Discover a New Culture in Your Own Backyard

I’m obsessed with travel and exploring new cultures, which is obviously much more difficult post-kids. My favorite things to do when I travel internationally are to check out grocery stores and local spas. I get so much insight into their culture by digging into daily life. 

This week I went on a mini-vacation. I drove the Korean suburb of DC, spent a few hours in the Korean spa, and had a long, leisurely visit to H-Mart (a Korean grocery). I came home with tons of fun foods and activities for the kids to try: Shabu Shabu, crazy Japanese candy making kids, and preserved duck eggs.

I felt recharged. What are your favorite parts of travel? Could you recreate those pieces in your local life?

Go on a mini-adventure.
