I can’t help but think of Koko’s Kitchen in Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game when I think about Nishiki Market, also known by locals as Kyoto's Kitchen. The name, the place, they are so similar there is no way this is merely a coincidence. ► Ranking: #cleadiaper Nishiki Market 〒604-8054 Kyoto Prefecture, Kyoto, Nakagyo Ward, 富小路通四条上る西大文字町609番地 +81 75-211-3882 Hours: 10am...

Grocery shopping in Japan is like stepping into an alternate universe. The staples are there, bread, meat, fruit, candy, drinks, etc., but the availability of items on the island versus the mainland, and specific items that are exclusive to Japan is wholly different. Not to mention, the culture of Japan is totally ingrained into the grocery shopping rituals in...

One of my most favorite Icelandic Christmas traditions is the exchange of books on the evening of the 24th of December. After a feast, which begins promptly at 6p, presents are opened by all. Included in the gifts is always the traditional gift of a book. The rest of the evening and the entirely of Christmas Day is spent...

There is plenty of grocery shopping in Mexico to meet all your needs, including a Home Depot and a Sam’s Club!

Imagine shopping at the Dollar Tree for something other than an obligatory toddler birthday gift, a toilet scrubber, or candy for the movie theater.

Shopping at Bupyeong Underground Market with Kids in South Korea
The twins baptism is fast approaching, and since they are getting baptized in Korea we thought it would be special to incorporate as much of the Korean culture as possible. We’d been browsing the stores as we went about our adventures, but we needed to dedicate some time to really finding some dress clothes for both kids. The plan...
Seoul, Korea Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temple
Today we traveled from Songdo to Seoul to walk the grounds of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temple. The Korea LDS temple is located in a busy neighborhood in Seoul, South Korea. We always try to visit the local LDS temple when we go on our travels. It offers us permanence no matter where in...
Worldschooling on Jeju Island
Today was our last day in Korea’s Hawaii; a little paradise known as Jeju Island. We didn’t know before today, but Jeju Island played an integral part of the division between North and South Korea. In advance of our Korea DMZ Tour, and living here as temporary expats we wanted to spend some time worldschooling on Jeju to learn...
What to expect living at the Incheon Global Campus in South Korea
We did absolutely zero research before coming to live at the Incheon Global Campus, which really isn’t much different than everything we do. We used our wits and prior experience to help us plan for what we expected to happen and decided to wing the rest. This is what we wish we'd known before coming. What to Expect Living at...
Chinatown in Korea
No matter where you are in the world, or what nationality you hail from, there is just something comforting about a Chinatown. You can count on it in every city, from San Francisco to Incheon, Korea. Excellent Chinese food, red and gold decorations with dragons spewing fire, and a language that makes most foreigners sure the locals are gossiping...
