Giselle's Weekend Getaway at Jeju Island, Korea’s Hawaii

Posted on Mon, May 21, 2018 @ 12:00 PM

Jeju Island is located just south of the Korean peninsula in the Korea Strait. It is a famous vacation destination. Known as being Korea’s Hawaii, Jeju is a favorite for Koreans and others from neighboring nations. It is particularly popular during the spring and summer. I went during the fall to avoid the crowds and peak season prices. I hope to motivate all you lovely Aclipse/Chungdahm teachers to plan a trip to Jeju of your own.

Be Sure to Visit Jeju, the "Hawaii of Korea," While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Wed, Oct 26, 2016 @ 03:15 PM

One of the longest breaks you will have as a ChungDahm teacher is during the Korean holiday of Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving). The other major holiday would be Seollnal (Lunar New Years). Whenever these holidays approach, I always take the time to leave the city. In times past, I’ve visited Malaysia, Manila, and Busan. We have had teachers visit Hong Kong and Thailand during this long vacation too. This year, I decided to take time and go to a place that I had been to before but never got a really chance to explore. This place I decided to go back to was Jeju.

Loveland: A Park STRICTLY for Adults in Jeju, Korea....

Posted on Tue, May 21, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

It is my last week teaching English in Korea. After living in Jeju for over a year, I have done everything on the island that I have wanted to do; I have climbed Jeju's volcano, Mt. Hallasan, several times, visited all of the beaches, checked out Jeju's famous lava tubes, and so much more. Yet, there was still one more thing on my bucket list. I haved joked about doing it since I arrived in Korea, but have not seriously thought about going. But with my time in Korea dwinding down, I thought this might be my last opportunity to visit an erotic theme park.

Scuba Diving in South Korea

Posted on Sat, Mar 30, 2013 @ 04:40 PM

I never in my wildest dreams thought I would scuba dive during my year of teaching English in South Korea. First, I did not even know if people scuba dove or if there were great locations for diving. Korea is cold for so many months of the year and the ocean water is always freezing; two conditions that are not that conducive for diving. Second, and most importantly, I became certified when I was 17 years old and had not been diving once. Now, I am 26 and really can't remember much about about diving because it has been 9 years and have not thought much about going. But, only a few months after arriving in Korea, I was being invited to go diving.

Exploring Caves on Jeju When Teaching In Korea

Posted on Wed, Nov 07, 2012 @ 01:16 PM

Even though there are hundreds of things to do on Jeju, there is one thing that is a must for any visitor or English teacher in Korea. And no, I am not talking about the beaches or climbing Korea's tallest mountain, I am talking about exploring the caves that can be found throughout the island.
