“Everyone makes mistakes when travelling or learns how to do things more easily, so I feel like that’s the purpose of blogs – to tell your story but then tell your readers how they could do it better than you did.” Amanda Slavinsky, a travel blogger living and working in Korea, nailed the point of...
Kimchi Tacos

Kimchi Tacos

As an avid blogger, photographer and vegan cook, Claire Harris’ site Kimchi Tacos covers these interests and more in a fun, diary-style record of her life.
