About Ane

Ané moved from one South to another - Africa to Korea - because she believes the world has secrets for her to discover and thought she might as well start here. She fell in love with here though, and currently lives on a Korean island called Jindo where she reads, writes, runs, eats vegetables and teaches English.

Korea’s Hidden Gem: Bijindo Island

Off the coast of Tongyeong - which is two hours from Busan - lies an island shaped like an hourglass, a barbell, or a strapless brassiere - depending on how you choose to see things. It’s called Bijindo and it is stripped bare of most things you think you need, and it is all the more magical for it. The island is really two islands, strung together by Bijin beach - a long, sandy strip of sand and road that literally keeps it all together. If you are looking for sparkling attractions, Bijindo is not your island. Pretty unknown to [...]

24 Hours in Gyeongju

There is not a place I have been to that I can honestly claim triumphs over the charm that seeps through the streets of the city of Gyeongju. Situated in the North Gyeongsang Province and sandwiched in between Ulsan and Pohang, Gyeongju is a quick hour’s bus ride from Busan, and a two hour KTX ride from Seoul. Once the capital of the Silla Kingdom, the city is a beautifully decorated old treasure box, filled to the brim with delights ranging from mountain ranges to lunch next to a hundred-year old pond; from backpacker’s bunk beds to colossal burial mounds; [...]

Busan Museum of Art

The Busan Museum of Art holds an escape from all that might be daunting to those of us who were not born and bred in cities; those of us unused to seeing our entire homes from pretty much any vantage point within it; those of us who feel personally offended by fluorescent lighting and need several cups of tea to recover from an unfortunate stroll through a department store. The Busan Museum of Art has ceilings high as ten of you standing your own shoulders. It has nooks and it has crannies and it is so completely devoid of salespeople [...]

Busan Markets: Every Day is Market Day

One of my biggest initial disappointments in Korea was the eerie quietness of weekend mornings. Weekdays often lack charm regardless of where in the world you find yourself, but Saturdays and Sundays, I have long believed, demand a certain grace. A certain loveliness made manifest through larger-than-usual mugs of tea, and markets. Farmer’s markets. The kind where your vegetables are still covered by the dirt they were grown in, next to the grinning farmer (or helper) that assisted in the growing process. In the little Western Cape town where my (debatably) healthy infatuation with locally grown nourishment sprouted, these kinds [...]
