A Night In Busan

One of the girl’s named Nicole that I met through a Facebook group before coming to Korea invited me to her friend’s Rosa’s going away dinner in Busan one weekend. We all got our TEFL from International TEFL Academy (ITA) so it was going to be a dinner with ITA peeps. ITA is pretty cool.Continue reading “A Night In Busan”

Seoraksan National Park

Another long weekend, another adventure. Sokcho is on the east coast in Gangwondo. I booked my Airbnb for February 27 & 28 on the Friday before work and finished packing when I got home. I stayed at The Red House in Sokcho which I booked on Airbnb. The location and price were both great: 30Continue reading “Seoraksan National Park”

Unyang, Gimpo

찌개 <–부대찌개 김치 찌개 –> I really loved Jules’ town. Her apartment is near everything and it’s so cute. I swear there’s more to the town than food…… There were hair salons, bars, restaurants, an emart, and Starbucks all within about a ten minute walk. We met at Starbucks a few of the mornings beforeContinue reading “Unyang, Gimpo”

My Cute Little Apartment

I just gotta say Korea is wicked cool for their recycling/trash waste program. The orange bags that I was given are for soft food waste, the white bags are for hard food/regular trash (bones, packaging, egg shells, etc.) and recyclables can go into a plain plastic bag. They have set times that you are allowedContinue reading “My Cute Little Apartment”

Unpacking✅

Two and a half weeks later and I am moved in! It feels soooo nice to be settled into my apartment. It’s cool cause the apartment that I’m staying in has been used by the previous teachers at my school so it already had some things that I would’ve had to buy here. More onContinue reading “Unpacking✅”

Two Weeks in Korea and then I’m Free-a

Honestly, it hasn’t been as bad as I thought it was going to be. But ask my friends and family how I’ve been and they may say the opposite. I got a box from the government within the first few days of being here. It was filled with tasty food. How sweet of them?! IContinue reading “Two Weeks in Korea and then I’m Free-a”
