, I am sure you are glad it is Friday. Even my unemployed friends will be breathing a sigh of relief as they finally have someone to hang out with now....

Becoming an Identity Thief

I had never imagined that when I left for the States I would come back a completely different person. We used to mock those certain individuals that did one of what I called the “Big Three life-changing experiences”: teaching English in Asia, a ski season in Colorado or those annoying Facebook official Yachties. Get real. Why spend your time scrubbing boats when you should be studying or working? Something told us that a loss was made by those who did that. This loss was time.
