Hope everyone is doing well 🙂
I was really surprised I still had readers after this long break so thank you for graciously stopping by and take time to read my old articles. They all need an update, especially Seoul because most places I mentioned do no longer exist.
To compensate here are some amazing people / places to check if you have not yet already.
Eileen Cho – if you are not following her on IG, you probably lived in a cave with no wifi. She is the most knowledgeable person when it comes to the food scene in Paris and beyond. I love her approach of Korean culture and mostly the fact that Eileen is not your typical American girl who will brush burning topics under the carpet but will rather call them out.
Plaq chocolate factory – It is no longer a secret that I always keep around me a chocolate bar. This is how I get my daily fix of magnesium-serotonin. I workout to eat chocolate. To reap all the benefits, always read the ingredients (not just for chocolate btw). Refined sugar and soy lecithin are no-no. 2 or 3 ingredients max and if possible sweetened with coconut sugar.
For lucky New Yorkers, Hu Kitchen have the best bars on earth.
Moon Juice – based in LA, I discovered them in NY through their crunchy crisps. Try the cosmic cocoa if you are around!
Museums to visit as soon as they reopen: Noguchi, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Leeum etc.

No words can describe how beautiful are the « Cinque Terre », located in the italian west riviera. I was lucky to spend few days there to explore each village. My favorite one was Riomaggiore, where we could observe a breathtaking sunset every night. If you are romantic, you will like Manarola, if you are into wine, Vernazza or Corniglia, and if you want to get some tan, Monterosso will be yours.
Like anywhere in Italy, food was incredible: you can see locals growing up their own vegetables and I ate the sweetest watermelon and grape. I also discovered a regional specialty called « Farinate », a very simple dish made with just chickpea, water and olive oil, to be eaten with another specialty from there, pesto.
To go there, the best way is by train. I would suggest to take at least 24hours to explore well and admire the sunset. There are hiking trails between each village, although many were closed when I was there.

Birthplace of the genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and setting of the musical play « The Sound of Music » starring Julie Andrews, Salzbourg is a lively city to stop by when traveling to Austria. It is also the only place where you can find the original Mozartkugeln, the small chocolate balls filled with marzipan. They were created in 1884 by Paul Fürst.

It has been a while and I am very sorry for not being more active! There were lots of change recently, I left France and I am currently in South Korea.
My favorite korean blogger, Jina just launched her magazine on June 11th and held an event on that special day at Kind, in Hannadam-dong. (You can follow her on Instagram: @jinaehan)
