What have those two Canadian critters Simon & Martina been up to this week? 

They've dipped their toes (and beards) in at a few Korean water parks of late, and boy do they have different rules! The guys talk about how different it must be coming from a culture who doesn't learn to swim in school.

It's Chuseok holiday! Ummm what is that?

- Families travel to their hometowns to pay respect to their ancestors; visit the family grave, clean it up and leave offerings (food, goods, favourite things of their ancestors)

- There's also special Chuseok food – Songpyeon (stuffed rice cake dumpling) YUM!

Simon & Martina will talk you through the rest :)
