South Korea is a country swathed in green, prodding its stony fingers skyward, and the Koreans are a people obsessed with nature, and with mountains in particular. Wherever you travel, you'll see Koreans out in the open air, clad in the latest adventure fashions, pushing ever onward and upward. With China looming to its west and Japan nudging it from the east, it's no wonder the country has played unwilling host to centuries of war games. But no matter how many times its neighbours try to swallow it, South Korea manages to survive intact.

I could feel the unfamiliar twitch in my calf muscles as I wrapped my hands gently around it, and tried to jolt them up from their unconscious state. Nearby, my companion let out an exasperated sigh. “You never told me this was your first time climbing ... Read more >

I felt the clattering of metal against rayon uniform next to me. The glare from the sun was strong, I squinted as the camera flashed; lifting my arm up in a simple hand gesture. Silence, as if the world around me is on pause. I can’t breathe. The air ... Read more >

Fish in a foreign country

Thu, 15 May 2014 | By danellebosch | Views [24] | Scholarship Entry

Fighting the urge to cover my nose, I politely bend forward with my hands clutched together, trying to sound out Kah-ham-sam-ni-da without inhaling. With the absence of a response, I make a mental note that my practiced - “thank you” needs some improvement.... Read more >
