Monkey Business in Bali

One of the funnest things I did during my trip to Bali is spend time at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. Seeing hundreds of these little furry creatures running wild and free through rows and rows of trees is quite the experience. The monkeys are super friendly; they jump and climb all over you, and even pick your pockets (hence the lighter in his hands). Most aren’t afraid of the visitors, and it’s so cool to see them interact with not just humans, but with each other, too. And the forest is incredibly green and beautiful.

Korean Street Food in Seoul

I never would’ve imagined that I’d find all the street food my heart desires in Seoul, South Korea. I took this photograph during one of my many visits to the Myeong-dong, a super-busy district known primarily for shopping. But around five o’clock (1700) a bunch of little carts and stands roll in out of nowhere, and the streets start to smell like delicious-ness (yes, that is a word). Every few feet the aroma changes from sweet to salty to spicy to pungent. Even if you aren’t hungry, you will be after walking through the crowded lanes.

I especially loved the cheesy, grilled lobster tail and honey hand-spun candy (dragon’s beard). This street feast is everything (and has everything).
