A Life Unexpected

I’ll never forget my first night of living in a foreign country. My husband and I had packed up our life in eight bags and headed out for the greatest adventure we’ve had together. South Korea was our destination, and to be honest, I didn’t know the slightest thing about this foreign country. First of all, I will ashamedly admit, I...

Large Bath Toy or Naked English Teacher?

Living in Korea and not going to a public bath would be a like living in Japan and not eating sushi. I had been living in Korea for almost six months before I had the chance to get naked with some friends.

Top 5 Things to do on Geoje Island

Top 5 Ways To (Not) Be An Offensive Foreigner In Korea

Teaching English in Korea seems to have become a launching pad, or at least a stepping stone, for so many debt-ridden college grads hoping to find adventure and financial relief on the other side of the world. With these foreigners—including my husband and I—come cultural differences. If your desire is to NOT be offensive to the...

Top Ways to Look Like A Native in Korea

It can be pretty scary and intimdating moving to a foreign country. Not only are you hundreds of miles from home, but lots of little things can feel so different. The food, the climate, the people and their habits. It's not surprising that tourists and newbies to an area can stick out like a sore thumb with their wide eyes and their open...

Working Abroad in South Korea

The pre-8am grog: half asleep showers, top-naked breakfast, awkward professional ensembles that may or may not break fashion rules that I certainly don’t care about. This is the inevitability that most of us must face when we choose to work in any kind of office or school or establishment that caters to society’s hours. This is the worst...
