Boseong Green Tea Fields | Explore Korea

Before I left Korea I really wanted to visit the Green Tea Fields, because, as an avid tea drinker, they were definitely on my list of things to see.

Farewell Korea | Explore Korea

Farewell Korea | Explore Korea

Two years. They have been completely filled with memories that I cherish and experiences I have learned from. I remember when I got the idea into my head to take off for a year and teach english in Korea. I constantly saw advertisements about it and read blog posts of other people doing it.

A friend of mine has recently gone on a trip to India to study yoga and it inspired me to pick up a book to read a little more about this country.
