This week marks the completion of my 7th year in Korea. Back in 2008, when I first set foot here, I barely knew anything about it. My decision to come here was partly driven by the desire to explore a place I knew so little about.Over the years, the list of "places to visit" have shrunk and the list of "been to" places have swelled - so much so that sometimes when my Korean co-workers ask me where I've been on the weekend, I surprise them with a name they've never heard! During my university days, I was an active blogger for Korean Tourism. Partly in search of interesting stories, partly to learn the language and partly to get away from the hordes that descend upon popular tourist spots on the weekend, I sought out the path less traveled. These ventures have been rich harvesting ground for interesting experiences. Sharing 4 such stories from 4 corners of Korea.
