Posted on Tue, Aug 07, 2012 @ 10:09 AM

With so many mountains in Seoul, it is my goal to hike every mountain while teaching English in Korea. I've already checked off 11 on my list, not even halfway there, but I wanted to share with the rest of the world my experience. Excuse my horrible navigation, I still haven't been able to map out Seoul in my head, but I present to you, a glimpse of Gwanak San!
