This post should come as no surprise to those of you who have read my post from January about my big move abroad, but, well, it finally happened! Last Monday I moved to Seoul, South Korea, to start a new part of life as an English teacher for little Korean children. I was lucky enough to find a job actually in the capital itself, and I’m living in what seems to be a pretty decent area (so far), so life is pretty exciting right now!
For those of you who don’t know, I first came to South Korea in 2013 when I participated in a summer school at the University of Seoul. This is when my love for Korea began, and I’ve wanted to come back ever since. I visited for two weeks in the late summer of 2015, which I wrote about in my South Korea Second-Timer series, which only fuelled my desire to come back further, and now I’m finally doing what I’ve waited almost four years for!
The Seoul Diaries will be my account of life here, my discoveries, musings and ins and outs of daily life in Seoul. My ‘diary entries’ will be little snapshots of how life is going living away from home, as a British expat in the Korean capital. As well as these posts, I will be writing my standard travel blog posts about particular attractions, tips and tricks to visiting Seoul and other places in Korea, restaurant and experience reviews and everything else. As always, if there is ever anything you would like to hear about, go let my know by getting in touch by email, or on any of my social networks.
I’m really excited to see what Korean life has in store for me, and I hope you’ll be following along! I currently have limited internet access (I’ve come to a local café to write this!) but I’ll be updating fairly regularly, so keep your keep your eyes out for new posts!
