After graduating from high school I decided to move to Germany (my wanderlust kicked in). I moved to a small town in Bavaria to work at a guest house.

She is such an awesome friend that she endured a 36 hour trip to come and visit me in Korea ( Air China is not her favorite airline to say the least).
|I had to introduce her right away to Paris Baguette, the most popular coffee chain in Korea.|
|I am suffering from summer camp fatigue and her from jet lag, so coffee has become a very important part of our travel plans. It’s necessary to always know where the nearest coffee shop is 🙂|
While out and about in downtown Ulsan, we decided to be friendly and make a stop to say hello to the most famous asian icon and possibly pick up a Hello Kitty pencil or two.
Side note: I tend to get sick if I am sleep deprived or stressed, and summer camp was nothing but sleep deprivation and stress.
With a scratchy throat and the beginnings of a cough, I was slightly worried because every time Rachel has visited me in the last three years I have gotten pneumonia during some part of her visit.
Low and behold, she arrived, and my scratchy throat blossomed into a full blown nasty cough. Luckily (because of the last three pneumonia visits), she came fully stocked and prepared.

Hoping to avoid a second trip to the ER!
