I came to Korea in 2006 and worked for the British Council. Now in between freelance teaching I continue my quest to learn about Korea, find good food (spicy+seafood=heaven) and visit interesting places – preferably where I can be alone…(well, OK, Mr Kim can come sometimes too).

very happy

When planning a trip in Korea, I consider two things – what can we eat when we get there? And what are we going to do apart from eat?

My favourite place outside Seoul to visit is Jeonju in Jeolla province. Its relaxing to be there, the food is GREAT – (it’s famous for bibimbap), and there are mountains nearby for hiking off all the calories. On my blog there are several posts on Jeonju and lots on our other weekend trips around Korea too. Now we have bikes so we have to see where we can travel with bicycles.
