Where to go in Korea  - 
 
Here's a nice little selection of the 40 most beautiful places in Korea. How many have you been to?
In South Korea there are places where travel photographers fall in love, and go back to again and again.

At a temple just north of Seoul, I found a small grotto where people had put hundreds of little Buddha statues.

Yes, that's the one. It was quite good. That is Nagasaki-style noodles, which I love.

So sad. I see elderly people collecting recycling all the time. The Korean government should really do something about this. It's a disgrace and certainly not in line with the other developments this country has seen over the last 50 years.
NPR Social Tools
In a country known for its tech advances and rapid economic rise, the generation responsible for the growth isn't faring so well. Half of South Korea's seniors live below the poverty line.

The Imposter

If you enjoy watching documentaries, this is a great one. It's got amazing story with twists and turns like a thriller and some very interesting camera work and editing. Definitely worth your time if you're looking for something entertaining to watch.

Bukchon, Seoul, Korea
One of my favorite areas of Seoul, this neighborhood near Kyeongbok Palace preserves the traditional architecture of the Joseon Period.

Introduction
I am a writer and editor for the EFL industry in South Korea, and I have a passion for experimenting with new ways of using emerging media to learn and teach languages. 

My father used to work for IATA, so I had the chance to do a lot of traveling when I was young. I guess I got wanderlust early because I've always loved traveling. So, I guess it makes sense that I ended up teaching English; part of the attraction is that you get to live in different countries and really be immersed in the culture in a way that being a tourist doesn't allow.

I originally came over to Korea to teach English for a year, save some money, do some traveling, and then go back to do my M.A., but I in my first year in Korea, I met my wife and got married. Shortly after, we had our daughter, Jasmine. So, my plans changed. And somewhere along the way I really fell in love with Korea and with teaching English. Now, I can't really imagine living anywhere else. I love the people and the culture... and of course, the food.

I was an ESL teacher for six years before moving into textbook writing and editing. Now, my main area of interest is using the Internet as a medium for language education. There are so many great (and free!) tools available for teaching and communicating that it just makes sense to use these to teach ESL. So, I've been experimenting with using different tools: Google Wave, Skype, Facebook, blogging, etc.
