Korea never really quite made it into my “List of countries to visit”, but by request from my cousin, we made this our destination for our 2016 girls trip!

A trip to one of the best wine regions in the world would not be complete, without a proper Chianti wine tour! Prior to the trip, I have received a few quotes from local tour companies on a half day wine tasting tour in the Chianti region and finally, I opted to go with one of the tours offered in Viator.

The meet up point was near the Santa Maria Novella church, and since we were early, we decided to do a little bit of sight seeing, and on the way, found a restaurant that serves Chinese food! After being in Italy for 2 weeks, our Asian taste… View Post
