Tigers & Magpies travel editor, Eddie Provencher, is an American citizen who first came to the Korean peninsula in September 2006 to teach English, learn Korean, and to have a cultural experience. Since coming to Korea Eddie has grown to love teaching English, has passed the Test of Proficiency In Korean (TOPIK) Level 4, and has had many deep cultural experiences.
In the spring of 2009 Eddie took a 3 month break from teaching English to travel in Korea. Through this experience, Eddie developed a sincere appreciation for the natural beauty of the landscape, for the culinary tastes of the nation, and for the warmth and kindness of the Korean people.
Here on Tigers & Magpies you will find Korean travel reports and photos so that you can learn a little bit more about the Korean peninsula, and so that you too can travel and have a travel experience worth remembering and cherishing.
