    Description

    Hello, I’m Seri lee from Korea. Nice to meet you all 😆

    From the beginning of 2021, I’ve lived in small, remote rural village, where is in jangheung-gun, jullanam-do. It’s about 2 hrs away by intercity bus from Gwangju(the biggest city in Julla-do). From Seoul express bus terminal, it takes about 6 hours to get here. It’s far far down south.

    I was born and raised in Busan, which is second biggest city in Korea. Studied and got a full time job in Seoul, so I can say I’ve spent whole life in the city. The city life was fancy and full of quick pleasure, which I liked at some point, but somehow I couldn’t be satisfied fully.

    Life is short, we only live once, there’s no limitation of my choice about how to live, so I decided to try to live in different way.

    I’m such a big fan of hiking. I worked as a trekking tour guide to bring korean tourists overseas like les Alps, the Himalayas, the Rockies(not climbing to the top, just hiking trails). I used to hike mountains all around Korea since I was younger (my dad loved hiking so he often took me to mountains. Thanks dad!) . And also I love to travel, especially with minimal backpack.

    From these experiences, naturally I could realise it is important to live in harmony with other creatures in Earth. I wanted to look after other members of nature as well as myself. I followed my innner voice, and for me, the first step is to become self-sufficient in food supply. Simply it means, to grow my own veggies! That’s how I ended up living in rural area now.

    I’m super beginner in gardening and farming in stuff, so I need workawayers’ help ! This veggies is for myself, and for treating guests, family, friends. I am a private homestead and only producing for my own consumption.

    As each individual has each unique lifestyle, I like to share each one’s point of view about life, any categories! If you are interested in self-sufficient lifestyle, yoga practice, hiking, gardening, farming, or discovering different lifestyle, I think my place is worth for you to visit.

    🙌🏻🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏾🙌🏿 Any types of workawayers are welcome. 🙌🏻🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏾🙌🏿
    Unfortunately, bringing pets is not allowed.

    Thank you for reading my profile,
    Feel free to ask me any questions if you have.
    Thank you!

    Seri.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It’s remote rural area, so no convenient store, restaurant, pharmacy around. So if you need any kind of stuff while you stay here, buy those in the city.

    My house has low ceiling, so If you are taller than 165cm, it can be a bit uncomfortable to use bathroom and sink.

    You can come here by publich transportation and taxi. It takes about 6hrs from seoul, busan. 2hrs from gwangju. Will give you exact guide by messenger.
