2012 – A Farewell

2012 – A Farewell

So here we are at the beginning of another year. And as glory would have it, we didn’t die! I guess the Mayans just ran out of paper. The Christmas festivities are all wrapped up and now 2012 can no longer be a number synonymous with the future but instead another one of those years that … Continue reading

Wanderaboot – 50 videos old!

We have just posted our 50th video online and to celebrate we’ve created a “Videos” tab on the homepage so you can easily access all of our videos and watch our story from the beginning. It was only 10 months ago when we packed up our cats and kissed goodbye to Toronto. Now here we … Continue reading

If The Glove Fits *Toma Talks*

If The Glove Fits *Toma Talks*

This weekend we decided to explore the mountain that lies closest to our house. Geumnyeonsan (금련산) (“san” is Korean for Mountain so in English it’d be Mt Geumnyeon). Why this wasn’t the first one we climbed, seeing as it’s literally just across the street from our apartment, I’m not sure, but on Sunday morning we … Continue reading

Hiking Seokbulsa 석불사

Hiking Seokbulsa 석불사

As if randomly happening across Miss Alyssa on a Friday night, climbing the Busan Tower and discovering Jagalchi Market on Saturday and conquering Taejondae on Sunday wasn’t enough, Monday came around. Monday was the official day of rest after Chuseok and somehow we managed to allow Alyssa to talk us into doing the opposite of … Continue reading

추석 Chuseok 1: Nampo & Jagalchi

Anyong! The choking heat of the Korean summer has finally calmed itself, Iiago, and we have been introduced to the glory that is autumn in Busan. The days are happily up to mid twenties but the evenings invite you to sport a sweater, paired with a fashionable scarf if you so dare. It truly is … Continue reading

Wanderabooties Switchin’ Gears

So there you have it, that was our round-about journey to Korea. And now we’re here. Busan. B-town. Living it large. We’ve been here for 3 months now and are starting to feel somewhat settled (although “settled” is not really a word synonymous with “Korea” – in more ways than one). We rearranged our shoebox-sized … Continue reading

Do You Know Ed?

HOWWWDEEEE Welcome to Edmonton, Alberta, where the skies are big, the welcomes are warm  and the portions are a’ hefty. Welcome to Canada’s America. That may sound like a bizarre introduction to a city, but what with all the conservative politics, wide wide streets and cowboy hats you just seem to get a certain Wild West … Continue reading

Vancouver? I barely knew her!

Vancouver? I barely knew her!

g’day g’day! I’ve always wanted to go to Vancouver, even before I moved to Canada, I was fascinated with the Rockies and Canadian Wilderness. To be honest I’m not sure why I picked Toronto, it couldn’t BE less coastal and mountainy, but that’s another story. The point is I was FINALLY going to get to see Vancouver … Continue reading

A Wales of a Time

A Wales of a Time

To get to Wales from Glastonbury you have to do four things; Make it to Bristol. Navigate around Bristol. Leave Bristol. Cross the Bristol Channel. The 1st one was easy. The second one was near impossible. Maybe if you’re local the roadsigns make sense and maybe we were just having a bad experience but for … Continue reading
