As yet another year comes to a close, everyone seems to be focused on a) reflecting on the events of the past twelve months and b) carefully making to-do lists for the next year. When I look back on my most recent year in Korea, I feel quite accomplished. I managed to do a lot of sightseeing and exploring all around the country. As a result I decided to share with you some of my favorite Korean adventures of 2014. Here's part one of my 2014 recap of my favorite spots in Korea!

During my time in Korea, I've been lucky enough to have a fair number of visitors. My best friend is currently visiting from back home in the U.S., and as I've been pulling her around Seoul to the spots I deem the most interesting and picturesque, I realized that I've got this tour guide thing down to a science. So whether you're new to Korea yourself or you're expecting visitors during your time here, let this be a guide for the spots you should definitely see.

Given the amount of time I've been in Korea, I feel like I've managed to see a lot of the touristy spots and yet, I'm always looking for something new. As of late, I've also been looking for spots that are off the beaten path, which I usually find through reading blogs from other expats. This past weekend I was able to cross one of these slightly-less-well-known spots off of my Korea Bucket List by visiting the Ihwa Mural Village.
