It’s been a little over three months since we have moved to Korea, and it’s been a great journey so far. We live in a great place that I would compare to Steamboat Springs in a lot of ways.
There is a major focus on outdoor activities, which we enjoy. Roaming around can lead to some great sites and views. There was a major battle during the Korean War in our area. When you go hiking, you can still see the remains of that war with bunkers, land mine patches and trenches. While walking along the streets you can see rice paddies (many say the best rice in Korea), canyons, waterfalls, temples and memorials.
Here are some photos that have all been taken in Cheorwon over the first quarter of our adventure in Korea.
