"The travel vocabulary was especially helpful. Some of the smaller towns we explored did not have a lot of English speakers and so we had to rely on my Korean skills to navigate the buses, trains, and taxis. And these books are small so they fit easily into a purse or backpack without weighing you down." —These Temporary Tents blog
