I had the nicest day with Jason's family yesterday. One of his sisters invited me to go along with them on a hiking trip to Springbrook and omfg, I had 10 years worth of exercise and almost died of exhaustion. Unfit 2k12. Nonetheless, it was worth the walk to see the waterfall!

After the waterfall we drove up a bit higher through the fog to see another lookout but when we got there...


Credits to Jason for a lot of the photos in today's post. I can't believe it'll be 2013 soon! Hopefully I have the energy to do a review of this year :) Hope all of you are well and incase I don't end up posting tomorrow, have a happy new year! Xoxo, S.

Travel Diaries - Taiwan: Day 06

It's been a week since I arrived back in Brisbane which means that this post is long overdue. I'm very sorry but I have no idea what happened to me when I got home. Anyway! Here is my one and only post about my days in Taiwan with Alice and Sandra after leaving Korea. The reason that I haven't blogged about anything else is because all we did was shop!! The clothing is dirt cheap and the branded makeup is all American prices give or take a few dollars. On the last day in Taiwan, the lovely little Evelyn took me to Taipei Zoo and I absolutely LOVED it. Sorry in advance for the murkiness in today's photos!

Butterfly room!! (Sorry Alis)

Unsuccessful attempt #1


The flight back to Australia was so much more enjoyable because we all had a bit more space on the plane. I  unpacked as soon as I got home since I couldn't sleep and wow, I completely forgot how much I spent.

Anywaaaaay, I'm so excited for new years eve and new years day. It's not that I haven't enjoyed this year (it's actually been one of my favourites), but there's something so refreshing about celebrating a new start with the people you love most. I'll definitely be doing a post looking back on this year :') I hope all of you have been well and that you all had a merry Christmas!! Xoxo, S.

Travel Diaries - Korea: Day 19

I can't that I've already left Korea. I probably should've spent less time sleeping and more time outside but oh well. We met up with Brian again so that he could take us to a place that they kept calling "the light area". I just realised that I haven't been naming any actual locations in the posts because I don't know what ANY of them are called. Anyway, we started off our night by having dinner at this adorable little restaurant that mainly served pasta and katsudon dishes.

After dinner, we walked around the area and did our best to not freeze to death. It was a pretty tiny space but everything was put together so nicely that it took quite a while to get through everything.

Indoor nursery at the area!

I just wanted to let you know that I've arrived safely in Taiwan and have settled in at Alice's apartment. I'll be posting soon! Hope you're all well xoxo.
