Dear reader,

As you will read below, I have a big interest and crush for the Korean culture and that means I am interested in traveling to this country, discover it's beauty by foot, find more about their history, visit historical places, interract with locals and discover the delicious quisine of this country.

Why did you choose this destination?

I discovered it by watching TV. It all started with the korean dramas, but as I advanced in this culter, my interests grew bigger that drama and music. I started to do research about traditions, history, food, people, places and found out stories of them.
We all have that one dream destination that we want to go to. My heart has settled on this country and it's beauty.

What makes this meaningful for you?

Along the years I have managed to make many froends from South Korea. They all had parience in talking to me in Korean and they all taught me things about their traditions, holidays, food and shared with me their vacation pictures. I imagined myself there along with them wishing it was real and wanting to fight more to get there. Even if it will be for a short time, I want to make the full of it and make this an incredible moment in my life that I will never forget.

How will you make a difference in the community?

As I grew older, I started to take more interest in history, find out what happened in the past, find out incredible stories about places, battles, personalities. This interest lead my steps into the tourism world. This summer that has passed, I started to work for a local agency and I was able to show my city to tourists trough my eyes. As I got prepared for this, I was able to find out amazing things about my country and my city.
In my coutry it's really hard to find books about Korean history and how this country has evolved along the time. I want to go there, to find, see for myself and feel as I go deeper in it's past.
Please help me gain a great experience, enrich my knowledge and curiosity about this country.
