Posted on Mon, Jun 02, 2014 @ 05:53 PM

For an amazing day trip away from the hustle and bustle of Seoul, head down south to an area called Gwacheon. It is easily accessible from Line 4 (Baby Blue subway line).

How to Incorporate Fun Into Your Classroom

Posted on Tue, Aug 13, 2013 @ 11:14 AM

Being an English teacher for Chungdahm does not mean that you are restricted to a itinerary everyday like most people think. There is flexibility within your classroom by being able to incorporate other fun things into the everyday schedule. One special class that I had with my amazing Memory Tera students who are extremely young in age is allowing the to participate in a bucket list check off for me.

Arrrreg You Ready to Be A Pirate? Pirate Party Cruise in Busan, Korea

Posted on Mon, Jun 17, 2013 @ 04:54 PM

If you had asked me when I first came to Korea, about my ideal night on the town, chances are I would not have mentioned dressing up as a pirate. A couple halloweens ago, I decided to dress up like a pirate, eye patch included. I had a rip roaring good time and longed to don my pirate garb once more. But I couldn't repeat costumes every halloween! So, when I heard about a pirate ship party in Busan, I was pleasantly surprised and more than ready to jump aboard.

A How To: Get Your Music On This Summer In Korea.

Posted on Mon, Apr 22, 2013 @ 04:47 PM

I'm all about the music. I am up for any concert, just ask. With only a month and a bit before I leave (tear tear), lately I've been reminicing about all I've managed to experience while teaching and livng in Korea (Are you ready?). I am amazed at how much I have done in such a short amount of time, especially when I think about all the concerts I've attended. It seems like ages ago, but at this time last year I was preparing to witness Lady Gaga's first and very controvercial world tour stop in Seoul. A short while later I joined happy-go-lucky young Koreans lounging on Nami Island for the annual Rainbow Island Festival with Jason Mraz as the headliner.

It's My Party: How to Hike in Korea

Posted on Wed, Dec 05, 2012 @ 01:37 PM

With about 70% of the Korean peninsula covered with mountains, the hiking culture dominates the the Land of Kimchi. In my spare time from teaching English, I went for a short hike up Mt. Dobongsan near my home a few weeks ago. I have a ways to go if I want to start calling myself a "hiker", but here are my thoughts thus far...
