Now that the autumn season is quickly passing us by, I thought it was best to share my last experience hiking in South Korea for this year. Usually when I go hiking, I like to stay near the Seoul area but this time a couple of teachers and I decided to go hiking near Daejeon. Daejeon is the fifth largest city in South Korea and is known as the ‘Silicon Valley’ of South Korea. Here, you can find KAIST (Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) University where many of my students aspire to attend. On a side note, KAIST is one of the top universities on the Korean peninsula.

I am going to miss so many things about living and working in Korea as an English teacher. The list goes on and on and there is no possible way for me to name everything that I have come to love during my time in Korea. I do know, however, that my favorite Korean food is going to be high up on that list. I have come to love and crave bibimbap, a mixed rice and vegetable dish, that is an extremely popular dish in Korea. I know I can probably find bibimbap in the United States (my friends tell me that Trader Joe's sells bibimbap now!), but I have a feeling it won't be as good as what I have come to love in Korea.
