In some ways it seems like it was just yesterday I was packing to move to Korea to live and teach English. In other ways, because I have seen and done so much in the past 16 months, it seems like years ago I was crouched in my bedroom surrounded by piles of possessions. I was reminded of this packing session last week when I maneuvered my suitcases out from their hiding spots behind my washing machine and slowly began packing up my life once again. While packing I got to thinking about things I packed and hardly used or other things I brought that were completely unnecessary. If you are about to embark on a year in Korea be sure to make a thorough packing list, but also remember to forget a few things. These few things don't deserve space in your luggage. Use the room for other more important items. I know people may not share my packing opinions, but here is a list of things I think you can afford to forget. Take it from me, you can find almost anything in Korea and traveling with less rather than more makes life so much easier. Good luck and please comment with any packing questions you may have.
Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!
After living in Korea for almost a year and a half, I figure I know the area pretty well enough to know what is Korean "culture" and "culture shock" still. So, I decided that compiling a list of fun and cultural things for anyone who is living, or visiting, would be something fun. There is definitely a lot more to add to the list! Look forward to seeing your bucket list check off while teaching English in Korea! Please proceed with caution :]
