The following is my processing and recording some of what I learned during my Christmas travels.
Celebrating the New Year in Japan
Some of the traditions I encountered whilst in Japan for New Year’s (shogatsu).
Food in SKorea + Japan
Some photos of what I ate during my adventures. By no means exhaustive because I ate way too many things for that. Featuring crab brains, pig’s feet and octopus crackers. Enjoy!
New Year’s in Tokyo: 28th Dec – 7th Jan 2017
10 wonderful days of adventure, friends, a chopsticks crash-course, and welcoming 2017 in with style. Mt. Fuji, unexpected singing solos, paddling in the Pacific Ocean and so much more that cannot even be put into words.
22 things seen in Seoul
A few things that struck me as funny/strange/interesting during my time in Seoul!
Christmas in Seoul, South Korea: 23rd-27th December 2016
A happy tale about a few days spent with my friend Corliss who is currently in the middle of her year abroad in South Korea.
2km from North Korea – Visiting the DMZ
Where the loss of the people of Korea became real.
Adventure is Out There
The very beginning of my travelling fun this Christmas.
Thoughts on 2016
A glance back at the last 365 days in the life of Rachel.
As long as it is called ‘Today’
Hebrews 3 + 8.
As long as it is called ‘Today’, may I live by faith.
Advent – rest, celebration, action
I love the sense of expectation and hopefulness in this month – a sense of expectation with which days on the calendar are slowly crossed off and doors of advent calendars are opened.
How Today Was
What a gospel! And what a good end to the month of November and the season of autumn, here’s to advent!
