I have come across 5 key factors worth examining that might help others have an enjoyable vacation.   # 1:  Purpose People travel for different reasons.

Exploring Daegu, South Korea: Persimmon Festival

 Persimmon Festival 청도반시축제    From my last blog post, you all know that I love festivals.  Well, not too long ago I attended the Persimmon Festival with my friend, Bona.

Cooking In Korea : Eggless Chestnana Bread (Chestnut & Bananas)

If you're asking yourself, "What can I do with chestnuts?" This recipe might be perfect for you.  After coming from the Chestnut Farm I spoke about in my last blog post, I had a lot of chestnuts and I needed something to do with them.   I played around and came up with this eggless Chestnana (chestnut + Bananas).  It came out pretty good. It isn't too sweet so you don't feel guilty eating it for breakfast, but sweet enough where it fulfills  that sweet tooth craving when it hits. Check it out below!   Eggless Chestnana Bread 1 loaf | bake time :...
