Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Carrie, and this is Peaks and Penguins.
I’m so happy you’re here! I’ve got so much to share with you. My awesome husband/best friend/adventure partner and I have been busy exploring the world, mostly on foot or by bicycle, for the past 7 years, and we’ve accumulated a lot of photos, videos and stories along the way!
This is a brand new space that will one day grow into an archive for those photos and stories. Please, take a look around! This website is a work in progress, so not all links are active yet. But you can check out the ‘Start Here!’ page to learn a bit more about what this blog is and aspires to be. The quick summary: Peaks and Penguins is about our hikes, bike rides, ultramarathons, animal encounters, plant-based lifestyle, and travels around the world.
Right now, you can discover the mountains of Korea with me, including all of Korea’s National Parks! Or, check out some of my other favorite adventures in South Korea, like circumnavigating Jeju Island on foot or running my first ultramarathon(s).
Stay tuned for more peaks, places, plants, and yes, maybe even penguins!
Up next is my 100k race report, and a series about Korea’s Provincial Parks!
Thanks for visiting, and happy adventuring to you!
