I am always too full to fully enjoy it. It just tastes so good? So,Continue reading “Why is the food in Yeosu 800 times better than anywhere else in Korea?”

Glamping in South Korea at ‘On the Rock’

Hello Jo So Ko readers, old and new! It has been a while since I have sat down to type the words in my brain onto my blog. I am currently uploading a video I made last week of our glamping anniversary trip. Recently, I have become excited about YouTube and blogging again. I have my cup of tea by my side and I am watching the fourth season of The Crown because I am a 45 year old woman.

Writing my first magazine article – Visiting 5 cafes in Seoul, South Korea

I am so excited to finally be putting this all out into the world. About 2 months ago, I was asked by Coffee t&i Magazine if I could write about some speciality coffee cafes here in Seoul, South Korea.

48 hours in Jeju Island

A few weeks ago, we took a short trip to Jeju Island, located at the south of the Korean Peninsula. While it was controversial to travel during this current pandemic, it was equally crucial to get a change of scenery from the routine of our 9-5’s. We were very safe while we travelled, always woreContinue reading “48 hours in Jeju Island”

A Day in Seoul, South Korea

Hello, Seoul/Korea lovers from near and afar! As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am currently a Global Seoul Mate which is basically an ambassador for all things Seoul 2020.
