    Description

    안녕하세요 My name is Sam. I went abroad to study in Melbourne and I came back to South Korea to work upon graduation. Since then I have been actively involved in promoting language and culture exchange in my country. After working in the city for a long time, I decided to move back to village life and helping the village I am staying now to grow. I am also actively involved in the community works in my area.

    If you are someone who is more into city life, then my village is not suitable for you. However, if you want to have a different travelling experience for your travel in South Korea, I welcome you to give it a try at my place. During your stay here with me, I will provide you with the opportunity to be involved in the community projects that I am involved with. There are many volunteers tasks here that the village need helps with and I welcome volunteers who is looking to help make the place you travel to a better place.

    p.s. We welcome any travelers who are currently stuck in South Korea to have last minute arrangement with us. We understand the situation that travelers are facing now due to this Covid 19 situation and would like to offer temporary arrangement for them so our staying period will be shorten to min 2 weeks.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You have the opportunity to meet Korean families and friends and also have the opportunity to mix with other travelers around the world. I will also cook you some Korean dishes and bring you tour the local attractions whenever I am free. You will also have the chance to practice your Korean as my friends in the village don't really know how to speak English.

    I sincerely wish to attract travelers who are sincere and someone who is happy to practice give and take principle in their life. I truly appreciate your time and contribution at my village and I hope that you will have an enjoyable time at my place.
