    Whitetail was excellent! It really struck me hard when I had to leave Seoul, and I guess it's because Whitetail made me feel so much at home. Every night I came back to rest, I just felt safe and comfortable. Jun and Jin were excellent hosts! I didn't get the chance to converse with Jin, but she took the initiative to make my bed everyday and replace my towel with a fresh new one every few days. And Jun is willing to entertain your every question about getting around Korea and such. Loved it!
