How to survive an international flight with a toddler

Let’s just jump right into it. Ever since we welcomed our first born into our lives, people have been asking us what is the best age to travel with a baby. And if we’re honest, most of the time those people (and their babies) have already passed the mark. We felt that the easiest time to travel with a baby […]

What is K-Pop? (Our Current Top 10)

K-pop, or “Korean Pop” is a huge movement of popular music originating in the Republic of South Korea.   The world of K-Pop is an ever-expanding universe of pastels that is rapidly flying across the Pacific like a tsunami of culture and miniskirts. In case you have no idea what K-Pop is and you’re looking for a taste then you’ve […]

Don’t Mess with K-Pop

At Captain and Clark we love to travel the world to explore new cultures and then share those with you. So buckle up, today we’re taking a look at one of our favorite topics: K-Pop. It should be no secret to anyone that I (Captain) enjoy K-Pop. Some of you may even remember my Pop 10. I’ve risen to the […]

Yangdong Cultural Village

Tawny and I lived in the Korean city of Pohang for two years. Everyday was a chance to put someplace on the map. Every new corner was a bold adventure full of exploration and glory. We were riding our motorcycle on some back roads one weekend when we slipped through a wrinkle in time. Rounding a corner the paved road […]

The Korean Dragon Temple

Coiled around a mountain on the edge of the small village of Chilpo-ri, in South Korea, there is a dragon that eats more people than all the sharks in the world combined. This dragon lies in wait, mouth agape, waiting for anyone to walk inside. The locals call it Daewonsa, and it is the best Korean temple we’ve been to. […]

Korean Bullfights

South Korea has a tradition of bullfights that is as long and time honored as the ones in Spain. With one very large difference, no one dies. A Korean bullfight features two bulls, released into a ring, that push against one another until one decides to run away. All the while their trainer is shouting encouragement to them over their […]

Cat Cafes in Korea

South Korea and Japan have started a new craze of cafes where one can go, get a cup of coffee, and seek companionship.¬†Some cafes charge by the hour and some charge by the cup. When you first walk in it can be a little nerve-wracking. A dozen beautiful eyes all turn to appraise you when you walk in. At first, […]

Some of my favorite Korean signs

English is difficult. Everyone knows that. None more so than the people who have spent their whole lives speaking it. Sometimes this difficulty however rewards us with some of the greatest moments of being lost in translation. As a traveler, one of my most cherished treasures is the sings that Tawny and I encounter as we make our way around […]

Home again

Chris and I have come a long way together, not only in our relationship, but also in our business. It was four and a half years ago that we boarded a plane to South Korea together. We had been dating for a little over a year and thought that we were only going to teach ESL in the country for […]
