Tuesday: I’m going to Hong Kong
The adventure to Hong Kong began with a 9pm bus ride from Gwangju to Incheon. Incheon is a smaller city not far from Seoul. The international airport; Incheon International Airport is just outside the city.
Now you might not think there is a difference of busing to Incheon itself and the Incheon International Airport, but there is. Tickets were sold out so far in advance directly to the airport, that I had to bus to Incheon the city and then cab to the airport – a $40 ride on top of my $30 bus ticket.
I began to gather it wouldn’t be a cheap trip.
Now choosing the 4am flight to save some bucks and only being in Hong Kong for a few days, I knew ahead of time sleep would be put on the back burner this trip. As expected, when we touched down in Hong Kong around 8am, we got directly into sightseeing.
One Year Anniversary in South Korea
Today marks my one year anniversary in South Korea. As I write this I’m on a bus back to my home home city, Gwangju from another city a few hours away I visited for the night with some friends.
It’s awesome you can bus across the country in less than 6 hours. Most places worth venturing are 3 to 4 hours away max. I’ve got a love/hate relationship with the buses here. Sometimes they seem to drag on, other time they give me moments to pause and appreciate the country and get into my head to think.
It’s a rainy day, as is usual in the summer here. But the mountains are covered in luscious green that is especially blooming today from the recent rain. There’s also a thick fog between the mountains where in most cases you can’t see the summits.
-Six Things Your Credit Card Company Doesn’t Want to Tell You
GUEST POST By Josh Wilson, a Millennial who hates credit cards and all banking fees ever created. Josh is looking to be thought leader with his new blog: Family Faith Finance.
On a national level, Americans owe about $1 trillion in credit card debt. If you break up the puzzle pieces, the average American household owes somewhere around $8,377 in credit card debt according to 2016 statistics.
Before credit cards, if you couldn’t afford something, you simply didn’t get it. But, banks and credit card companies wanted to create a system for people to buy the things they need between paychecks. After a while, those needs became wants, and the downward spiral of thousands and thousands borrowed continues today.
