World's Largest Indoor Theme Park in South Korea

Posted on Sat, Apr 05, 2014 @ 07:07 AM

Despite being smaller than the state of Michigan, South Korea manages to pack a whole heck of a lot into an area that generates the world’s 15th highest gross domestic product (About $1 trillion.) How? Nobody can be sure, but whether it’s the Miracle on the Han River or the people’s sheer determination to be better, South Korea is a place of superlatives. One of those superlatives is Lotte World, the world’s largest indoor theme park.

An English Teacher's Weekend Getaway to Manila

Posted on Wed, May 22, 2013 @ 04:00 AM

One of the best thing about living in Seoul is being able to travel to the surrounding Asian countries, even if it's just for a weekend. This past weekend was a quick trip to Manila, Philippines to explore the food, culture and of course lifestyle. Of course, there was barely any sleep involved, maybe two hours in total for the whole weekend. At the very minimum, sleeping on the plane before working a full day.

5 Things to Do with Visitors in Seoul, Korea

Posted on Tue, Apr 30, 2013 @ 04:22 PM

I arrived in Korea last July as a wide eyed and somewhat bewildered Westerner who truly had no idea what she was getting herself into. I’m not sure how it’s happened, but in the last nine months I’ve gone from a frightened tourist to a resident of Korea, and now I find myself calling this place my home.

Korean Underground Shopping Malls - An English Teacher's Dream!

Posted on Tue, Apr 23, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

Living in Incheon, South Korea has a lot of perks; I’m fairly close to the airport, near the coast, I can go and enjoy and enjoy the beautiful Songdo whenever I want, etc. But shortly after I arrived, I found out that one of the greatest things about living in Incheon was my proximity to Bupyeong Station (Incheon Line 1). Bupyeong station houses one of the most amazing underground shopping malls, where you can find pretty much everything and anything you could want. It’s cheap, convenient, and home to some of my greatest purchases while teaching English in Korea thus far. Here are my top reasons for being in love with Bupyeong:

An English Teacher in Korea Visits the DMZ

Posted on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 @ 11:03 AM

One of the must-visit places for English teachers in Korea is the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone).. It is an experience that introduces you to the only country that is still divided in the world today. The best part about this tour is the opportunity to visit one of the four discovered underground tunnels that were dug by North Korea to target Seoul in a secret attack. Of course the thought of a war still freaks most of us out, but we are pretty persuaded that there will not be a war (an extremely slight chance).
