East, Meet West! Comparing Korea and Canada

This article was inspired by fellow World Korea Blogger Angeliki Katsika's wonderful article comparing Korea and Greece. Reading her work, I felt compelled to write my own version, making some comparisons between my home country, Canada, and my "home away from home", Korea. So here we go: East, meet West. Korea, meet Canada.


Welcoming Winter? Try an Icy Dip & Zip at Deokpo Beach!


On January 7th, I had the pleasure of participating in the 8th Annual Geoje Penguin Swim Festival. This festival was just so much fun, and definitely one of my favourite experiences in Korea thus far!

The IMF Comes to Yeongtong!

Roll up! Roll up! The IMF is coming to Yeongtong-dong in Suwon!

Don’t all run for your bank books just yet – it’s the International Music Festival, not the International Monetary Fund :D

Myself and herself, or I should say herself, has taken over the running of Sansudawon, a traditional Korean tea café in Yeongtong in Suwon. We are currently in the process of changing a few things.

Life in Korea: Chuseok


Just some of the gift sets available for the masses.


Destination: A day in Andong (Andong City Tour)



A day in most smaller Korean cities can be spent exploring by yourself or joining a group city tour. With only a day in Andong, and a desire to see as much as possible, I opted for the city tour. The tour leaves at 10am from the Andong bus terminal, which is just a kilometer or so from the train station. Only one tour a day is offered, and will be one of two possible tours based on the day (explained later).
