I began teaching in Korea in the winter time, which has its charm for sure. It’s nice to cozy up in layers and hike through primarily brushy trails and leaf litter or just have hot drinks with friends. But I’m definitely partial to hot weather. One of the most glorious signs of warm days ahead is the mass bloom of cherry blossom trees around South Korea.  In this blog I will talk about the ways I have been able to enjoy this first sign of Spring over the last couple of weekends.

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.

3 Outdoor Activities To Do in Korea When Spring Has Sprung

Posted on Fri, May 01, 2015 @ 05:34 PM

When I decided to teach in Korea, I knew that I would probably do some hiking – as Korea has many mountains.
