Women’s March on the World | Human Rights

This is a different post for this blog, but this blog is meant to show my experiences living abroad and one of the experiences I was so excited to take part in was the Women’s March. I found a sister march to the Women’s March on Washington in Seoul and I immediately changed my plans in order to take part in this event.

Autumn Apple Adventures | Explore Korea

Autumn Apple Adventures | Explore Korea

Autumn in Korea, ┬ácomes with all the delights, including a pumpkin flavoured treat (no, not a PSL). Korea is an amazing place for fall, especially if you live near the mountains. You can look outside your window and see the orange and yellow covered mountains and maybe even go for a hike through the crunchy, coloured leaves. Some of my friends and I decided to take full advantage of the beautiful weather and go off in search of apples. We…

Surfing in November, Ingu-ri | Explore Korea

One of my friends had explored a little surfing town, called Ingu-ri which is near YangYang on the East Coast of Korea, in October and was planning on going back because she said it was an amazing place to go. She described it as this chill haven on the East Coast of Korea, where everyone walked around in wetsuits and men had long hair. She said it had the sort of surfer vibe that one thinks of, when you think…

Hogsmeade Cafe in Daegu | Explore Korea

Have you read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? It was amazing, I cried when I read the first page. Just seeing the names Harry, Ron and Hermione written again in a book makes me tear up with joy and brings back the childhood adventures I went on with this unforgettable trio. I don’t know about you, but Autumn to me feels like the perfect time for a Harry Potter type adventure. I did some research and found that there…

Visiting the Korean Demilitarized Zone | Explore Korea

                        I have been reading a couple books lately on refugees who have escaped North Korea, as well as a short history book on the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). I did not know too much about the Korean War before coming here. I knew that Canada was involved under a UN command and of course the result of the war, but that is about it. I wanted to learn more,…

Garden of Morning Calm | Explore Korea

                        I am slowly exploring Korea and discovering new sites. One of my favourite places I have been is The Garden of Morning Calm in Gapyeong-gun which is in the Gyeonggi-do Province.

An Ancient Palace In The Midst Of A City| Gyeongbokgung Palace | Explore Korea

                      Hello everyone! Well the weather is becoming colder now, and I am okay with that. I was very lucky to have warm, beautiful weather for the whole first month I was here and it is now time to get into the Autumn spirit. Back in September, I purchased a bunch of postcards to send out to friends and family. On many of these postcards was a picture of a…

Finding the Ocean | South Korea

Finding the Ocean | South Korea

                        I love the water, I could sit for hours just watching the waves and the boats and whatever else may be in the water. I can see the mountains from my apartment every day and I love the view, however I really wanted to catch a glimpse of the ocean.
