Life in the ROK

Quite simply, life in the ROK rocks my world. Everyday there is a million new little things I discover and love. I'm convinced there is no where like Korea on Earth. I honestly can't even keep up with all the awesome. So today, some summarizing show and tell:

New experience: Techno club with Koreans!

New word: Jinjilbang - the name of a fantastic spa experience in ROK. You strip down and play in hot and cold pools with other nudies. There are also fountains, saunas and cleansing facilities. To be followed with a beer and a round of air hockey. (Canadians always win ;) )

Discovered a little bit of Paris in Seoul

Celebrated Canada Day with two of 
my favorite Americans!

And then...the beach race!

All kinds of fun happening on the beach!

Next time I want to fly too!

Canadians are the kind of crazy that dive in the ocean
fully clothed.

Four new friends...bicycle built for four...perfect!!

Hotel room view. Can I move in?

Sunday raceday was not so sunny. But still great!

New favorite Korean food: spicy tofu soup (the local specialty in dreamland Gyeongpo beach)
New favorite Korean beverage: Kin cidaaaa
New status: I'm officially an alien!

Yes, I'd say life in the ROK is treating me exceptionally well. I'm so very happy to be here.


  1. Hey Carrie, glad to hear it's going so well in Korea - looks like tons of fun!

  2. Looks like you're having a great time! I heard that South Korea got the Winter Olympics for 2018, I bet the country is going crazy right now!

  3. You look like you're having such a great time! I hope you have so many more amazing experiences!!
