How I got my first job in Korea

 

When was the last time you did something for the first time?  If it’s been so long that you can’t remember, I would consider that an issue.  In August of 2014 I found that I was asking myself that same question over and over again.  I took every possible opportunity to go try something new.  I took a card-sewing class (yes, you read that right), a brew-master’s tour, adult ballet (and barre) classes, did a scotch-tasting (okay, that one wasn’t quite so new), a Ukranian egg-decorating class (yep – wax, dip, and dye over and over again), and I dined in the dark at a restaurant where all the servers were blind.  We had scheduled axe-throwing and stand-up comedy classes, but ultimately I was just too busy with such an extremely demanding job.

That Liebster Love


New Year’s Eve in Korea

I had planned on ringing in the New Year in some exotic destination.  First it was Boracay (where my bestie McBesterson is currently hangin’ – jealous, what?), then it was Hong Kong (flights were about $200 Canadian, but hotels were another story), and finally I had dreams of Tokyo.


Why You Should Blog About Korea

Moving to Korea is quite an adventure and while you will gain invaluable experience while you're here, whether you're enrolled in a language school, teaching English or simply backpacking across the country, writing a blog is one of the best things you can do to document your journey. But your blog doesn't have to be just a diary to keep track of your day-to-day life. In fact, there are a number of benefits to writing a blog, some more valuable than others. Read on to see what you can gain from blogging.

The Colors of Korea, a Collaborative Blogging Project


South Korea: a nation of kaleidoscopic vibrancy with a prowess to hypnotize any unsuspecting visitor with its technicolor features.

While many might associate the Asian country with the colors of grey concrete, black smog, and neon, there's much more to the palette that illustrates the colorful attributes that make up Korea.
