Heading up to Seoul. Daegu Stadium.

So the week has rolled on at full steam and here we are, nearly at the weekend. I’m rather amazed that I can only say that one more time, as this time in 2 weeks I’ll be doing something, somewhere, in Beijing. The whole gravity of the move is only starting to settle in these [...]

Winter time in Dalseong Park.

December 20th, and yesterday was the first snow fall here in Daegu. It was about a month late from the previous few years, but it was snow none-the-least. It wasn’t at all that cold, thanks mainly due to there being absolutely no wind, and Em and I had planned to go to Dalseong Park, a [...]

S Korea: Camping at Jirisan Mountain '09.

Over the weekend, Em and I, along with a few of our co-workers and friends (amongst them our good buddy Aaron) headed down to Jiri-san National Park for a spot of summer camping. You may recall last year that we took an almost identical trip, and seeing as both Em, Aaron and I enjoyed the [...]

I'm not hot… yet.

Working exclusively with 3 Canadian teachers, I’m often reminded that they come from a place far, far away from where I come from. This can be no more evident then their attitude towards the weather, in particular the ‘heat wave’ we’ve been having here in Daegu. Now Daegu is known to be the warmest (hottest, [...]

Downtown shopping.

What a busy weekend shopping, cleaning, and cooking. On Saturday Em and I decided to spend the day downtown shopping for some clothes. Not so much for me, but for Em, who is in dire need to fatten up her spring collection (which I’m told all women need to do). Without going on too much, [...]

Which is better: Seoul or Korea?

I’m often asked by friends back home; ‘What is it like to live in Korea? What is Seoul like?’ The second half of the question is almost always answered first, seeing as I don’t, and never have, lived in Seoul. The assumption is made that when most foreigners come to Korea that Seoul is their [...]

SKorea: Daegu. Duryu Park.

With yesterday being a magnificent, if slightly windy, day, Em and I decided to make the most of it and headed out to Duryu Park. Neither of us had been there before and it was a good opportunity to get some fresh air and see the cherry blossoms which had just started to bloom throughout [...]

I wonder what this is?

Near the bar district where we live I’ve noticed a few of these banners popping up. At one small intersection there are 4 hanging out on 3 of the corners. The sign reads ‘Just 5 Minutes. Attractive young ladies are waiting for you. You don’t have to wait! Provides more value than your imagination.’ What [...]

A busy weekend and a visit to the soju tent.

Well that was a darn interesting weekend. On Friday night Em met me at my hagwon (lucky girl had the day off from work) and we headed down to the university area where we bought some fried sandwiches, snacks, and drinks, and watched a DVD in a movie room. We ended up watching Elizabeth, seeing [...]
