The Republic of Korea, or South Korea, is a nation rich with history, beautiful natural scenery, and dazzling modernity. Beautiful traditional architecture is juxtaposed with neon signs and quirky modern buildings. Visiting Seoul, its capital city, visitors will be impressed with the cleanliness and efficiency with which everything runs, not to mention the shopping culture! Get outside of Seoul and soak up the lovely landscapes of the countryside or go hiking in the mountains.

Sometimes the best experiences happen by accident. This is how I feel about our hike to Jaunbong Peak in Bukhansan National Park. Although a steep and difficult climb, the spectacular views at the top make it one of the best hikes I’ve done!

Whether it’s murals, statues, or quirky buildings, I appreciate seeing artistic touches sprinkled throughout a city. I spent several days wandering Seoul’s streets and compiled numerous photos of random artwork and architecture.

Eating in Seoul means not only consuming delicious food, but also going on a culinary adventure which thrills your other senses. Many dishes are prepared and cooked right in front of you. As you watch the food cook, you’ll feel the heat, hear the sizzle, and smell the spicy aromas as your mouth begins to water.
