I know it's just a chit-chat, but I've been asked these questions a lot.
A. "Why do you go to there? Work? Vacation?"
B. "Is your husband okay with that? Doesn't he miss you? Don't you miss him?"
What I do makes so much sense to me but not to other people. I don't have to excuse, but it's interesting to rethink about it logically.
I borrowed a bike from my host (who's btw so great!) to go to the grocery store.
My legs are so much shorter than average American guys. And I realised that the bike doesn't have a brake after I started pedalling!
Luckily I ran into my house mate and she taught me how to ride the bike. It's called beach bike and it's got a foot brake (which I haven't even heard of).
After 10 minutes practice, I went to the grocery store and got my food! It felt sooooo good! The quest with this beach bike thingy made my one-mile travel so much fun!
I hurt my crotch but I did it!
I'm in Venice, LA.
I only booked a room for first 2weeks.
It's still a little bit chill.
Maybe I'd better go a little north, inland next a couple weeks and get back to beach when it gets hotter.
I'm too old to have an overnight layover (I could still do that!), though, 3 hours layover is fun.
You can drink with your new friend who you met during the first flight.
You can hit on a guy and make him buy you a drink. (Ah, yeah, you can do that anytime.)
If there's no one looks fun, you can get a massage or mani-pedi, take some photos, have some local food of somewhere not your destination saying "I'm going to LA and why am I eating a kimchi here?".
I had no idea Incheon Airport was this great. It's heaven.
There's free sleeping couches, free shower and free high speed wifi (seriously, it's so comfortable). We, nomad ppl, could live here.
Massage was not so cheap, though. As a guy leaving Korea says, it's the best way to spend the rest of Korean Won.
"Shame can't survive empathy."
"You can survive it. I know it's hard. It may not be painless, quick or easy, but you can insist on a different ending to your story."
"The theory of minority influence, proposed by social psychologist Serge Moscovici, says that even in small numbers, when there's consistency over time, change can happen."
