With the New Year comes a new site that I am sure many of you will find interesting.   It is Jeju World Wide.

It wasn’t too many years ago that it was really difficult to find anything in English about places outside of Seoul.  Now there are several including Busan Haps, Daegu Pockets and, of course, Jeju World Wide.  These online newspaper/magazines have a lot to offer but, for the most part, seem to be relatively unknown to people outside of their immediate area.  Hopefully this posting will help them gain some well-deserved interest.

Jeju World Wide is a must for anyone thinking about or planning on visiting the island.  Even if you are not going to the island there are a lot of articles that readers on the Hole might find interesting such as Dr. David Nemeth’s recollections as a Peace Corps volunteer on Jeju Island in the 1970s.

In addition, there are maps to the various historic and natural sites, interviews and cultural information.

As this will be constantly updated and added to – in the words of a dreaded first sergeant from my past – “It would behoove you to keep your self acquainted” with the Jeju World Wide.
