Nick from Malta never imagined he'd lose his heart to Jeju waters


Why would someone who grew up by the water, in one of the world's most beautiful countries, be so captivated by Jeju Island? Host Nick was born and bred in Malta, a small country located in the Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean is often regarded as one of the most beautiful seas on earth, but the coral, emerald, jade green, cobalt blue, and turquois of Jeju's waters were somehow a unique attraction for Nick.
 For the last few years, Nick had spent his time traveling throughout Asia and Europe for weeks, and sometimes months at a time. The last destination of his travel was Jeju Island, not for a temporary stay, but to finally put down roots.
 His beloved wife, who he met while traveling in Australia, became his companion for life, and has since been by his side on his travels. The couple has traveled extensively on mainland Korea as well, including his wife's hometown of Andong in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province, famous for its artists and scholars of the Yi Dynasty of Chosun.
 It only took one visit for him to decide to settle on Jeju Island. The main attraction was the water, even to Nick who was familiar with the beauty of the Mediterranean.


“I was never really affected by the sea, since my hometown in Malta is located near the Mediterranean, and I had grown used it. However, when I first came to Jeju Island, it was a shock to me. I had never imagined there could be such nice beaches like this in Korea. The color was totally different from that of East and West Sea of Korea. That’s it. This is the place I’ll settle in with my wife.”

The couple, who has traveled many countries including Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Scotland, Germany, England, and Italy, enjoyed their honeymoon in Malta for a few months before finally choosing Jeju as their love nest, a place where they feel the excitement of its unfamiliarity.

 The couple have settled on Dongbok-ri, which is a quiet,simple village nestled amongst many Jeju villages. They think it has more 'Jejuicy' culture and life than the famous tourist sites on the Island.
 Almost no foreigners visit here, but Nick, who doesn’t speak Korean, said he didn’t feel any discomfort at all. The village people are so warm-hearted and generous to neighbors and visitors, unlike other villages or cities of Korea where locals can be a little shy.
 My expectation of ‘Shanti Shanti guest house was to find a Mediterranean feel, similar to Malta. On the contrary, the guest house makes its guests feel like they are in India. When you open the gate in vivid yellow and step into the garden, soft Indian music and a mild fragrance welcomes you. That’s because India, above all cities and countries they have travelled, has a special place in their heart The name of the guest house ‘Shanti Shanti’ is from the Hindi word, meaning ‘peace’.
