Talking Personal: A Month Away (Far, Far Away)

It's been awhile has it not.

I was on such a blogging roll before I disappeared, but I do have a somewhat valid reason. I spent a month away in Japan and Korea! A very well deserved (?) holiday I would say. The last Talking Personal was in February, so hopefully I remember what I actually got up to!

Honestly, there wasn't anything super exciting between February and mid April. I worked as per usual, got my blogging game back on track and watched the most amount of movies I've ever seen a year in the span of 4 months. Favourite movie so far this year would have to be Logan. Checked out a couple of brunch places and saw Justin Bieber live! I didn't particularly love his concert but can still tick that off as something I've always wanted to do. I actually wrote a post about all the brunch places I've been to so read up on them here.

Something else that I managed to get around to was going to the gym again. I've been trying to get my fitness levels up and combined with playing in a Futsal team I'd like to think that I'm seeing some results. Shoutout to my girl Cindy for being my trainer, despite the numerous times I complain whilst working out. Footy season started as well, and it's been really good seeing Carlton lift - there is hope guys!

I flew out to Japan mid April, and spent 10 days with a friend before doing Korea and the rest of Japan alone. Everyone who goes to Japan comes back raving about it and yet, I felt like I didn't love it as much as I thought I would. Perhaps it's because I've lived in Korea - I have ties there, so many memories and such a comfortable feeling about the place - but I definitely prefer it over Japan. The two countries are similar in some ways, but have such different vibes. Japan has an amazing culture that takes time, a lot of time, to absorb. Korea is a lot more laid back, and really the best times are when you're eating, partying and shopping. I was super excited to return to Korea after 2 years and reunite with my exchange friends and shop - I went a little crazy shopping wise. I still think Japan was beautiful and I'm so grateful to be able to travel and see the world. I also got to meet some wonderful people who made the trip so much more fun. Expect to see haul videos and a travel VLOG soon! In the meantime here are a few snaps.

I've been back for a week now and have jumped back into work again as well working on future content so keep an eye out.
