Back in South Korea, we paid a visit to Tongyeong, a southern port city famous for its chong mun gim bap: fermented octopus mixed with a variety of local spices, held together by a delicate seaweed wrap. While it was pretty good, we ended up ordering roughly two pounds of the stuff, stuffing it into my backpack, and bringing it along on a 6k island hike – because picnics are fun! It’s been nearly two months, and I’ve still yet to rid my bag of that foul, hot octopus stench.
But I digress. This is a story about buses.

Here’s to you, hostel rat.
While other travelers may choose to stay in hostels because they’re, you know, cheaper and generally have friendly-ish, English-speaking staff that provide useful tips and tricks for getting around a given area, you know better. You’re above that amateur-hour backpacker BS, that’s for sure!
I’m not really sure how best to begin here.
Over time, I’m hoping for this space to evolve into something that you’ll want to come back to and read on a semi-regular basis. The general idea is for this blog to be an outlet in which I share some general thoughts and observations from my upcoming travels in Asia.
