5 Movies Travelers Should Watch Before Visiting South Korea
In South Korea, film and travel are closely intertwined.

Do I need travel insurance?
Travel is a beautiful experience. I love exploring new places and drinking in new cultures. Despite how enriching it is, less than desirable events can occur. I should know.
Over the years I’ve had many very positive experiences. But I’ve had a few sour ones. Namely, I broke my ankle while in South Korea. And my phone was stolen in Cambodia. I’ve also had flights delayed and some baggage mishaps.

Here’s a little review of the main ones that I visited and some stuff you can get up to yourself as well while exploring islands in Thailand.
