Who’s this Wanderer?

Wanderer, born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, loves traveling (Yeah, who doesn’t, these days?) W’s first international trip was to Tokyo and Osaka in Japan at the age of 10. But she was too young to remember any but the Disneyland. In 1999 she went to Philadelphia, PA, to learn English and lived there for 10 months. There, she met a fearless roommate, who encouraged W to travel by herself.

So, in October of 1999, W took a train from Philadelphia all the way to Montreal and Quebec City, for the first time in her life, all alone. And that’s when she got bitten by the bug and started traveling around the world.

Since then, W’s traveled to Australia (2001), Canada (1995, 1999, 2001), England (2001-2, 2013), Switzerland (2002), Singapore (2002), France (2004), Norway (2005), Palau (2006), Hong Kong (2006, 2012), South Africa (2006), Japan (1989, 2007), U.S. (1998, 1999, 2007, 2009-11), North Korea (2008), Guatemala (2009-10), Portugal (2010), Spain (2010), Argentina (2011), Denmark (2011), and Greenland (2011), and Finland (2013).

W has written a number of travel & tourism articles for daily newspapers and magazines, and is one of the writers of Diamond Mountains, Shining Seas: A Traveler’s Guide to Korea.

W recently received her Master’s in sustainable destination management from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and is now livingย and working in Nuuk, Greenland back to Seoul.
