Teach, Learn, Share

We put a sauna in our living room which you should definitely try out. I recently acquired a passion for making Makgeolli rice wine, which I'll gladly show you how to make.

What I Can Share with Hosts

We can talk about interesting subjects and find interesting things to do.
We can hop from interesting bar to interesting bar, or drive to another interesting city with my interesting car or interesting bikes.
We can also find other interesting people so we can have even more interesting times.
Maybe i don't have much time to share and you will need to find something interesting to do by yourself.
Of course i can then give you some interesting suggestions to help you find something that interests you.
