Traveler Bio

Hello! My name is Madison Wilson, I am 21 years old, and I'm from Boston, Massachusetts. I'm excited to share photos and stories from my recent experiences in South Korea with you! I arrived in Seoul on June 21, 2018. While there, I studied Korean language and culture, and took a drama class where we watched Korean films and acted out scenes. I made a lot of new friends, both from South Korea and all over the world.

I also spent a lot of time traveling around South Korea. I got to see the more rural parts of South Korea, as well as more urban areas like Busan. It was really eye-opening to see how each city had it's own unique culture. I went to many concerts, events, and museums. I saw K-pop stars like BTS, Chungha and Jay Park, and I even went to the biggest water gun festival of the year! I can't wait to share these experiences with you.
