So you can call me Willow. It may sound a bit weird as an English name but my Korean name actually means willow tree. That's why I use it as my English name.

A Recent Review of this guide
Willow (her name in English) was an excellent guide and driver. The mini-van she provided was very comfortable with more than enough room for the four of us. She was very good at selecting sights and activities that matched our interests and physical limitations. One highlight was a wonderful Korean lunch where we were able to sample a wide variety of dishes.
