Jenn in Korea.

This is all about my EPIK teaching adventures in Korea!

Forgot our hiking gear…



Scott and I went for a walk and stumbled upon a small lake in the middle of the city. Around the perimeter there was a hiking trail and speakers with music. There were quite a few trails which spidered out in different directions. At the end of the trail there was even a spot to “air-off” your shoes. Initially we thought it was a bathroom…then a water station to wash your feet?…then realized it was actually air nozzles that you could clean your shoes with! Genius! I regretted not getting a picture.


Hiking is huge in Korea by the way. And so is the gear to go with it. You can’t go 5 minutes without finding 5 different sports and hiking gear stores. They’re everywhere! Koreans are serious about having the right gear for hiking and exercise. They have matching shoes, pants, shirts and hiking poles. Adidas and The North Face are extremely popular. Actually, the first staff volleyball practice I went out to, the Principal looked me up and down and asked, “Where your sports wear”? I was a little confused and said, “uhh, this IS my sports wear”. He laughed and responded with, “Ohhh, I buy for you…. hahahah just kidding. You wear sports wear”. I’m still a little offended. I refuse to spend a ton of money on matching sports gear that I’ll wear once a week for an hour. My lulu pants and a t-shirt will have to do. At least my running shoes are up to par.
