Try These Top Summer Dishes and Drinks While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Fri, Jun 03, 2016 @ 02:47 PM

If you haven’t been to Korea, Korea is a great place to live because you can truly experience 4 seasons. When I was in living in Las Vegas, all I knew was hot and cold. One thing that I like about living in Korea, is that Korean people eat specific foods according to season. Since summer season in Korea is quickly approaching, I thought it would be best for me to share the top 4 foods you should try while living and teaching in Korea during the summertime.

10 Tips for Going Gluten-Free in Korea

Posted on Tue, Mar 26, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

I know some of you may not trust me as a gluten-free foodie resource in Korea. I mean, come on, I recently wrote a love letter (in the form of a blog post) to the best sandwicherie in Seoul. I've been known to indulge from time to time. Although, I swear I didn't eat the suspicious PB&J sandwich pictured below. It was 'gifted' to me at Korea Burn this past summer and although my friend and I accepted the sustenance with gratitude, the fact that a kind soul pulled it out of his suitcase prompted us to 're-gift' it to the carefree, rainbow-bearded man we met a few seconds later.

My Favorite Bar Game in Korea

Posted on Thu, Apr 12, 2012 @ 11:07 AM

            While teaching English in Korea and hanging out at bars, I noticed that Darts is a popular bar game. Nearly every bar in Korea has an electronic dart machine. I was never an avid dart player, but I was forced to learn since almost all my friends did. After learning though, I must admit that it is fun. Now, it’s all I play when I’m at a bar. The fact that it’s electronic makes it even more exciting. No need to worry about keeping score while you’re intoxicated or arguing with your competitor about the correct score. Also, the awesome sound effect when you hit bull’s eye, triple, or double, livens up the celebration.  It’s also the perfect game to socialize with new friends or that special interest you meet at the bar. So, just in case you’re a newbie at darts just like I was, below is an explanation of how to play my favorite dart board game.
