The beautiful town of Pornic in France is just a day trip away from Nantes. Being just an hour’s drive away, you would be crazy not to take the opportunity to visit this very attractive little town. Filled with history from its ancient past, there are plenty of things to do and places to explore. That is why I have come up with this travel guide of Pornic.
I’ve been to many weddings in my time. In fact I have already been invited to 5 this year. But at none of them have I been asked to rub oil and flour onto the groom’s dad’s face and body. I am honoured to have been invited to a close friend’s Hindu wedding in India as an honorary member of his family.
As I looked up, all I could see were coffins above me. No. I hadn’t been buried alive, this is Echo Valley where some of the hanging coffins of Sagada are. Why are the hanging coffins of Sagada in the Philippines hung on the cliff side?
Whilst in Seoul, South Korea, I witnessed history in the making as millions of people join the Seoul protests and took to the streets. The protested against their president, Park Geun-hye. Imagine a country where they make their voice heard in a peaceful way with a tsunami of candles!
As I stood in the crowd of people, there was no pushing, no acts of violence but masses of people supporting each other. The peaceful Seoul protest was moving and compelling.
I always feel lucky when I come across a hidden gem of an experience. This happened to me in Seoul when I was wandering around the Gwanhun-dong region. We came across the Templestay Information Centre which was advertising free cultural experiences that lets you be crafty in Seoul.
We thought to ourselves, why not? It’s cold and it looks warm in there. After all, it’s free. Read about my experience about being culturally crafty in Seoul.
