It has been one year since I left the United States.


I have mentioned a few times that I have a list of places that Jared and I want to visit during our stay in Korea. A few of you may have assumed that I meant I have a mental list, or a general idea of what I want to do.


This weekend Jared and I ventured into Bukhansan National Park to stretch our legs and soak in some nature. The park consists of three mountain peaks within just 30 square miles of protected land. Designated as a park in 1983, Bukhansan is very unique because it is in northern Seoul, a city of 10 million people. Since it is part of the city, we did something I have never experienced before: we took the subway to reach a national park!


Hi! Welcome to my first blog,! I started this site to chronicle my newest adventure– moving to and living in South Korea. My original goal with this blog was to have another outlet for keeping in touch and with friends and family. (Hi Mom!) However, I want to go further than just document our everyday lives in a new country. I plan to examine all aspects of Korean culture and, hopefully, help others who are planning to move to or travel in Korea.
