South Korea - Day 4 - Gyeongju & Busan

Another catch-up post...

This morning we stopped by 7-Eleven to pick up triangular gimbap for breakfast, then caught a bus to Bulguksa Temple, on the outskirts of Gyeongju.

Life This Week: Irises, Pizza, and a Picture of the Sea

This week brought some rain, but it's now summery enough that I got settled out on the balcony to write this post -- which was great until I remembered why I don't sit on the balcony (mosquitoes!). I've been pretty busy at work, so don't have much to tell. Some things I've appreciated have been:

Life This Week: Banff, Succulents, and Wellspring

This week has been steadily busy, but in a good productive sort of way. And it's been so beautifully warm and sunny, with 10 pm sunsets; I'm definitely appreciating walking over driving whenever I can. Here are a few other highlights from the week:

Victoria for Victoria Day

I haven't been making much headway in blogging about South Korea/Japan, but I'm not too fussed; sorry about the haphazardness though. Meanwhile I'll keep posting about other stuff, because residency's racing by (PGY-4 in less than 6 weeks, um hello) and if I don't keep some sort of record I'll probably wonder where five years disappeared to.

I spent this past Victoria Day long weekend visiting my family in Victoria. It was blue skies and mid-20s all weekend -- just perfect.

South Korea - Day 1 - Busan

It's been far too long since I've posted here; residency has been busy lately and every time I sit down to write I feel like I should be using the time to study (thanks, in-training exam :(). I do, however, want to catch up on posting about my vacation in South Korea and Japan, an amazing trip I took with my mom last month. She took months to plan out the entire itinerary and did such a great job! I have tons of journal notes and photos, which I'll work on cobbling together into posts in the weeks to come. Here's day one...

Banff Weekend

I'm currently sitting in the Taipei airport (vacation, finally!), but wanted to catch up on posting about last weekend, which was just the best. My co-resident got married in Banff and all seven residents in our program made it out for the wedding, babies and Royal College exams notwithstanding.

Life This Week: A Little Snow, Sabor, & Lunch Traditions in the Making

It's been another good week, though abruptly wintery. It was nice and sunny when I walked into work on Friday, but was practically blizzarding out when I left my call shift the next morning. I had no clue because I hadn't seen a window; it felt like I'd walked through the wardrobe.

Pulled Pork Pizza

I've never actually made a pizza before (unless the frozen ones count) and today seemed like a good day to bake something. I also had some pulled pork leftovers to use up. A pulled pork pizza was in the cards.
