About the Talk
Jennifer Barclay first went to Korea in 2000 knowing next to nothing about the country, and spent three exhilarating months travelling around independently, finding a land of rich tradition and spirituality but also good humour, natural beauty and welcoming people proud of their heritage. She talks about the joys of travelling in country that remains mysterious to many westerners, how it can be a truly rewarding travel experience – and why she is still researching and writing about the country ten years later.
