Using social media, I proudly post a picture which embodies hundreds of years of history through the use of a traditional wax seal. The patience required to melt the beads for each wax seal above a flame really does transport you back and remind you what a 'slower' time in history may have felt like.
This is a picture of me going to hand deliver this invitation. If you know me, you will understand instantly why I do this. I am all or nothing in almost every aspect of my life...and I love being this way.
Only in the advent of paper stationery did wax seals become integral to the signing of official documents and the sending and receiving of letters. Each seal would bear its owner's unique design, such as a coat of arms or an emblem, and would have carried the same authority as a written signature has today. Even relatively insignificant documents were stamped with a seal as a simple way of identifying the sender.
Towards the end of the medieval period, wax seals became more popular in private correpondence. Their practicality was even greater when information had to remain confidential: an unbroken wax seal enclosing a letter meant that it had been successfully delivered, whereas a broken one indicated the message had been tampered with along the way.

I love going to new cities and trying their takjus. Today is Gyeongju! It's my first time visiting the historical city.
1st try. Very light. A good amount of bitterness. Not very sweet, but has a hint of artificial taste. Honestly, not one of my favorites, but being in the city and the atmosphere is nice as it adds to the overall experience. #alcohol#makgeolli#takju#rice#ricewine#traditional#Gyeongju#여행
저는 새로운 도시에 가는 것과 그들의 타쿠스를 먹어보는 것을 좋아합니다. 오늘은 경주입니다! 역사도시를 처음 방문하는군요.
첫 번째 시도. 아주 가볍다. 상당한 고통. 별로 달지는 않지만, 약간은 인공적인 맛을 가지고 있습니다. 솔직히, 제가 좋아하는 건 아니지만, 도시와 분위기에 있는 건 전반적인 경험을 더해주는 것 같아 좋아요. #막걸리#술#쌀#경주#경주시#탁주#전통#맛있다#신경주

Always trying a different take on traditional dishes being veganified, with some coastal staples minus our fishy frands 🐠
‘Vegan Fish’ Panko Ceviche
Lemon and chilli marinated vegan fish breaded and fried in panko with sweet potato and corn
Croquetas de la reserva
‘White vegan meat’ croquettes made from lima beans and cassava in a creamy chilli, sweet potato and pepper sauce
So amazing that there are more options in the smallest towns, the demand for more plants is growing 🙏🏼
Banana Yucca (Yucca baccata) are beginning to bloom! "Most yuccas have dry hard fruits, but the fruits of banana yucca are fleshy and succulent. They look roughly like short fat green bananas, thus the name. These fruits were a traditional food of the Apache and Navajo."-@u.s.forestservice
