To explore Asia from Aujin’s perspective, follow @aujinrew on Instagram.
It’s been almost 10 years since Aujin Rew (@aujinrew) overhauled her whole life, leaving behind a stable engineering career in South Korea to pursue photography. Last year, she accomplished another dream by traveling all over Asia, starting in Vietnam and ending in Turkey. “Mostly I traveled by bus or train, but sometimes hitchhiking took me on a more adventurous experience,” she says. “I hitchhiked a vegetable sellers’ car from Sary-Tash, Kyrgyzstan, and helped them sell vegetables on the way to Osh. A three-hour journey became six hours.” Aujin’s current home base is in Singapore, but before heading back on the road, she’s pausing in Seoul to reflect for the #LunarNewYear: “What has been driving me to keep traveling and stay away from home? Maybe even before I find some answers, my itchy feet will lead me to somewhere in Siberia or the border between Myanmar and India. Who knows? Life brings surprises.”
