REMEMBERING AN AWESOME TRAVELING TIME!
I love to travel a lot and I am a well versed traveler but this is my first time in South Korea for business and fun. And since the Winter Olympics are happening in this country our family decided for us to stay three days at the Conrad Hotel in Seoul and then go to Pyongyang for the finals. So, so long Seoul, hello Pyeongchang!
It was very hard to track down accommodations close to these mountain events but we did it with anticipation though, we learned our lesson in Sochi 2014 where we stayed on a cruise ship near the coastal cluster and had to commute every day to watch my events. The way the security was set up most of the mountain based accommodations would have been difficult to get to without a car. We planned better this time.
SE SOUVENIR DE LA CORÉE DU SUD
Busan en Corée du Sud est la seconde plus grande ville du pays. Très souvent, visiter Busan est une étape incontournable lors d’un voyage en Corée du Sud.
Ville portuaire située au sud de la péninsule coréenne, la ville est assez étendue et dispose de plusieurs points d’intérêt touristiques au sein même de la ville ou en bordure. En effet, pour visiter Busan correctement, il faut compter au moins 2 jours.
Dans ce billet consacré à Busan en Corée du Sud, je vous donne mes conseils pour préparer votre visite de la ville et savoir quoi faire à Busan.

CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN 😉
Enjoying a Barbra Streisand concert on cable, delightful voice and musical interpretation. She sang a song from the “Sound Of Music”, beautifully, magnificent. But I have a problem with a part of the lyrics of this song.
I will tell you first a little bit of my musical experience so you know why I dare to criticize (in a constructive way, of course) the lyrics of this song.
I happen to be a musician. I play the guitar and sing very well, actually. I sang professionally in my youth to pay for my medical career. I studied music, singing lessons and musical composicion: music and lyrics, in Bellas Artes in Mexico City. So I think I have a very good idea of what I am talking about, but I am always open for a healthy debate and to change my mind if somebody is willing to explain to me why I am wrong in my assertion about this song:
“Climb Every Mountain” — Written by Rodgers And Hammerstein.
This show tune was written for the 1959 musical “The Sound of Music” and sung by the Mother Abbess.
The problem I have with, is highlighted and I will tell you why below the lyrics:
Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
‘Till you find your dream
It should say “reach” your dream, not find your dream. You already need to have found your dream, this is “know” your dream, then climb every mountain, until you reach it. And I don’t see any problem with the rhyme. Changing the word find to reach would not affect the tune nor the octaves, but it would make a lot more sense, and it would have more psychological and inspirational impact, in my opinion.

Breakfast in Messy Bed!
Perfectionists have a lot of baggage that other people don’t, and that baggage comes from constantly striving to appear perfect.” Basically, it’s not easy being perfect; it’s heavy and exhausting.
When we live a rigid life in order to attain out-of-reach goals, we miss out on the organic rhythms that our mind and bodies might be moving to in a life less focused on perfection. Striving to be great … or good or even just okay.
Messy but lots of Fun!
Rather than perfect allows one to find their groove and excel, even if that means excelling with a messy sink or undone hair. And when you get to that point, and can find the liberating joy of imperfection? I would say that’s pretty perfect.
Messy Beautiful Hair!
Furnham says that people focused on perfection tend to have low self-esteem, noting also the presence of “guilt and its fellow travelers, shame and self-recrimination.” Admittedly it’s not clear if low self esteem feeds perfectionism or if perfectionism feeds low self esteem, but when I think of the more confident people I know, they are the ones unashamed of imperfection.
I for one stopped being so rigid in my cycling schedule. I now dress the way I feel like, colorful if I want to, no planned routes. Yes, I am a Messy Cyclist, and I LOVE IT!
Messy Happy Cyclists!
Have in mind that the kind of breakfast you should eat depends on the activity you are going to do that day. If you are going to exercise or not, the intensity of your physical activity, etc.
It is important to eat breakfast, but when you get up early in the morning to go out for a bike ride you don’t want to stuff yourself or you will feel bloated while riding your bike, and that is a very uncomfortable feeling.
If you have to hurry every morning before you go out to work you don’t want to spend hours cooking and eating breakfast. You don’t want eat a lot either, just the proper amount of food with the best quality of ingredients to keep you strong and sharp the first hours of your day.
So here there are some examples:
BAKED EGG IN AVOCADO
1 avocado, pitted
salt & pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425F. Crack the first egg in a bowl, then pour gently into the hole of one of the avocado halves. Do the same for the 2nd egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on how cooked you like your eggs.

BREAKFAST FOR A CYCLIST COMMUTER
Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.
The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.

MASSAGE RELAXATION SPA DAY
Dads don’t need much. Just a little gift to know that their work is appreciated. BUT if you really wanted to, he probably wouldn’t mind if you took the time to look around to get him something more suitable to his likings:
- Is he a geeky dad?
- Is he the executive type?
- Does he love sports, and what kind?
- Is he metro-sexual and super-neat?
- Does he like traveling?
- Does he like music, plays a certain musical instrument?
- Maybe your dad is the scientific one?
ALL IN ONE CHARGING STATION
Think of all the things Dad did for you: Life lessons, guidance, and unconditional love. Maybe your dad would love an expensive drone that will show up all the other dads at the park. Or a super-slick TV that doesn’t look like all the others.
A great idea would be to give him a gift card for him to spend in a relaxing environment like a spa, so he can get a massage with herbs and lotions, facial masks, a haircut, sauna, and then go with him and the whole family to a fancy restaurant for dinner.
Send your dad to the country or place he has always dreamed of visiting and he has never been able to go for one reason or another. You can find out when he has time off and which are his plans. I assure you, he will be very happy.
