This was one of my favourite meals I had in Korea, we had delicious bibimbap and bulgogi beef in a little local Korean BBQ restaurant near Bongeunsa temple in Gangnam Seoul. That day was one of the best days in Seoul, Damien and I had a fantastic time from buying a new camera, exploring a temple, dancing in front of the Ganganam Style monument, getting caught in the rain and drinking milky tea πŸ’•#IDidntEatTheKimchi #butDamienAteTheKimchi @damient4 Also that man on the right stared at Damien for the entire meal πŸ˜‚ Being stared at was something we had to get used to very quickly over there. I was surprised at how few western tourists there was, we stood out like sore thumbs.

Unachievable life goal: be as cool as a Korean.

The Japanese strongly believe in the Power of Tea because it is valued for it’s curative properties. β€œMorning tea brings good fortune,”

They also believe the properties in Green Tea Make Life Richer:
It contains five times as much Vitamin C as a lemon. Green tea is known to have the power of boosting the blood vessels and circulatory system, and stave off germs. It also has catechin, a powerful antioxidant, that keeps cells from aging and help prevent high blood pressure and diabetes. (No wonder the Japanese age so well!)

With its extraordinary qualities for keeping people with better health and keeping our body’s cells from aging, green tea has become a trustworthy, therapeutic part of life in Japan. Green tea, indeed, is a key player to the healthy lifestyles and long life of Japanese people. //

πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ P R I D E πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ Yesterday in Dublin thousands of people gathered to march and watch the march of the pride parade. The atmosphere was electric, full of smiles and laughter. It was a fantastic day!
-
Unfortunately it was not a similar experience in Turkey. People trying to march in a pride parade were shot with rubber bullets by police because the march had been banned by the government.
It is reasons like this why pride month is so important, sometimes we forget that other countries do not have the same freedoms as we do.
Straight or LGBTQ it is important for us all to show our support and attend events like this, no one on this planet should be suppressed or feel like they can't come out for fear of being in danger. I'm so extremely proud to be from a country that is so accepting and so ahead of many others especially considering Irelands strict Catholic past.
My heart goes out to those who were forced to stop marching in Turkey and I think they are incredible people for standing up for what they believe in. β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ
