Get out of the City and visit the Hemp Farm In Boseong

Posted on Sun, Aug 20, 2017 @ 12:00 PM

The last blog I wrote was about my escapades throughout Boseong, and particularly the green tea fields.

My friends and I were able to visit a hemp farm that specifically produces hemp textiles, another specialty of Boseong. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if it’s open to the public without appointment and I had the special opportunity to go as a group.  In this blog I will talk about the highlights of our day at the hemp farm and tell you why you should visit it during your time teaching in Korea.

Korea has been top of the ESL charts for the past 10 years when it comes to salaries and benefits. Even teachers starting-out get paid reasonably and there is the opportunity to rack-up a good amount of money after one year.

Enjoy a Summer Weekend of Games and BBQ in Korea's Countryside

Posted on Mon, Jun 15, 2015 @ 05:27 PM

The weather in Korea is heating up which means summer has arrived! To celebrate the beginning of summer, one of my friends invited us to go to the popular Daemyung Resort in Yangpyeong. About an hour and a half away from Seoul, Daemyung Resort is located in Korea's countryside of Gyeonggi-do.  Being able to make short distance weekend getaways is one of the great perks of teaching English in Korea
