This is all about my EPIK teaching adventures in Korea!

The Korea Bucket List

DSC_0044Scott and I have researched some cool things to do in Korea, and this is the bucket list we have come up with!

**Update:** We were able to accomplish almost all that we wanted to do. Some things were a bit too complicated to get to with public transportation or too expensive. I’m still pretty happy with the amount of things we were able to knock off this list!
