Today I added a new list you might enjoy checking out.  After reading this blog entry, go back to the main page and you’ll see it listed to the right below Photos.  Now that my family and I have had a chance to explore Korea a bit, it’s time put together a list of things to do and see when visiting Korea.  We’ve only experienced Seoul, so our horizons are still a bit limited.  We still have to get out of town and see more of this great country.  The list is dynamic, and I’ll revise it as we explore Korea further.  Ten is a short list, but I’ll figure out a way to give you a good taste of Korea.  Think of the top-ten list as a Cliff Notes‘ version of a Lonely Planet guide.  On Monday for Memorial Day we plan to head to Chuncheon, a city about one and half hours east of Seoul.  It’s situated in the foothills of the eastern mountain range.  I’ve heard that the countryside around Chuncheon is very beautiful.  There are numerous resorts along the way, and Chuncheon itself is a nice city.  It’s featured in the Korean drama "Winter Sonata" and is famous for its Korean dishes.  If all goes well, I may just add it to the "Top Ten" list.  Check it out!
