Generally speaking, most people live a triangular life: from their home, to their working place and back home. Gradually, this trend becomes a routine. Over time, it becomes a ritual.
The need to make ends meet, acquire assets, pay bills etc, has led a lot of people to a quest for materialism. People have lost the core value of socialization; human interaction, sharing and togetherness. Everyone is busy. Busy doing "nothing". What happens to weekend get away with loved ones? Nights out with friends? Sightseeing and of course, picnics? Today, all these are gradually becoming obsolete.
Undoubtedly, things are not the way it used to be. Indeed, things have fallen apart. Deep down, everyone craves for adventure, going to new places, trying the finesse cuisine and making new friends. However, due to some factors, these fantasies remain only but a dream. Some people use lack of "time" as an excuse for not living up to these fantasies. However, this excuse is very far from the truth because in as much as tight schedule could be a challenge, the major elephant in the room is paucity of funds, no good places to go to, and lack of exciting opportunities. Somebody vieweing from the outside, would think these people love their jobs so much.
In a bid to fill in the vacuum and help people find a balance between work and social life, Social networks were designed. However, it has not lived up to expectations because even though people are connected virtually, social media has created a rift. Someone may pause to ask; "when last did you see your mum?or plan a vacation with loved ones?" This is the harsh truth of today. Everyone is busy.
For people seeking exciting opportunities and new places to explore, South Korea is there to provide unforgettable moments and experiences. According to the words of Saint Augustine "The world is a book. Those who do not travel read only a page".
