Meet the Author


Travel to South Korea was a big step for this young Scandinavian from Minnesota, but go he did with never a regret. Two years' experience in the Peace Corps were some of the best and worst of times, but always an education. Two more years of teaching privately in Korea were followed by a slow sojourn from Seoul to Bali, and from there across to the Khyber Pass, before returning to the United States. Robert Nilsen has returned to South Korea four times since, to total nearly seven years of living, working, and traveling in the country. In addition to writing Moon South Korea, he has assisted in rewriting a travel guide to Indonesia, and revises the Hawaii series for Avalon Travel: Moon Hawaii, Moon Kaua'i, Moon O'ahu, Moon Maui, and Moon Big Island of Hawai'i. Now that the fourth edition of this book is on the bookshelf, Robert hopes to spend more time on other interests while the reader uses this book to explore one of Asia's least known yet wonderfully fascinating countries.
