Jindo Sea Parting Festival | Explore Korea

Korea has festivals all year round for everything from snow crabs to fireflies, from tea to the sea. There is plenty to do and explore in this amazing country.

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. I looked online for a weekend trip through one of the many Korean tour companies. I asked some friends and they jumped on board to go wander through tea fields with me.

On Sunday, our flight was leaving in the evening, so we had the morning to see the last two things on our list. A Japanese shopping market where I bought several postcards, and of course we had to see the Fushimi Inari Shrine. The shrine has its own metro stop, so it is very easy to access.

One of my travel goals for this year was to go to Japan and experience a Cherry Blossom Festival. Checking the dates before hand and planning which city to see the beautiful sakura in, April seemed like the best month to go.

We stayed at an Airbnb that was really close to the metro and a fifteen minute walk from one…

24 Hours in Hiroshima | Explore Japan

Since I live in South Korea, Japan is an hour flight away and I decided that since this is my last year in Korea, I am going to take advantage of the close proximity and see some places in Japan that I am interested in. The first one being Hiroshima. I do not get a lot of vacation time, so I decided to take a short weekend trip there and see history before my very eyes. I enjoyed learning about…

Surfing in November, Ingu-ri | Explore Korea

One of my friends had explored a little surfing town, called Ingu-ri which is near YangYang on the East Coast of Korea, in October and was planning on going back because she said it was an amazing place to go. She described it as this chill haven on the East Coast of Korea, where everyone walked around in wetsuits and men had long hair. She said it had the sort of surfer vibe that one thinks of, when you think…

Hogsmeade Cafe in Daegu | Explore Korea

Have you read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? It was amazing, I cried when I read the first page. Just seeing the names Harry, Ron and Hermione written again in a book makes me tear up with joy and brings back the childhood adventures I went on with this unforgettable trio. I don’t know about you, but Autumn to me feels like the perfect time for a Harry Potter type adventure. I did some research and found that there…
