      You are mentioned many times my dear!! :)

    Wow! I am so impressed with you. I love to travel as well, but I have kept it to the domestic USA side. Funny, that you leave for South Korea shortly. I am doing the exact same thing for China very soon.
    Your story is inspiring. Best of luck to you!

      That’s cool that you are going to China. I look forward to reading about your chinese adventures. Thanks for reading my blog, love getting feed back so really appreciate your nice comments.

    I want to be a traveler and journalist like you. :D But I know this is not that easy. Becoming a journalist may not be that much tough (I’m already into it), but being a traveler (while not having a lot of money) is definitely tough.

    Good that you enjoy your life. :)

      Thanks for your nice comments Sajib. If you put your mind and your heart to it, I’m sure you too could become a Journalist!

    I really like your blog!

    I wondered if you’d be interested in being featured on a Korean Travel Website? Here’s the link to it:

    We started the site as a pilot, with just Gangwon-do, but it’s been so successful that we’re launching version two really soon with information on the whole of Korea.

    We’d love to feature some information from you or your blog if you have some you think would be suitable – we would link to you and hopefully increase traffic to your blog also… See for details on what’s in it for you :-)

    Hope you like the website! Look forward to hearing from you!

        Hard to go all over with a motorcycle…unless we take our dream 3 year trip. Might be staying in North America for awhile riding on our bikes until then. Have a great time.

  10. January 12, 2012 / 10:01 pm

    I read about her…great stuff….we will one day make the trip from Ireland to South Africa…need to find the time and get bikes over there we think…that would be a long trip…we have grandiose plans…just have to work out the $$ and time away from our jobs. I am just starting a new job so I need to behave for a while before telling them I need time off! LOL

      January 13, 2012 / 10:02 am

      Wow that sounds like an EPIC trip. If you start in Ireland be sure to look me up…although I myself might be back in Africa…where my heart belongs! :)

      You are right…many, many beautiful places in the world left to visit! But I’m only 26…so have all the time and energy in the world!

      • March 20, 2012 / 12:32 am

        True! And that’s even better, you’re still 26, you still have the wonderful opportunities to see the marvels of the world! Awesome! With your energy and venturesome, I’m sure you’ll eventually be able to visit all countries listed in the UN… :-)
