Exploring South Korea

My wife and I had the opportunity to visit South Korea in May. It was wonderful to see such a beautiful country and such kind and welcoming people. We had the privilege of visiting three different parts of the country. We stayed in Seoul, Sokcho (a fishing city on the eastern coast) and the island of Jeju (a large volcanic island off the southern coast). We also had the opportunity to meet several designers and learn about design and education in South Korea. Traveling through the country was a great chance to view design and the world through different eyes and with a new perspective.
