Posted on Sun, Oct 15, 2017 @ 12:00 PM

One of my favorite things to do during September-October is to visit Everland Amusement Park in Yongin (a suburb of Seoul). It is the largest amusement park in Korea and there are multiple ways to get there via Express Bus and subway lines. A few friends from my ChungDahm branch decided to take a day trip to Everland to experience what many Koreans claim is the best park in Korea. Below are my my top five reasons you should go to Everland, especially during the Fall season.

Visit Museums Of Optical Illusions While Teaching In Korea!

Posted on Mon, Oct 27, 2014 @ 10:51 AM

I enjoy quirky, and I enjoy silly. Living in Korea, I've had countless opportunities to embrace both of these, but I've found the grandest display of ridiculous to definitely be in the form of the "trick" art museums. I've visited two different ones, and I must say -- if you enjoy acting like a kid and posing for outrageous photos, then this is a place for you.

Not Only Korean Food: Brunch in Seoul

Posted on Fri, Apr 11, 2014 @ 10:37 AM

One of my favorite things to do in Seoul is to scope out a new spot for brunch. Living in Korea has a tendency to really make me crave an American breakfast, and it is a little hard to find in Busan unless you plan on cooking a brunch feast yourself. Many of the restaurants in Seoul offer a brunch menu, and after a weekend vacation, brunch really hits the spot.

Sun, Sand, and the Sea: Teaching in Busan

Posted on Mon, Jul 22, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

Welcome to the summer capital of South Korea! I really won the jackpot when I was offered a place in Busan to teach. It is gorgeous here, and with my weekends and most of the day free, I have plenty of time to explore. Since summer is just around the corner (right after the rainy season), the weather will soon be prime for beach time.

Arrrreg You Ready to Be A Pirate? Pirate Party Cruise in Busan, Korea

Posted on Mon, Jun 17, 2013 @ 04:54 PM

If you had asked me when I first came to Korea, about my ideal night on the town, chances are I would not have mentioned dressing up as a pirate. A couple halloweens ago, I decided to dress up like a pirate, eye patch included. I had a rip roaring good time and longed to don my pirate garb once more. But I couldn't repeat costumes every halloween! So, when I heard about a pirate ship party in Busan, I was pleasantly surprised and more than ready to jump aboard.

It's My Party: How to Hike in Korea

Posted on Wed, Dec 05, 2012 @ 01:37 PM

With about 70% of the Korean peninsula covered with mountains, the hiking culture dominates the the Land of Kimchi. In my spare time from teaching English, I went for a short hike up Mt. Dobongsan near my home a few weeks ago. I have a ways to go if I want to start calling myself a "hiker", but here are my thoughts thus far...
