Land of the Morning Calm


I between 1988 and 2001, I lived in Korea for 8 of those 13 years. During that time I came to know, respect and love the Korean people. I empathize with them over their divided country and with their proud heritage. I learned the language and attended university there and am an avid buff of recent Korean history.

I lived in the Pyongtaek area, but was fortunate enough to own a car and was able to travel the entire country while I was there. I have climbed Soraksan, been to Dragon Valley Ski Resort, the beach at Pusan, Sashimi in Mokpo, the east coast cliffs and camping at Woraksan National Park (even did some trout fishing there).

In the future, I will expand my Korea page to include places that I have spent time in in Korea and give you the reader insight into different parts of Korea. I already have a Seoul travel guide because it is an entity unto itself. I hope you enjoy the rest of my entries.

  1. The traveller's-eye view of men and women is not satisfying. A man might spend his life in trains and restaurants and know nothing of humanity at the end. To know, one must be an actor as well as a spectator.

  2. He who is only a traveler learns things at second-hand and by the halves, and is poor authority. We are most interested when science reports what those men already know practically or instinctively, for that alone is a true humanity, or account of human experience.Flights to Toronto
