Our Korean adventure started in August 2010. We worked for EPIK (A Korean Government funded programme) as Native English Teachers and loved our time there. In all we lived in a small town called Hwacheon, which is approximately 9km from North Korea for two years. It was surrounded by mountains, rivers and a huge lake. It’s an incredibly picturesque place and despite the location – was much safer than it sounds. The military element certainly made things a bit more exciting though, that’s for sure.
