Korea University International Summer Campus (KU ISC) – Intro

Firstly, let me apologize for the misleading featured image. I took this in winter 2017 during a personal trip and used it because I couldn’t find a better one taken during summer (oops). I’m not sure if I have mentioned this in my previous blog posts, but one of my longest stays in Korea was in the summer of 2017.

My first (and only time so far) going to Nami Island was last December, so I had to do a bit of research on how to get there.
