Time to travel

Korea is now in reach. I’ll be attending the International Summer School at the Univ. of Seoul this coming summer. I can’t wait. But the prep for it has become such a headache. I’m still trying to book the tickets.

But when I’m abroad. I’ll be sure to share more of my experiences and with it… a new layout.
