I am really enjoying working out at the moment and am well on my way to succeeding in my 9 week challenge to get my bikini body back in time for my trip to Cambodia. Apart from cutting out all…

Small Town, Big Lights

It’s hard to believe that I have been back in South Korea for nearly 2 months now. As the, much overused, saying goes…time flies when you’re having fun! As it’s my second time here, all the things that were new,…
