Posted on Fri, Feb 02, 2018 @ 05:09 PM

The other weekend I had the opportunity to get out of the city for a day and hit the slopes of one of Korea's many mountains.  Whether you are an avid skier or snowboarder, or just looking to try a new activity, I highly recommend trying this winter sport during your time teaching in Korea.  Going for a day, or even a full weekend, to one of Korea's ski resorts is a great way to stay active, enjoy the outdoors, and be able to experience some of the best views Korea has to offer.  In this blog I will not only write about my personal experience, but I will also give you insights into how to plan a trip, along with providing some information about a three of the mountains you can visit.

Posted on Tue, Apr 25, 2017 @ 12:00 PM

Spring is a popular season in Korea. Plenty of tourists travel to North East Asia to view the Cherry Blossoms, which bloom in Korea and Japan during the month of April. The season begins in March and ends around May,  as the temperatures warm up for Summer in June. Spring is also a season for harvesting. It is common to see countryside farmers planting rice and potatoes, as well as sowing seeds and pruning trees.  In this blog I will offer a variety of ways you and your friends can enjoy the comfortable spring weather while living and teaching in Korea.

The amount of mountain trails are endless and the opportunity to run in a forest and climb to the top of a summit is conveniently placed at every close subway exit or bus stop. Korea is all about being practical and suiting the needs of it's cities' inhabitants. And it is because of this that athletes and sports lovers alike would love living in Korea.
