Korea Bucket List

Sometimes, when you live in a place for an extended period of time, it can be easy to think, "oh, I have plenty of time to go there/do that/see that later!" while you sit on the couch eating popcorn and surfing the internet (not like we ever do that ;).

To combat this problem, we made a bucket list for our stay in South Korea. I wanted to make sure that we got to see everything we wanted to while we are here. I wrote down everything on a sheet of paper and hung it in our apartment to have a constant reminder that we still have places to go and things to see! Get off the couch!

As you can see, we've already crossed a few things off! :) If you want to read about our adventures, here they are: bamboo forest, Suncheon Bay, Busan, mud festival.

Have you ever been to South Korea? Is there anything we should add to our list??


  1. Another great festival to hit up is the Hi Seoul Festival along with the Lotus Lantern festival where you can make your own lotus lantern (both happen in the spring). You could strike off two of those at the same time ;)

  2. Good to know! Thanks Arienne! :)

  3. Great list. Mine included: Visited all the provinces, climb Jirisan (highest peak on peninsular South Korea), climb Hallasan (highest peak in the country), hike Soraksan in the fall, take a class that teaches something strictly Korean (cooking, taekwondo, etc), make my own kimchi.

  4. Good idea to have a Korea Bucket list, I think I need to do that too with only 5 months left here! Mine would include visiting Bulguksa in Gyeongju, going to the penis park in Samcheok and going skiing at the 2018 Winter Olympic sight!

  5. Lauren - We haven't really gone hiking yet but we would love to! We need to get on that before the weather gets too cold. How did your kimchi turn out??

    Kate - LOL! There is a penis park??! I'm going to have to Google that! :)

  6. I made my first batch last year. It was edible, but barely. I plan on giving it a second try this fall.
