... that I would definitely visit again. It's slightly more rough around the edges than Japan but I don't think that's a bad thing. I have to say I love the food here too, hot and spicy, just how I like it! It's hard to pick a highlight because I've really enjoyed every place I've visited but I think the scenery on Jeju Island plus my lovely guest house there made it one of my fave experiences.

... people spoke English. We had to carry my luggage up several flights of stairs to get out of the subway, and then thankfully Elio met us on the street to help get luggage to his apartment. He lives very close to the subway but the street…or path…to his place is winding and confusing. It’s easy to get lost.
