How to Celebrate Independence and Canada Day While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Thu, Jul 14, 2016 @ 04:12 PM

One of my favorite holidays back in America was the 4th of July. Thanks to Facebook’s memory reminders, I realized how much I was able to travel during those long holiday weekends. Although I wasn’t able to travel far from Seoul, I was able to do some fun activities to celebrate this holiday.

Foodie Paradise at Food Week Korea in Seoul

Posted on Mon, Nov 24, 2014 @ 09:30 AM

A few weeks ago, I happened upon information about Food Week Korea, an annual event held in Seoul, featuring food from all over the world. In case that doesn't already sound awesome, the part of this that really caught my attention was the promise of free samples. Eager to basically eat my way around the world, I wasted no time in getting signed up so I could attend the event.

Getting your Foreign Food Fix in Daejeon: Chinese and Mexican Edition

But for those of you who still have rumbling stomachs, then I am back to reveal a few more of Daejeon’s foreign food gems.

Getting your Foreign Food Fix in Daejeon: Pizza and Burger Edition

Posted on Thu, Jul 03, 2014 @ 10:01 AM

Napoleon once wrote that an army marches on its stomach. I couldn’t agree more with this statement, as I too wholeheartedly believe in the power of food. I am a proud glutton who is not ashamed to lick his plate or stare hungrily at my friend’s unfinished meal after I have devoured mine. Simply put, I love to eat. Of course I could write about the typical Korean culinary delights (my keyboard is soaked now as I salivate just imagining a plate of extra spicy dalkgalbi), but today is all about the non-Korean options. Daejeon obviously does not have the vast selection of Seoul, but I have still managed to uncover a number of solid options.

Seafood Feast Korea Style: Exploring Nampo, Busan

Posted on Mon, Sep 16, 2013 @ 03:05 PM

While living and teaching in Busan, South Korea, I've heard a fair amount about Nampo and the Jagalchi Seafood Market. Jagalchi is one of the most famous seafood markets in Korea. It is huge, and has both an inside, multi-leveled area and an outside open market. There are restaurants to be found everywhere there, but just next door is another area famous for food and a bit less expensive, Nampo.

How To: Find a Great American Breakfast in Korea!

Posted on Wed, Aug 07, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

Despite the fact that teaching in South Korea offers invaluable experiences, teaching abroad also means leaving a lot behind. And you often don’t know what you’ll really miss until you actually find yourself craving it. Just the other day, on a bus bound for Seoul, I found myself nostalgic for the 91 freeway that runs through my childhood neighborhood. I hated that thing for being jam-packed and noisy, but it was home. I had a similar experience today. I wasn’t surprised by this one, however. BREAKFAST! American breakfast. And a darn good one, too.
