Korea Bucket List

Back in February 2013, I started a bucket list for Korea. Only one day after publishing it I realised I'd left some things off and I had made some duplicates (oops!).

So this is my new updated Bucket list with things crossed off and even more things added!

I wonder how much I'll get done before my adventure here finishes??

*In February 2015, I decided to review my bucket list. Somethings have been deleted like skiing and building a snowman as winter is now over and I didn't get the opportunity. Others like the big swing in Cheonpung were removed as something that no longer interests me or the hot air balloon ride because I have decided to do it somewhere else (moved to the other column). I don't have that many weeks left before I go home and I've decided I'd rather priortise those that I REALLY want to do and delete the things that would be nice "to haves".
