After having read the book “Laufen, essen, schlafen” (“Walk, eat, sleep”) by Christine Thürmer earlier this year, I really got interested in long-distance hiking.
Last week, the office here in Korea was closed due to the annual summer vacation – which provided a very welcome yet unexpected chance for me to explore the country a little more.
Time flies. Since I already spent more than a month here in Korea, I felt like it’s time to draw an (almost) halftime résumé and summarize some peculiarities I became aware of while living here.
Last weekend, I teamed up with some colleagues again, this time to spend two days in Seoul. This would be my first time ever to visit the capital, so I was all the more excited.
Last weekend, I arrived at my next station: Gumi, South Korea. Just like at my previous project locations, I will be spending three months here.
This trainee program is really giving me the possibility to explore a large variety of different cities. About a week ago, I moved yet again and am now staying at my third location this year: Passau, Bavaria.
