In 2014, Katie and Ben quit their full-time jobs and set off on a 3-month adventure that never really ended. Along the way, they taught English in South Korea, trekked to Everest Base Camp and traveled the US in a campervan named “Vinny”.
On their travels, they seek good food, interesting culture, authentic experiences and adrenaline-pumping adventures. And whether they are in a remote village or a modern city, they always aim to travel ethically and leave a small footprint while sharing their stories and advice on their blog, Two Wandering Soles.
Though South Korea is a relatively small country, roughly 70% of the land is mountainous, making it the perfect hiking destination. Here are six trails to check out.
Katie and Ben from Two Wandering Soles share 16 things you shouldn’t do on your trip to South Korea. Don’t find out the hard way, know before you go.
