I am a former management consultant with strong international background, especially in Asia. I stopped counting my travels in Korea and definitely fell in love with this country, its people and culture.
Now entrepreneur, I keep travelling in Korea for business and holidays. As soon as I have a chance, I share my tips with travellers (so much things to know about Korean food and culture...).
One last thing, food is my religion :-)
