David's Channel:
My trip to South Korea without Audrey begins in Toronto's Pearson International Airport where I grab a quick burger before boarding my direct 13 hour + flight with Air Canada to Incheon. Upon arriving in Seoul I check into my hotel and enjoy a quick dinner with some of the other YouTubers. The rest of the night is all about Korean barbecue.
David, having not tried Korean barbecue before, loved the Korean pork belly samgyupsal. Aside from the delicious meat it was the side dishes and especially the spicy salad and samjang sauce that tickled our tastebuds. After dinner we grabbed some Korean craft beers before calling it a night. Overall, it was a fantastic night in Seoul and a great beginning to our Korean trip together.
A special thanks to the KTO (Korean Tourism Organization) for making this vlogging trip to South Korea possible.

South Korea Trip STARTS NOW! | Korean Barbecue in Seoul eating Samgyeopsal (삼겹살):
Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a vlogging travel couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world.
Our most recent trip was to South Korea where I embarked upon a two-week adventure without Audrey. Invited as part of a YouTube vlogging trip, organized by KTO, I spent the first week traveling with other YouTubers in Seoul, Busan and Gyeongju. My second week included independent exploration of Korea with my good friend and fellow YouTuber David of DavidsBeenHere.
Having lived and traveled in South Korea, the chance to return to one of my favorite countries was one of the biggest surprises of 2019. On this particular trip, I had an opportunity to do many things I had not previously covered including a visit to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone between South Korea and North Korea), a Buddhist Temple Stay and a Korean cooking class. It was almost as if the program designed by KTO knew exactly what I had missed out on before.
Obviously, a huge highlight from the two weeks I spent revisiting Korea was the food. I feasted on all of my favorite Korean dishes including Korean barbecue, dolsot bibimbap, haemul pajeon, tteokbokki, bulgogi, kimbap and many others. I can honestly say that Korean food is world-class and is one of my top 5 favorite cuisines in the world. Aside from trying familiar dishes, I had the opportunity to sample raw Korean seafood for the first time.
While visiting Seoul, highlights included going to Gyeongbokgung Palace, Namsan Seoul Tower, Jogyesa Temple and Hongdae. As one of the biggest cities in the world, I barely scratched the surface of things to do in Seoul.
Spending extended time in Busan was my favorite part about the trip with top highlights including a Korean temple stay, fresh fish markets and a Korean baseball game. It was from Busan that we ended up taking a day-trip to Daegu where we enjoyed a traditional Korean market and tried Galbi-Jjim for the first time.
