be than a tourist

The other big thing we look at is community. We don’t want to be a group of foreigners working in our own bubble. We try to incorporate into the local scene the best we can through holding events with local individuals, business, NGOs, and government organizations so we make meaningful connections while we are there. Get ready to move past being just a tourist in a location.

We’ll be staying right in the middle of the action in two-bedroom Korean apartments that are stocked with everything you need from wifi to air conditioning to kitchens for those who want to make their own kimchi. Crack a beer and head up to the rooftop at the end of the day to relax and enjoy some views of the city.
