Living and teaching in Korea is filled with unique experiences. Often opportunities arise that should not be missed! Life in Korea can be filled with adventure if you embrace new challenges and venture outside of your comfort zone. 

So what does it take to truly embrace Korea? The only way to see the country and understand the people, is to travel into the countryside or to local areas.

Most people who live in the bigger cities grew up in the countryside. If you want to understand your Korean friends, it is important t understand their upbringing and where they come from.

I wondered to myself, “How could this be? Korea doesn’t even have a lot of golf courses!” There are golf courses, but the majority of them are an hour or two drive out of Seoul (Korean real estate prices are ridiculously high, so it makes sense that it is not in the city.) If you can’t get away, here are some ways to get your golfing fix:

Posted on Tue, Apr 22, 2014 @ 10:17 PM
