Exploring Waterfalls on Jeju Island with Kids
A double bed and a twin bed is just not enough for a family of six. The twins took the floor mat, I took the double with the squirmy baby discovering her fine motor skills and Daddy shared with Eclair. I was up all night. Every time I heard a grunt, or a deep breath, or heard the bed...

Girls Day in Korea see the sky

Namdaemun Market in Seoul, South Korea
There is just one thing I would like to ask of Korea, yes, of the country as a whole. It might be a little selfish, it might be a little culturally insensitive, it might even be obnoxious as a visitor, but why? why for heaven's sake do you put sugar on garlic bread? On corn dogs? Or anything savory?...
