When I decided to travel to South Korea to teach English, I had no idea what it would be like. I knew it would be an experience. Well, 17 months later, I can certainly say it is that. It turns out that moving to South Korea to travel and teach English has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. South Korea is filled with many interesting sights; from temples or shrines, to traditional Hanok villages (traditional Korean buildings). South Korea has so much to offer, which makes a weekend traveling around Korea anything but boring. A few weeks ago, before the weather started to cool down, I and some other English Teachers from my school decided to visit Jeonju, home of the famous Bibimbap, the famous choco pie, and one of Korea’s largest Hanok villages.

Just a short jaunt from my favorite area of Seoul, Insadong, is a neighborhood that's vying for the number two spot. Nestled between two palaces and overlooking hip Samcheongdong is the Bukchon Hanok Village -- narrow winding streets flanked with gorgeous hanok houses. I've taken a stroll through this neighborhood several times now and it just never gets old. Not only is this area ridiculously photogenic, but it also offers a variety of cultural activities and history lessons!
