I traveled around South Korea in spring 2011, from Gangwha west to Mokpo, from Jangheung south to Milyang, from Gunwi east to Sealak.
I made my destinations the places I'd never been before. I packed up my backpack with the least possible clothes, an insufficient travel allowance, a pocket notebook, a pencil, and a camcorder and tripod. I put on a winter coat to use as a blanket when I would sleep in the open air. I moved around by walking all day long or by hitching rides with passing motorists. I was able to pass the nights in train stations, village assembly halls, temples, churches, and sometimes in private houses.
During the trip, I met about 100 people and listened to their life stories.
