@carlosdang Hm, then that's something that I would definitely like to be a part of. Although, at this point, it would be later rather than sooner. I am open to this, for sure.
@YinofYang @Tapsamai again, I'm very serious about setting up a Vingle Squad to travel and take pictures around the world.
It would be in my list to explore when i have enough money :)
This is a breathtaking photo. Wonderful!

Flying to Seoul for the First Time: Tips and Tricks!
I'm the kind of traveler that likes to know exactly what to expect when I get to a new country. I memorize airport maps, bus stops, and subway lines so that in case I can't find wifi or if I'm running low on time, I can find my way on my own. This is especially true in countries where English is not the native language. When I first came to Korea, I was obviously a little nervous. I was going there to study abroad so there were people meeting me to take me to my university, but I still had to get off the plane, through immigration, and somehow find this one cafe that was our meeting point all by myself. I've been traveling since I was literally 4 months old so I wasn't too scared, but I wish I had had a little more info on what Incheon was actually like. So, for those of you who are planning to visit Korea for the first time soon, I shared what it is like to fly into Incheon and get all the way to Seoul. This includes some things to expect with the landing (aka why Korea is called 'Land of the Morning Calm') and how to go fill out immigration forms. I hope this is helpful! Enjoy^^~ Other facts: - Incheon airport is about 2 hours outside of Seoul! - There are actually 2 international airports in Seoul, Gimpo and Incheon. Most likely, you'll be flying into Incheon which is the largest, but if you're flying in from Japan you might be taken to Gimpo which is slightly closer to Seoul! - Incheon airport has SO MUCH TO DO including a rollerskating rink, traditional music concerts, a movie theatre, a capsule hotel, a museum, and places where you can wear hanbok and make Korean crafts! If you have any more questions, feel free to leave them belowwww~
China Bans Funeral Strippers
The Chinese government is in the news this week as the country's ministry of culture announces that they will "crack down on 'stripping' and other acts of illegal business performance market". The statement was released after controversial videos were circulated featuring paid strippers disrobing in front of parents and children at a Handan funeral - resulting in arrests and a $11,300 fine. (I know. This is a lot to process.) Apparently, funeral strippers have turned into quite a trend in both China and Taiwan, as the region's bereaved have been shelling out some serious cash to pay for strip shows that can go as long as two-and-a-half hours. According to Everett Zhang, assistant professor of East Asian Studies at Princeton University, funerals in the area are treated like one lavish party, celebrating with as many people as possible to ensure that their loved one is sent off properly to the afterlife. "In China, when the person who dies is very old and has lived a long life, this kind of occasion becomes purely a celebration." But why strippers?! According to China's official Xinhua news agency, strippers are hired "to attract more mourners," adding that these racy performances "add to the fun". Blame it on cultural difference, but I can see why something like this would deserve to be shut down. However, while Zhang sees where this situation could be problematic, he's particularly surprised at the bold measures the government is taking to put an end to it. "Local people would not be happy about the arrests. That would be really intrusive and offensive." So what do you think? Should the Chinese government be allowed to arrest and fine the bereaved hiring funeral strippers, or should it be left to the family's discretion? Let me know in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection.

It’s best to clear all your questions and eliminate all doubt before you go ahead with the swapping deal. Inquire about the amenities in the house, such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the configurations of beds, Internet connectivity, LED Screen, patio garden, or pool. If you’re traveling with kids, make sure you talk about the things to do and see in the proximity that is kid-friendly.  When asking queries have realistic expectations. Don’t expect their house to be as perfect as your home, and you may not have all the facilities. Don’t feel timid about asking any type of questions, like how are the neighbors, where are the most convenient dry cleaner, etc. What’s important is to be open and transparent with our swapper. Exchange Options In the end, if you don’t want to arrange a direct exchange meaning you live in someone else’s residency, while they live in yours. You can opt for an indirect exchange, whereby you use their property even if they don’t use your property. Agree on the Exchange Dates During the initial discussions with your home partner, it’s critical to agree on the travel dates. You don’t want to find yourself in a situation when you’ve arrived at their place after a 7-hour flight, only to find that someone else is still at the property. Also, be as flexible as possible with your dates. If you are getting a great exchange at a location you always wanted to visit, flexibility always helps. Converse on the Platform It is of paramount importance to ensure that all the discussion and decisions must be kept on the home exchange platform itself. This way, you can stay clear of all potential hiccups or confusion along the way and can be managed by the customer services team of the exchange site. A reliable exchange verifies the property of swapper and their details to ensure a smooth, hassle-free experience. Layout the Swapping Deal Details Be clear and concise with your home exchange partner with regards to exactly what is included in the exchange. This might include such mundane actions as to what to do with the dirty towels & linen once you leave their place after a vacation; this is to avoid last-minute swapping mishaps. Wrapping up Finally do sufficient research to zero in on a trustworthy home exchange company to achieve complete peace of mind that everything is taken care of.
