Modern generation: “We say that all traditional stuff is too old for us, it is too far from our understanding. And yet, it is the closest to the best experiences that help to run away from the urban flash-like fast moving life”.

Hanok – is the name for a traditional Korean house that is 100% made from wood and all naturally-can-be-found-or-made materials. It was not rare in old days to see somebody build a house from wood. But today it is. People who build such houses do it not only for the good of their own health, but also promote the health-living environment and traditions of their ancestors.


It is not a secret why wood is one of the best materials to make a house from. It is warm, it preserves warmth and it is a living material, so its residents will enjoy the changing wood scent throughout the 4 seasons of Korea. It also absorbs the sound from outside and feels really comfy to stay inside throughout the day (familiar with a feeling when you just want to escape the four walls of your cement-block apartment?).

Hanok houses normally have a yard or even a small farm or a garden around it. I think it is a perfect example for a family house outside the city and frankly, it is my dream to have a house like that.


During my F1 trip to Yeongnam, which was organized by KTO (Korean Tourism Organization) me and my teammates were accommodated in such a house for a one night stay. The name of the house is Seo-mal-bok(서말복). I don’t know whether it is a name for a type of the house or it is a kind of address.The house was built recently in a new village that is next to beautiful Wolchul mountain and national park in the Jeollanam-do province of South Korea. Each house has a big land area around it which makes it look quite deserted, but at the same time really quite and beautiful.

The woman who built this house with her family was a Seoul citizen for her whole life. Having a heavy disease she could not stand the city any longer and initiated a project of a healthy, environment-friendly design for a house, in the beautiful Korean land far from the city. It was late in her 50s that she has made this decision with her husband. After the surgery she needed a quiet place to recover and enjoy a peaceful life close to nature.

She has met us and escorted on her car to the house. We came when it was already dark and since it is a rural area there were no lights at all, so we had no idea where we are and where we were going. But her friendly gestures killed all chances to doubt the situation. ^^ We thought it was just a place to stay and didn’t expect anything special. First, she showed us to our rooms.

The woman has prepared an old Korean traditional tea, served a table with rice-cakes, fruits and a pile of nut look shells called Eung-hae and gathered all of us around the table.The 1st thing we noticed is a nice atmosphere and warm colors. Later we found out that the whole house was made out of wood. Even the doors, similar to paper doors that I saw in Japanese movies, were also made of paper and wood. Huge clay pots of something: maybe Korean spice, rice and kimchi. ^^

We were very tired from the trip and it was a perfect time to rest, sip a tea from those small tea cups and chat. Moreover, the host lady has prepared a special drink for us: a cocktail from a local salty herb “Kalcho” (갈초) that she has gathered from the sea coastal area and mixed with yogurt and honey. It had a strange taste but she insisted on drinking it because it was just That good for our health and digestion. We took our time to enjoy all the snacks and that’s where we’ve asked her all the details about the house and her life here.

The house has 2 floors and normally 2nd floor is for guests A host lady is a member of a big church community so when other church members come to the province, they can visit and stay in her house anytime.




It took her almost 2 years to build this house and it wasn’t cheap at all. Although the house is made of all natural materials they didn’t neglect using all the latest technologies to merge the two worlds: all comforts from the city and nature environment of the village. So there was everything you can find in modern apartment: cold and hot shower, heating, lights, TV and computer (thought there was no Wi-fi), toilets inside etc. But when you open the window, you get slapped by a freshness of the air, coming from the mountains, trees and grass and can see the stars at its brightest and listen to the silence…. Me and other girls took our time to just sit near the window and enjoy the air and star view and share a light chat. It was only the tiredness that made us go back to our rooms and sleep.

Although we slept on a floor mats, it was warm and we had a great rest. The barking of two cute dogs has wakened us up.

It was a magic morning, with freshly prepared breakfast that consisted of Korean porridge, home-made soybean milk, eggs, salad and fruits. We didn’t want to leave, but it was a time to move on.

I liked staying in that house, even for one night. But I got a strong desire to come back and stay there again for longer.

Thank you, Seo-mal-bok! J

Talking about healthy food, one have to look into the roots of the food origins. Where does it come from? How it was grown, cleaned, cooked, preserved, maintained and stored? Many issues arise from this because the food is something we consume directly in to our body and it can affect our health straight away.
Recently many food poisoning were a true disaster for many families which caused a real media explosion. Many from us stopped trusting food items from China. In Korea, people don't trust American beef.
Such public behavior brings us to the recent trend of growing own ingredients whether those are vegetables, chickens or cows. Or... do you already have a small land where you grow your greenery? I won't be surprised, as many people manage to do that even in their apartment conditions.
Following that kind of trend is like green investing. Why? Have you ever thought about how much of carbon is emitted to deliver fresh strawberries to your home? CO2 goes for transportation, delivery, packaging to count the least. But if you have it all home, you invest in your health and the environment as well! Isn't it wonderful! You don't have to worry any more for the quality of your food because you looked over each step of it appearing on your dining table.

Never fear though, http://www.moncleroutletespain.com/ http://www.moncleroutletespain.com/, I am about to layout a pair things you can do to keep more of that money in your pocket. A good rule is to order and purchase your ticket for travel on a Tues. , http://www.moncleroutletespain.com/ moncler outlet, Wed. or Thu. for travel at late or off-peak hours of flying ( like redeye flights ). Not forgetting that some airlines have a purchase it and keep it policy, http://www.moncleroutletespain.com/ moncler online, you can get further discounts from those airlines that are prepared to work with you even after you have acquired your Dirt Cheap Airline Tickets. Some airlines will charge money for any sort of change in your tickets so ensure that the savings will cover these costs too. When you book your trips, a 7 day stay including the weekend, http://www.moncleroutletespain.com/ moncler, will get you the most bargain airline tickets whether there's a sale or not, http://www.moncleroutletespain.com/ moncler chaquetas. These flights are agreed upon between the 2 or more airlines concerned and can save you plenty of cash, http://www.moncleroutletespain.com/ moncler españa. You're able to share frequent flyer miles and have them credited towards your account to be used towards free tickets and other rewards.Related articles:

Most of Koreans eat out a lot. I think that the only food that they normally have at home is breakfast. Huge city and distances doesn’t let them come back home for lunch. And customs to gather for dinner with friends or coworkers makes it difficult for home dinners at times. But this didn’t decrease the health of Korean nation. To the opposite, most of food joints and restaurants in Korea provide purely Korean/ traditional food, just like homemade. So, Korean mothers and wives don’t have to worry about their kids or husbands as far as they don’t forget to eat at all (though they still worry, for sure ;))

For those who stay in Korea or plan to visit this beautiful place, there are many great options for healthy eating out.

Those tips are good for those with sensitive stomach. I met many people, who ate Korean food with no care even for spices. Later I came to know that they have visited China or other asian country already!... ^.^

It happens to us every day: when we rush to work and forget to eat breakfast or lunch; when we simply go out and plan to eat snacks with our friends; or in case we never cook at home. This article will help you to learn few essential tips to assure that you are not ruining your health while eating out.

Most of us already know how food habits affect our health. Eating everyday 3 times according to a schedule is the 1st and most important step in order to build strong immune system against all odds. While it seems too simple, medical doctors assure us that scheduled eating tree times a day can safe you from overweight(!), headaches and weakness feelings ("3 hour diet or 3 meals a day"). And since most of us can’t eat three meals a day at home, one should discover right food places for him/herself.

By saying “right places”, I don t mean luxury restaurants with beautiful design and excellent service. Our everyday spot will be a simple joint selling good quality food with pleasant taste
