#We are the Champions!!

That moment where going home from work, you become an involuntary participant in the winter Olympics. . . . Ice Slip & Slide Gold Champion – that’s me! * This is why Changchun is home to China’s Olympic Ice Skating team. . .

I went out walking one mornung in spring πŸŽΌ

‘By the river I went walking
When my troubles came to mind.
But I did not stop for them
And they could not catch up to me.’

This is the breath-taking park at #Arashiyama in #Kyoto Japan. My friends went to find the #monkey πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Špark at the top of the mountain, but I’m not a HUGE fan of monkeys up close – and – personal. So I just walked along the river. This day is one of my most precious memories. The atmosphere just soothes your soul ❀️.

It’s Freezing (literally)

When temperatures hit -32C (about -25F), the inside of my pantry window turns into #art!

No, but seriously, I have about an inch of #ice INSIDE my window. My refrigerator pantry turned into a walk-in freezer. All my #fruit froze πŸ˜­β„οΈ

Yeongjong-do Island

The eastern end of Yeongjong-do Island in #Inchon, #southkorea.

The ICN airport is on one end, and this park & #fishmarket is at the other. We’re staying at the Royal Emporium hotel tonight. My school booked a cheap hotel for us, which happened to be a brand new, beautiful place right on the #waterfront. One hour Ride on bus 203 from the airport. No foreigners, and lots of yummy cafes, Fish shops, Beer & chicken stops, etc. So much fresh Flounder, Lobsters, Shrimp, and crabs! The crowd is great & atmosphere is upbeat. You can also take the ferry to Wolmido from here!
