Inspiration | November 7

Inspiration November 7

I had a few different obsessions this week. One of them was itinerary ideas for a 2-month-ish trips to South East Asia, which was so fun to research. This article was awesome, although I probably wouldn’t follow his recommendations to a T. This other great article gave more flexible suggestions and lots of practical information.

Of course if I’m back on trip planning, I have my spreadsheet started and my packing list on the go (another of this week’s obsessions). I really liked this packing list for a round-the-world trip, and this one for digital nomads. This one was awesome too (and very detailed).

I think momondo is my new favourite website for finding cheap, short flights.

Since I live in Korea and see couples in matching outfits all the time, I thought this video explaining the phenomenon was fascinating and really well done.

The new A Beautiful Mess shop is so cool! I love all their new products.

I would love some squash toasts right about now.

This article about being a tourist in North Korea was fascinating.

I picked up some interesting ideas from this mini tutorial about editing photos on your phone.

I was strongly considering doing the teaching assistant program in France this week, and this blog post was quite a help while I was researching the whole thing. As it stands now, I don’t think I’ll do the program (though still may move to France!) but the article was helpful anyways.


There are so many exciting things on the horizon it’s hard to keep them all straight in my head. As my mom says, I have a hamster brain at the moment, the wheels are always turning a thousand times a minute and new ideas are popping in all the time. It’s crazy how quickly I am running through things and switching off from one thing to the next. I’m excited it’s Friday. I’m happy for the weekend. Have an amazing one yourself!

  1. The France Teaching Assistant Program sounds really interesting, I wanted to send it to my sister but when I looked on their website it says you need to be a U.S. citizen to be eligible: CITIZENSHIP: Candidates must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Foreign nationals with a U.S. Green Card may only apply.

    Have you heard of Canadians being eligible for this program? Let me know, because I think my sister would really love doing this after she graduates if she can!

  2. Just discovered your blog through the link you included to my southeast asia post. I gave it a bit of an overhaul today and created some maps as well, which might be worth checking out. I’m enjoying browsing your blog as you’ve curated a lot of interesting and inspirational stuff, so will keep following! Hope you’re enjoying the expat ESL life. :)

    1. Hey Marek! Thanks for your comment. Yes!! The map was completely worth checking out! Your site is so inspirational, it has been such a massive help as I plan my trip. I was so excited to see your comment – I’m flattered you like my blog too. :) Thanks for creating so much awesome content.
