How to pronounce “Corn” and “Cone”

Hope you're enjoying your summer. I just came back from a trip to a rural area in Gangwon-do, South Korea. I got to breathe fresh air and spend some time in nature.

During my stay in Gangwon-do, I didn't check any email, use the internet or even my phone for 4 straight days.

If you've met me in person, you know that I'm an early adopter and I'm tech savvy.

Not being able to use the internet was a torture for me. I wanted to open the browser on my phone many times, but I resisted the urge.

It felt so liberating to be free of the internet for 4 days!
