A house made of stone doesn’t sound like that much of a spectacular place I have to admit. However you haven’t visited Bahay na Bato, which in translation means ‘stone house’.

Rice Terraces of Batad – Self Guided

Vegetarian nightmare – South Korea

Being a vegetarian whilst travelling in Korea was really difficult. It has most definitely been the hardest country to find food with no meat or fish. Even harder than other countries I found difficult such as Taiwan and Brazil.


So I thought I would write this post to help others who are travelling in South Korea.
