In South Korea, hiking has become almost a national identity
Joyce Park stashed this in Camping and hiking
I went out for a quick jaunt this weekend after a big rain, and the woods were full of Koreans! Why has hiking become such an all-consuming craze among Koreans on both sides of the Pacific Ocean? Baby-boomers, man.
Be careful -- many Koreans are *addicted* to hiking.
“It’s almost like an addiction,” said Shin Soon-no, 65, who hikes several times a week with her husband, Kim Hong-seong. “Your body starts to crave it.”
That's a great addiction to have!
Except if you get headaches because you're suffering from withdrawal.
