Singer-songwriter Maricelle is currently on a tour of North Asia and she kindly agreed to keep us posted on her adventures with the Atlas Tour Diary. Here’s the latest update.
Annyeong from Jeju island! EVERYTHING HERE IS SO PRETTY! The daylight has such a nice calming glow and the island has this nice serenity about it, and lots of nature.
Korean food hits the spot too, with the great weather and cool breezes. It’s been challenging so far, being away from home so long, it feels like an extraction from the daily life I’m used to. A little bit of FOMO I guess haha!
But then I remember why I’m overseas in the first place and I get back to the grind of practicing and playing. Being busy occupies my mind from wandering, which it seems to do a lot. Travelling with company makes it better though, luckily I’m not alone.
The fellow musicians I’ve met on this trip have made it an interesting collage of stories and lives, entwined by a fervour of passion and common ground. Jeju’s been fun, and gigging is always a blast.
Btw I’ve got a collaborative project coming out mid July, I’ll update you on the deets on that soon.
